Seahawks cornerbacks (5)

Riq Woolen, Devon Witherspoon, Mike Jackson, Artie Burns, Tre Brown

I have a change here since I did this kind of list before training camp started. Coby Bryant has been getting safety reps and he was pretty good against the Vikings, especially for someone who hadn't played safety before. I am going to assume he sticks at safety for now and once Witherspoon is back from his (what appears to be) minor injury, Witherspoon will start in the slot. Jackson and Woolen will be the outside guys.

Seahawks safeties (5)

Julian Love, Quandre Diggs, Coby Bryant, Joey Blount, Jerrick Reed II

I am going to assume Jamal Adams begins on the PUP list, but when he returns he could end up playing more linebacker than defensive back. Love and Diggs should be very good on the backend of the defense and Bryant might be able to back up either one. Reed needs a bit more time to season before he gets a lot of reps, but he likes to hit and has at least played a bunch of safety. I am not the biggest fan of Blount, but then I don't make the decisions (for the betterment of 12s everywhere) and the Seahawks coaches seem to think he is OK.

Seahawks special teams (3)

Jason Myers, Michael Dickson, Chris Stoll

No surprises here. Myers is the kicker, Dickson is the punter, and undrafted free agent Stoll will be the long snapper. I could probably copy and paste this same thing for the next three years, at least. That is a good thing.
