The 2013 NFL Draft was huge for offensive tackles, as three of the first four picks were tackles and five tackles were taken overall in the first round. Bailey also played guard while at Arkansas, and he has been a dominant blocker at times, but he has also been known to struggle against speed rushers.

The Seahawks didn't take any offensive lineman early in the draft this year, but they loaded up on them in seventh round, when they selected LSU lineman Ryan Seymour, New Hampshire guard Jared Smith and Northeastern State tackle Michael Bowie.

Bailey should be able to compete with these linemen for a spot on the roster, as they all look to provide depth for the offensive line that gave up 33 sacks in 2012 and helped Marshawn Lynch rush for 1,590 yards and 11 touchdowns.
