Pro Football Talk’s Gregg Rosenthal cleared up what the conditional draft pick traded for Marshawn Lynch will be. The 2012 draft pick starts as a 6th rounder, moving up to a 5th rounder if Lynch meets performance benchmarks. He also notes that if the offensive line can’t get going, it won’t matter that Lynch is in the backfield.
If Seattle can’t fix their offensive line, it won’t matter who is at running back. The Seahawks rank 28th in total offense and 27th in rushing yards-per-game through four weeks.
