Seattle Seahawks Camp Preview: Pre-Camp Depth Chart


We’ve almost made it through this week of waiting. Football is almost here. Just a couple more days…

In the mean time, I figured I’d update the Seahawks depth chart. I haven’t updated it since the draft, so its clearly overdue. First the chart, then the explanation, remember this is how things are right now, not how they’ll be for week 1:

Position Starter Backup 3rd String
QB Flynn Jackson Wilson Portis
RB Lynch Turbin Lumpkin Washington
FB Robinson
TE Miller Winslow Morrah McCoy
Flanker Rice Lockette Bulter Martin
Split End Durham Obomanu Tuinel Kearse
Slot Baldwin Tate Bates Kenney
LT Okung Omiyale Coughman
LG McQuistan Lutui Fanaika
C Unger JeanPierre
RG Moffitt Johnson Sweezy
RT Giacomini Barron Carpenter
Leo Clemons Irvin Davis Scruggs
NT Mebane McDonald
3T Branch Jones Howard
5T Bryant Levingston Law
SAM Wright McCoy Smith Knox
MIKE Wagner Ruud Moten Bradford
WILL Hill Toomer Morgan Konz
RCB Sherman Trufant Maxwell Francies
LCB Browner Lane Maragos Lewis
SS Chancellor Guy Adams
FS Thomas Johnson Shead

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first thing people will argue about is placing QB Matt Flynn at #1. The reports of Tarvaris Jackson being #1 are erroneous. Jackson gets the day 1 snaps because its his turn in the competition, not because he’s in the lead. Flynn was the best of QBs during the offseason program, and thus he’s the #1 QB as of right now. This competition is far from over.

The other big issue is that I don’t have duplicate names on here, and that was intentional in order to put as many names on here since they are fighting for a spot. For instance, I could have put Deuce Lutui as the backup at both RG and LG, and I expect that would be the case if the season started today, but someone else will be RG when the 2nd team offense is on the field during camp.

I also contemplated putting the nickel back, and pass rushing replacement for the 5-tech, and other package specific positions on here, but decided against it. I’m sure you can understand why.
