According to the News Tribune, Seahawks third-year offensive lineman John Moffitt is expected to compete with J.R. Sweezy for the starting right guard spot during training camp. Moffitt, a third-year pro, and converted defensive lineman Sweezy split practice repetitions at right guard with the first unit during Seattle’s offseason program while the two battle for the starting job. A seventh-round selection last season who had not played offensive line since youth football, Sweezy was a surprise starter at right guard for the season opener at Arizona. It sounds like Moffitt and Sweezy will have an equal opportunity to win the starting job.  Each player has his fair share of pros and cons. Sweezy, 24, had a rough game against the Cardinals, but rebounded to start the final two games of the regular season and Seattle’s two playoff games. At 6-5 and 298 pounds, Sweezy is Seattle’s most athletic lineman, running the 40-yard dash in 4.85 seconds at the NFL scouting combine in 2012. Along with his physical attributes, Cable likes the North Carolina State product’s motor and feisty attitude. Moffitt, a third-round selection out of Wisconsin in 2011, is considered a technician who can play all three interior line spots. He missed the last seven games of his rookie season with a right knee injury that required surgery. He has slimmed down this spring, appearing quicker during the team’s offseason program. At 6-4 and 319 pounds, Moffitt, 26, started 15 games his first two years with Seattle.   Need NFL Tickets?
