Seahawks' Tom Cable: Germain Ifedi critics will have to eat their words

Every weekday morning, we'll round up local and national Seattle Seahawks-related links.

During an interview on 710 ESPN Seattle, Seahawks offensive-line coach Tom Cable was asked about Pro Football Focus labeling Germain Ifedi the worst first-round pick in the draft:

“You watch him and see what you think then. ... People don’t have to be accountable, they can say or think what they want, and that’s OK. But what they really don’t realize is how they could screw up a young person, because all these kids read all the Twitter and social media. One minute they’re loved and the next minute they can’t do this or they can’t do that, it was a bad pick, or whatever. Fortunately ... Germain is a strong-minded, strong-willed kid. ... So I just think watching him play, it will be kind of cool, whoever they are, they’ll kind of eat their words.”

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times takes a player-by-player look at the offensive line, including left guard Mark Glowinksi:

The second-year player from West Virginia got one start at RG last year at Arizona but is being moved to the left side to compete with Rees Odhiambo to take an opening created when Justin Britt was moved to center. Glowinski would likely be the starter if the season began today though it has appeared he and Odhiambo have basically shared time at the spot in the OTAs open to the media. Asked if Glowinski has had any problem moving from the right side to the left, Cable said “No issues, no issues."

Cliff Avril and K.J. Wright will make their first Pro Bowls this season, predicts Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com:

Pete Carroll has put together the best defense of this generation, and its continuity is incredible. It's hard to believe that two of the team's pillars haven't ever made it to the Pro Bowl. Avril, like his teammate Michael Bennett, only gets better at pass rushing as he gets older. Wright does a lot of the dirty work in coverage and against the run that gets ignored in Pro Bowl voting, but that doesn't make it right. So we wanted to recognize him here.
