Analysis: How Did Seahawks Offensive Tackles Perform in 2021?

With starters Duane Brown and Brandon Shell returning, Seattle expected to have better results protecting Russell Wilson in 2021. While both veterans dealt with their share of struggles and didn't play up to their standards, the emergence of an unheralded rookie provides optimism for the future.

Despite entering the 2021 season with championship aspirations, the Seahawks lost five of their first eight games and never fully recovered, finishing in last place in the NFC West with a 7-10 record.

Following an offseason in which quarterback Russell Wilson aired his grievances about getting hit too much, Seattle's offensive tackles endured a roller coaster of a season protecting the quarterback in 2021. Along the way, however, the team may have unearthed their latest undrafted gem in Jake Curhan, while Duane Brown seemed to find the fountain of youth in the final two months.

Looking back at the season in retrospect, how did Seattle's offensive tackles perform as a group in 2021? And what comes next at the position?
