The Seattle Seahawks roster is generally regarded as one of the best in the NFL top to bottom, but what about the talent level within the roster? Our co-editor Dan Viens takes a shot at ranking the team’s Top 25 players in order.
(PART 1 OF 25 IN A SERIES)
NFL Network does their Top 100 NFL players list every year, and this off season we’ve seen our share of analysts taking a crack at ranking the best rosters in the league. As we enter into the dog days of the off season, with the start of training camp still over a month away, I wanted to see what it would look like if I tried to rank the best 25 players the Seahawks have.
It was harder than I thought.
The top 10 was pretty easy. I would suspect most would end up with the same 10-12 names in some order or another. After that it gets dicey.
Among the challenges, how do you figure in the rookies and players who have never played a down in Seattle?

My criteria was wide-ranging. Sometimes I went with pure talent, and other times I gave more weight to the players importance to the team. And in certain cases the players role…….played a role in my ranking. When in doubt, however, I would just ask myself “who’s the better player?”
So here we go……
The 25th Best Player On The Seahawks Roster Is….
#25: MARK GLOWINSKI, G
Seriously? This is where it starts?
Any of you who have read my 12th Man Rising stuff over the last 1+ years know I’ve been high on this player since he was drafted last year. I simply think he’s the best pure guard the team has drafted since Pete Carroll arrived. He played great at RG against Arizona in his one start last year, and looks to be the front-runner to start at LG in 2016.
Many believe Rees Odiahambo was drafted to eventually be the starter on the left side, but I’m high enough on Glowinski’s skill set to think it’s going to be extremely tough to beat him out. He’s tough, with the kind of mean streak that Tom Cable loves. He moves well enough to get to the second level, and he just might be the strongest player on the team. NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock once called Glowinski a guy who could be a “10 year starter in the league” once he gets his chance to play.
Look for Glow to lock down the LG spot in camp and prove to be a building block for a Seahawks offensive line under complete renovation. He could be a mainstay for years to come.
