Breakout Year Expected for Seahawks Okung
The Seahawks’ left tackle Russell Okung hasn’t quite had a chance to live up to his first round draft status due to injuries. One NFL analyst is expecting him to have a breakout year.
At ESPN.com, NFL analyst John Clayton has posted a photo blog of the Top Ten Breakout Players of 2012. He has the Seahawks’ Russell Okung and the Redskins’ Trent Williams tied at the number 10 spot.
Clayton said “Entering their third seasons, the top two left tackles from the 2010 draft should start to claim their Pro Bowl spots. Okung has to stay healthy and Williams needs to be more consistent.”
Okung was having a great season last year until he was hurt in last season’s Philadelphia game injuring a pectoral muscle when the Eagles’ Trent Cole grabbed him under the arm and threw him to the ground.
