What Seattle Seahawks player is the Jaguars biggest concern?

New, comments

There will be some interesting match ups on Sunday, but which Seahawks player is the biggest concern for the Jaguars?

Otto Greule Jr

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been a train wreck on offense in their losses to the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders to begin the season and there's plenty of blame to go around. While the defense for the Jaguars hasn't looked to bad, particularly bad has been the offensive line play for the team.

Problems along the offensive line have been from all five players at different times and it's tough to guess where the pressure will come from in Week 3, but if Jaguars fans were to pick the area of most concern they'd likely choose the interior.

Lining up at the 1-technique for the Seahawks will be Brandon Mebane, a 6'1, 309-pound defensive tackle that has consistently improved since joining the team as a third-round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. Starting in the middle of top-ranked Seattle defense in 2012, Mebane had arguably his best NFL season and looked like he was continuing on that vain in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Matching up against Jonathan Goodwin and Mike Iupati for most of the game, Mebane dominated and forced three quarterback hurries from the interior.

For obvious reasons, that matchup is going to be a tough one for the combination of Will Rackley and Brad Meester, who are off to a bad start in 2013. Unless Rackley is able to turn around his play quickly, expect to see Mebane getting after Chad Henne often and shutting down the Jaguars running game too.
