I'm a ginormous Seahawks fan. When I saw us make our 1st round pick last night, to be honest I had to go do a little bit of reading up on James Carpenter. Is he going to help Russell Okung fix our O-Line?

He's a very good kid. Came to us as a JUCO transfer and started every game at LT the past two years. Wasn't a superstar, but did a very good job. LT probably isn't his ideal position. He's a quiet kid. Just goes about his work and you don't hear much from him. He's a very good athlete and probably still has a lot of room to grow as a football player with training. Not a mauler but gets the job done. I think taking him with the first round pick was a bit of a stretch (most expected him to go in the second) but he'll do well in Seattle. You won't have to worry about him much.
I think so.He can play guard or tackle.I dont think people know how banged up he was last season.Probably not healthy until senior bowl.
Sounds promising... thanks for the insight, guys.
I think we would have preferred to make a trade, but we definitely need help on the line so I'm pretty pleased we got him. It sounds like he's got a lot of power.
To quote my boy Noah, "Hells yeah. Charlie Whitehurst finally get the protection he needs!"
