The Seattle Seahawks 2022 training camp is well underway. Here is a guess at who is going to make the team once final roster cuts are made.
As many changes as the Seahawks have made this offseason, most of the starting roster spots are probably known. It’s the key positions that still need an answer, such as quarterback, that make most national pundits pause when it comes to saying Seattle can be successful this year.
That said, there are a lot of spots still open and that makes this training camp one of the more interesting for Seattle in the last decade. This camp is exciting but also scary. There is potential for the team with so many young players but that potential could mean good things or bad.
But who is going to make the team overall? Here is our latest guess at which players make the final 53-man roster for the Seahawks in 2022.

Seahawks quarterbacks (3): Geno Smith, Drew Lock and Jacob Eason
I am going with three quarterbacks on the roster to start the 2022 season and here is why. In the last decade, Seattle knew they could rely on Russell Wilson to play every down of every game. There wasn’t a need for a second quarterback, let alone a third. But Wilson getting injured for the first time ever last year surely makes Seattle think twice about how many quarterbacks they need on game day.
The other part of this is that while Wilson, though flawed, was very good for so many years, Seattle doesn’t truly know how good any of its current quarterbacks can be for the length of a full season. Maybe Lock or Smith will be solid or maybe they will be awful.
Eason at least has a strong arm and maybe with some seasoning can be an OK spot starter, if needed.
