Seahawks cornerbacks (5)

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

Head coach Pete Carroll has basically stated that Witherspoon is going to be the starter in the slot, once he is healthy enough to play. This means that one outside corner spot is going to be a battle between Mike Jackson and Tre Brown. I assumed that Jackson would be the starter based on how he looked in 2022. But Jackson was horrible against the Cowboys and Brown had an interception, so anything is possible still.

Seahawks safeties (4)

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

Coby Bryant has played well enough in the preseason to show he would be OK at safety, even though Pro Football Focus has graded him poorly through two games. Reed has looked very good, though he can't be too trusted with getting many reps in real games yet as a rookie. I have removed Joey Blount from this list for now as Seattle might only go with four safeties and might assume Jamal Adams will be able to return somewhat early in the season.

Seahawks special teams (3)

Jason Myers, Michael Dickson, Chris Stoll

Dickson and Myers were excellent against the Cowboys, Myers' 57-yard field goal was a thing of beauty. And Stoll got down the field on one punt and made a tackle. That is pretty unusual for a long snapper.
