The scariest thing as a fan is heading into a season where your favorite team could prove to be very good is having one position group that is a huge question mark. For the Seahawks entering 2021, this is at cornerback.
Seattle has tried to address the concern at a group that used to be a strength of the team when players like Richard Sherman played press coverage by signing a lot of players with the potential to be pretty good, or pretty bad. Seattle still has Tre Flowers and D.J. Reed but neither player is one that the Seahawks can 100 percent count on to shut opposing receivers down.
Along with Flowers (who is in the last year of his current contract) and Reed, Seattle drafted Tre Brown, re-signed former Seahawk Pierre Desir, signed Ahkello Witherspoon, signed and moved Demarious Randall from safety to corner, signed Bryan Mills as a 2021 undrafted free agent and still have players like Gavin Heslop hanging around.
This is a lot of parts for a unit that will likely only keep four or five players. There is no true starter among the players. Reed was pretty good in 2020 but there’s no guarantee he will be so again. Flowers was awful to start 2020 and good at the end. The rest are the same way as far as consistency. Maybe Tre Brown will turn out to be a great draft pick.
