Eight Best Players on the 2017 Seahawks Roster
By Lee Vowell
6. Michael Bennett, Defensive End
Bennett is among the best defensive lineman in the NFL. He is not the biggest defensive end, but he may be the smartest. Bennett is the biggest disruptor along the Seahawks line. Cliff Avril and Frank Clark are excellent, but neither of them has the overall game that Bennett does.
Bennett came into the league as an undrafted free agent. Read that last sentence again. Whenever you think about how all the NFL teams know exactly what they are doing, remember there are a whole bunch of talented guys who found themselves undrafted. Bennett could be a future Hall of Famer who was undrafted.
Bennett was not at his healthiest in 2016 and that affected the team. Bennett has the adaptability to move inside of obvious passing downs. Without him, Seattle got nothing from its interior rush. To get back to the Super Bowl in 2017, Seattle needs a healthy Michael Bennett.
