I still think the Seahawks need cornerback help going into 2021. Seattle has thrown a little money at the issue by signing Ahkello Witherspoon, Damarious Randall and Pierre Desir as well as still having Tre Flowers and D.J. Reed on the roster and drafting Tre Brown. Plus, Ugo Amadi (who is really a safety) was the slot cornerback in 2020. But this is just a bunch of bodies and high-end talent is still in question.
Bashaud Breeland has quietly been one of the most consistent corners over the last few years. His quarterback rating allowed in 2020 was 78.3, 88.7 in 2019 (still pretty good) and an amazing 49.9 rating, albeit in an injury-shortened season.
The fact of the matter is that Breeland knows how to provide sticky coverage and could immediately be the Seahawks best cover corner. Breeland also doesn’t have to simply play in the slot as he can play outside. Breeland would give Seattle another corner, sure, but would provide the closest to a sure-thing at corner than anything else on the current roster.
Breeland has also started 88 times in 7 seasons so he has plenty of experience to help a player like Tre Brown learn what it means to be a good pro. Breeland could be a multi-year answer to the Seattle cornerback issue.
