Seahawks running backs (5)

Kenneth Walker III, Zach Charbonnet, DeeJay Dallas, Kenny McIntosh, Nick Bellore

Again, I have Bellore listed here, but he could be listed with the running back unit or the linebacker group. Either way, he is making the roster and could once again be the special teams captain. He is too valuable a voice in the locker room to let leave.

I saw one site from the FanSided family that had DeeJay Dallas as a cut candidate and potentially Bryant Koback could make the team instead. Dallas isn't going anywhere, however. He is too versatile. As far as the other running backs on the list, the only worry about not making the active roster at the beginning of the season is McIntosh who is missing a couple of weeks with a knee injury.

Seahawks wide receivers (6)

DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Jake Bobo, Dareke Young, Cody Thompson

We know Dee Eskridge isn't going to be on the active roster to begin the season because he was suspended for the first six games of the year due to an off-field incident. Plus, Eskridge, always a threat to be hurt, was injured on the first play of the Vikings game. In his place, I have Jake Bobo making the team.

Bobo seems to be a Cooper Kupp-light type receiver. He doesn't wow a person athletically, but he's just a football player. I am not saying Bobo will be as good as Kupp, but if he has half of Kupp's production when Kupp is healthy that would be fantastic. Also, I still have Young making the team though his missing practices due to a hip issue is a concern.
