The Seahawks are entering a make-or-break season. They have studs all over the roster. Players such as Russell Wilson, DK Metcalf, Duane Brown, Bobby Wagner, Jamal Adams, and Quandre Digs we all know to be rock-solid.
However, outside of these stars, how strong is the roster? The strength of a team never lies with one or two names but with the overall makeup of the team.
Questions such as:
- How solid are the non-star starters?
- What happens if a star gets injured?
- Does the team have the depth to absorb a substantial injury?
- Can it absorb multiple injuries?
- Or this year’s unfortunate scenario of contract disputes holding out into the regular season.
All are all valid.
The Seahawks strength of every position grouping entering the pre-season.
The team will have injuries. It happens every year. The injury bug shows no prejudice. However, the team that wins it all is often times based on luck and who had the best overall roster construction from top to bottom.
The Seahawks are on paper a very strong team. They have stars, solid role players, and depth. However, not every position grouping was created equally. There are certain spots that were built stronger than others.
The article goes in order from the strongest to the weakest position groupings (QB, RB, IOL, OT, etc.). The ranking takes into account the starters, depth, injury history, and overall confidence in the position. Follow me onto the next slide where I will dive into what positions are sitting the best and which I am concerned about.
