Seahawks cornerbacks (5)

Tariq Woolen, Devon Witherspoon, Mike Jackson, Coby Bryant, Tre Brown

As of this writing, Witherspoon hasn't signed his rookie deal while he is waiting to figure out how much of the deal will be guaranteed, I assume. Still, let's assume Witherspoon will be practicing soon and there's no way he misses any part of the season, if healthy. But he still has to beat out Jackson as Jackson was pretty good last year and appears to have had an excellent offseason as well. Woolen is a beast. Bryant will start in the slot. Brown just needs to stay healthy.

Seahawks safeties (4)

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

I don't have Jamal Adams here as I assume he starts on the PUP list. I am honestly not sure if Adams will ever play another down for the Seahawks. Hopefully, he comes back healthy at some point in 2023 and makes a big impact.

If the starting duo is Diggs and Love long-term, that's perfectly fine. Diggs is an underappreciated safety league-wide and that motivates him to be even better. Love was good for the New York Giants last year and will help in run support. Blount is a mediocre backup. Reed, though, likes to thump people and could surprise by making an impact on special teams this year.

Seahawks special teams (3)

Jason Myers, Michael Dickson, Chris Stoll

Not much to discuss here. You might be able to pencil these same three names in for who will be the kicker (Myers), punter (Dickson), and long-snapper (Stoll) for the next four years. On special teams, consistency is an excellent thing.
