2) Defensive Line
The defensive line is extremely talented and they look to be very close to the depth that the line had in 2013 when the Seahawks won the Super Bowl. Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril headline this position group and have been the key to success on the line for the past several years. Bennett has been basically unstoppable, and Avril is consistently putting pressure on the quarterback.
In the middle of the defensive line the starters look to be Ahtyba Rubin and either rookie Jarran Reed or Sealver Siliga. Ahtyba Rubin played very well for the Seahawks defense last season and helped limit opposing running backs to minimal yards. Replacing Brandon Mebane is no small task, but Reed and Siliga are more than capable of taking over.
The depth of the defensive line is crucial, and the Seahawks have a lot of backups that will be making big impacts this season.
Frank Clark and Chris Clemons will be putting pressure on the quarterback from the defensive end spot. Jordan Hill and rookie Quinton Jefferson will be the interior pass rushers, and both these players have the strength and quickness to wreak havoc in the backfield.
A few others names to keep an eye on are Ryan Robinson, Tavaris Barnes, David Perkins, and DeAngelo Tyson. These players could all surprise us during training camp and make this depth even more exciting.
