the offseason we have been taking a look at the 2018 draft picks of the Seattle Seahawks with the benefit of a year of hindsight. So far we have been through each of the first two selections of the Seahawks Jaron Brown Color Rush Jersey , includingFirst round pick, running back Rashaad Penny out of San Diego State and Third round pick, defensive end Rasheem Green out of USC. In addition, we have already looked at the final two selections the team made inSeventh round pick, quarterback Alex McGough out of Florida International University andSixth round pick, defensive end Jacob Martin out of Temple. That brings us to the middle five picks of the draft, and today we’ll start off with the only member of the 2018 draft class who is still with the team after not playing a single snap for the Seahawks during the regular season, tackle Jamarco Jones out of Ohio State. Jones spent the entirety of the 2018 campaign on injured reserve, after suffering a severe high ankle sprain on just his twentieth offensive snap of the preseason. The injury was severe enough to require surgery to be properly repaired, and from all indications from the team he has made a full recovery during . The Seahawks have not had great luck with players who required surgery to repair an ankle injury coming back and performing at a high level, with names such as tight end Zach Miller and running backs Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy never able to return to form after requiring ankle surgery. However, perhaps the team’s luck has changed following Chris Carson’s return to pre-injury form in 2018 following a devastating ankle injury in Week 4 of 2017. Assuming he successfully returns from the injury, Jones could play a key role at tackle moving forward. Left tackle Duane Brown had a fantastic 2018 season, however, he was one of the five oldest starting linemen in the NFL in 2019 and will turn 34 before the 2019 season starts. At right tackle Germain Ifedi did a great job of showing fans he’s got potential to be a long term solution, but with only one year remaining on his rookie contract and a fifth year option behind that, there’s no guarantee that that future will be with the Seahawks. Further complicating the tackle picture for the Hawks, but potentially opening things up for Jones is the fact that swing tackle George Fant is a restricted free agent. It will certainly be interesting to see what the team does with Fant, but if the team feels that Jones has the potential to be the swing tackle going forward, they could feel less inclined to keep Fant around as depth. Obviously, there is a lot that we as fans don’t know, since we only got to see twenty snaps of action from Jones Tre Flowers Color Rush Jersey , while the team got to see much more of him in practice prior to the injury. It will certainly be a situation worth watching as we move through the offseason. Also, you can feel free to post “Incomplete” in the comments section, but since it takes years to properly evaluate a draft, incomplete is the assumed default grade for all draft picks after a single season. If “Incomplete” was anything other than a cop out option, I’d put it in the poll. That in mind, here’s the poll as you’re on your way to the comments section to note that incomplete is the only logically conceivable grade for this selection since he hasn’t seen a single snap of action for the team. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Although the Los Angeles Rams hadn’t lost a game until last week, their spectacular season has featured several close calls.Not many were closer than their 33-31 victory just five weeks ago in Seattle, where the Seahawks racked up 190 yards rushing, intercepted two passes by Jared Goff and came agonizingly close to a huge NFC West win.With the second-place Seahawks (4-4) visiting the Coliseum on Sunday for the rematch, the Rams (8-1) have a chance to essentially end the division race with seven weeks to go. The Rams aren’t looking that far ahead, but Aaron Donald hopes Los Angeles will learn from that narrow win in Seattle — and a 45-35 loss at New Orleans last week.“We’re in a good place, and we’re locked in,” said the Rams’ superstar defensive tackle, second in the NFL with 10 sacks. “We play these guys twice a year, so we’ve got respect for them. We’ve just got to get after them.”The Rams have never lost back-to-back regular-season games in their 1½ seasons under Sean McVay, but they’ve thrived primarily on the strength of an offense that has been able to outscore nearly every opponent, including the Seahawks. NFL scoring leader Todd Gurley rushed for three TDs in Seattle, and the Rams kept the ball out of Russell Wilson’s hands in the final 3:38 by running out the clock.The Seahawks also are coming off a loss after the Chargers won in Seattle last week, but the Seahawks know they can beat the Rams because they did it last season at the Coliseum.Even if the division race might already be out of hand, they’ve got a chance to begin their playoff rally with a statement victory.“We can’t allow them to score as many points as they put up,” Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner said. “We feel like we did a really good job against the run for the most part. We have to find a way to do that, make them one-dimensional David Moore Color Rush Jersey , make sure Todd doesn’t get into the end zone as many times as he did.”More things to watch in this NFC West showdown:TOUGH CHECKDonald has sacked Wilson eight times in their careers, more than any other quarterback. But Donald and the Rams didn’t manage to sack Drew Brees last week, and they still have something to prove to the Seahawks — particularly to guard D.J. Fluker, who wasn’t impressed by the toughness of the Los Angeles defense in the clubs’ previous meeting.The Seattle offensive lineman said the Rams “want to be pass rushers,” but hadn’t “seen a team go out there and actually take it to them.” Donald had no interest in starting a public discussion this week: “We’re just going to go out there and play a game and let our play speak for us.”RUN AROUNDSeattle’s impressive rushing performance in their first meeting with the Rams included 116 yards from Chris Carson, but he is in question for the rematch because of a hip injury that caused him to sit the final 2½ quarters last week against the Chargers. Mike Davis and seldom-used Rashaad Penny probably would replace Carson.But Seattle also has offensive line concerns after Fluker injured his calf late in the loss to the Chargers. Fluker’s addition to the offensive line helped spark Seattle’s turnaround in the run game starting in late September.GURLEY GOESGurley has scored a touchdown in a franchise-record 12 straight games, and his 868 yards rushing are the NFL’s most by a whopping 162 yards over Pittsburgh’s James Connor.Gurley’s 16 TDs this season are the most in the league and the second-most in NFL history through nine games, trailing only Jim Brown’s 17 in 1958. That’s the challenge facing Seattle’s run defense, which is giving up 4.8 yards per attempt — tied for fourth-worst in the league — but has been effective in stretches.GET MARCUSFormer Washington Huskies defensive back Marcus Peters was targeted repeatedly by the Saints, and the Rams’ top corner took the blame for much of Brees’ success. The Seahawks undoubtedly saw the former Pro Bowl cover man’s struggles on video, but Rams defensive coordinator Wade Phillips has limited options in the continued injury absence of cornerback Aqib Talib. The Rams’ best solution might be increased pressure on Wilson, who has been sacked 25 times already this season.SAFETY PLANBradley McDougald has been one of Seattle’s defensive standouts, but with a quick turnaround to facing Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers next Thursday, McDougald may end up sitting out against the Rams because of a bothersome knee injury. If McDougald can’t play, the Seahawks would turn to second-year safety Delano Hill, which could create an extremely young secondary. If Hill starts, he would play alongside second-year free safety Tedric Thompson, second-year cornerback Shaquill Griffin and rookie cornerback Tre Flowers. Nickel cornerback Justin Coleman, in his fourth season, would be the veteran of the group.
