The Seahawks roster is extremely top-heavy
Depth is what separates good teams from great teams. There is someone ready to fill in with the “next man up” mentality when someone goes down. From the looks of it, the Seahawks do not have that. If this preseason has taught us anything, it’s that the Seahawks’ backups are not very good.
Preseason is the perfect time for young and unknown guys to shine and that has not been the case these past few weeks. Can you think of one reserve player that has flashed and been overly impressive these two weeks? I, probably like you, cannot.
This team looks really good on paper as it has many star players, but I am getting more concerned about their overall depth by the week. If Duane Brown’s contract dispute continues to linger or he gets hurt at some point, who goes in at left tackle?
Can anyone be confident with the rest of the edge rushers to hold serve if Carlos Dunlap ever goes down? From what we have seen this preseason, the answer is no. Someone needs to step up, but they are running out of time to do so.
