Seahawks draft agenda should begin on the defensive line

Seattle made a couple of additions bringing back Bruce Irvin and Benson Mayowa in free agency. But with continued uncertainty about Clowney, the pass rush must be a priority in the upcoming draft.

FILE - In this Dec. 30, 2018, file photo, Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, left, talks with general manager John Schneider before the team's NFL football game against the Arizona Cardinals in Seattle. There is a clear and obvious need for the Seahawks to address along the defensive line and it happens to be one of the deeper positions of talent in the entire draft. That may be far too simplistic and straightforward for Schneider and Carroll. Schneider is always good for a few surprises in the draft, and more than a couple of trades.
So, while it seems addressing the pass rush — especially with the continuing unknowns around Jadeveon Clowney — is the obvious direction for Schneider and the Seahawks, it’s never that clear with Seattle. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren, File)
