Seattle bolsters their offensive line, trades for Matt Tobin
- The Seattle Seahawks have announced on their Twitter that they traded two draft picks to acquire Philadelphia Eagles offensive guard/tackle Matt Tobin.
- Tobin joined the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2013 and has been utilized at both offensive guard and tackle. He has seen the bulk of his work at tackle, starting thirteen games in 2015, where his PFF pass blocking efficiency (pressure allowed on a per-snap basis with weighting toward sacks allowed) was 96.9, with five total pressures allowed in 127 passing snaps.
- Last season, Tobin saw limited action with just one start in 12 total appearances, but performed well at tackle with zero pressures allowed from 52 passing snaps.
- Tobin’s versatility was highlighted in 2014, when he started seven games for the Eagles at offensive guard, allowing zero pressures on 60 passing snaps, with his 100.0 pass blocking efficiency ranking tied for first in the league, on a limited sample size.
- During the 2014 season, Tobin also performed well in the run game recording a PFF run block grade of 80.9, which ranked 16th among 77 eligible guards.
