Seahawks Legion of Boom Garners Decent Grade for Added Depth This Offseason

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse


Hey there 12′s! I’m back today in my continuous attempt to fairly grade the Seahawks’ post-draft, offseason acquisition grades by position. Sorry I’ve taken a couple days off of this series, but today I’m back to begin the first of four defensive grades for you to assess.

Again we’ll look at the losses in the units to attempt to assess what the Hawks needed to replace. Today we’re talking Legion of Boom additions and subtractions as they pertain to the Hawks’ secondary.

*As always this is of course very subjective, so please feel free to debate or uphold my thoughts on each of these in the comments below! Offensive grades linked: WRs, RBs and TEs, QBs, OL

    Sounds like Jefferson could be a solid backup…he lacked technique in the combine report (started playing ball his senior year of HS) and could really benefit practicing with the Legion and being exposed to Carol’s philosophy (especially with his off field problems)..one strength he was listed for at the combine in 2010 was as a press cover guy and was considered a “solid return specialist”….I think Jeremy Lane is going to have his chance to shine in the nickle slot…he prefers outside corner over nickle…but will give Seattle experience in the secondary and their system…. Don’t forget that Pinkins played Safety at SD State…granted Seattle was interested in developing him as a corner…but, in college..his responsibilities as a safety was to cover the slot guy and TE in the San Diego’s defensive scheme…the 3-3-5 or more familiar version of the nickle defense…..Look for Simon to step up as a backup corner…he was a good receiver and corner his senior year of high school and has Sherman type qualities and was known as a playmaker at LSU ….Seattle needs to know where they are at with him since he spent last year on IR and, Maxwell is a free agent next year….Deshawn Shead may still play in the mix…he also is a free agent next year…one player that Sherman spoke highly of last year on the practice squad was Akeem Nicks…he is smaller…but apparently has a good skill set and a year under Seattle’s system…Pre-Season is where this is all going to shake out

    Legion of boom=legion of dud. Look, stevie johnson just burned you for over 100 yards in receiving while legion of boom commits egregious PI.
