Having gone through each section of the Seahawks prospective roster for 2021, it is time to put all the jigsaw pieces together and see what sort of picture it paints for Pete Carroll’s squad next season.
As those that have read my previous pieces looking at each section of the roster, the QB, the offensive line, the running game, the receivers, the defensive front and secondary, have been put together with formulas built around my own ratings and those of pff.com.
So when looking to calculate a final overall rating for each roster I have weighted each of these sections according to its importance to success. So how good your QB is has a greater weighting than the other categories, in terms of percentage weighting it works out roughly.
QB 23%, Receivers 18%, Defensive secondary 17%, Running game 15%, Offensive line 14%, defensive front 13%. I have spent hours working out the math behind the formulas and will not waste your time explaining in great detail how I arrived at this equation. It is based on what previous successful teams have had, that is those that win super bowls to reach the playoffs.
Comparing the Seahawks roster to other teams
With the benefit of seeing what final answer this formula has produced, I am confident I have a good formula that gives a pretty accurate ranking for each of the 32 teams and most importantly for the Seattle Seahawks prospect in 2021.
With the draft upcoming and 15-20 decent free agents still looking for teams, there is still time for teams to move up and down this list, but this list is based on rosters as of Midday Seattle time on 16th April.
