Training camp officially starts for the Seattle Seahawks begins on July 28. Here is a 53-man roster prediction for the 2020 season before camp starts.
The Seahawks have a very good roster and it got better on Saturday when Seattle traded for First-Team All-Pro safety Jamal Adams. With a bit of luck and a lot of health, Seattle could make a deep run in the 2020 playoffs. Not making the playoffs this season would be a disappointment.
Seattle is deep at their offensive skill positions. The offensive line remains a question but quarterback Russell Wilson helps overcome that weakness seemingly every year. He will have a lot of options in which to throw to and when he isn’t passing Seattle’s running back group can generate yards.
Defensively, the Seahawks are loaded on the backend. The linebacker unit might be the best in the NFL. After adding Adams and cornerback Quinton Dunbar this offseason, the secondary is one of the best in the league too. The question is on the defensive line and whether Seattle can contain the run and put pressure on opposing quarterbacks.
I still think Seattle finds a way to re-sign Jadeveon Clowney and that fixes the last huge issue Seattle has on defense: An edge rusher who can also help against the run. If Clowney is added, Seattle’s defense should be much better this year. That is if Ken Norton Jr. can lead his group to be better.
So who makes the 2020 Seahawks and who is on the practice squad? These are my first guesses.
