Analysis: The Seattle Seahawks selected James Carpenter in the first round of the 2011 draft with the hopes of plugging the hole at the right tackle spot. At the very least, they hoped he would be able to bump inside to guard. So far, Carpenter has failed to live up to expectations.
This is why Matt Miller and Drafttek both have them selecting an offensive lineman in the first round. It's interesting that both have former Alabama players as a possible replacement for another former Alabama star in Carpenter.
D.J. Fluker is a prototypical right tackle in that he possesses excellent size and is able to generate a push off the line. However, there are plenty of holes in his game that could cause some concern. He struggles reaching the edge against speed rushers and isn't as powerful as his size suggests.
Seattle would hate to see a repeat of the Carpenter situation.
