Alright folks, the rest of these will be going up on Patreon for the time being, but here is the first breakdown of one of the key rookies for the Seattle Seahawks. If you enjoy it and have $1.24 or more to spare, head over to https://www.patreon.com/seahawksnest if you want to check out the rest as soon as they come up.
McDowell is likely to see time in multiple places on the Defensive Line, but the team sees him most as a 3 Technique Defensive Tackle who can provide interior pass rush and create pressure up the middle on passing downs. For his rookie season, it will be his ability to handle the run that puts a cap on his playing time. If McDowell handles the run at a proficient level on the inside and can put together some pass rushing ability he will see a lot of snaps and be one of the top 3 Interior Defensive Linemen along with Ahtyba Rubin and Jarran Reed, otherwise he will be more along the expected usage of Nazair Jones who will play 30% or so of the time.
