Analysis: Could Damien Lewis Be Seattle Seahawks’ Center in 2022?

  • by

With the arrivals of offensive coordinator Shane Waldron and then-run game coordinator Andy Dickerson, the Seahawks employed an increased number of under center looks and zone run concepts in 2021. But the schematic and philosophical shift wasn’t the only change their offensive line underwent ; the unit had a pair of new primary starters in center Kyle Fuller and right guard Gabe Jackson, and also featured a switch in positions for second-year guard Damien Lewis.

To allow the veteran Jackson to stay at his more natural spot on the right side, Lewis moved over to left guard—a role he never filled at LSU, nor during his accomplished rookie season with Seattle. As to be expected, there were some highs and plenty of lows, resulting in a slight uptick in pass blocking efficiency from 2020 (96.9 percent) to 2021 (97.3 percent) and severe dips in Pro Football Focus grading (70.2 overall to 57.1; 81.5 run blocking to 60.3).
