Seahawks' Russell Okung: Potential Pro Bowler In 2012?

Can Seattle Seahawks offensive lineman Russell Okung be a pro bowler in 2012? Pat Kirwan of CBS Sports thinks he can be.

Kirwan lists Okung amongst a few other players as possible pro bowlers, noting that he has all the skills to get it done but must keep away from the injury bug:

Injuries are the main issue for this young player. When healthy he demonstrates why he was a first-round pick. If he stays on the field for 16 games, the truth will come out about this athletic pass blocking left tackle."

It will be important for Okung to have a nice game against the Chiefs, as Russell Wilson makes his first start for the Seahawks, and will need some protection from his O-line. Kansas City has an attacking defense that will want to get their hands on Wilson, so Okung's play will be of utmost importance.
