It is in the skills that he learned from skating in his younger days that has translated into excellent footwork at the position, allowing him to work from the knee bend and move backwards in pass protection.
There's may be some uncertainty at the quarterback positon for Seattle However, a lot of their deficiencies on the offensive end has to be rooted in their inconsistent offensive line. Quarterbacks Christian Ponder, Jake Locker and Ryan Mallet may be a consideration at this point.

Watkins immediately gives them a very tough and fundamentally sound body to help right way. He can fill that hole at the right guard spot that has been a big problem for the Seahawks in recent years.
