Every NFL team has a superstar or three, but often seasons are made or broken by the quality of depth. Unsung players need to step up and be great sometimes. Thankfully for the Seattle Seahawks, the team has a number of players the casual football fan may not know but who could have important years for the team.

Seattle does have some top-end talent. Players such as DK Metcalf and Leonard Williams are among the best at what they do. Seattle should be able to count on them to have excelent production.

But the four players that follow could also play a big part in the team being successful. These players stem from veterans to second-year pros. Each, hopefully, will have excellent seasons.

Four unsung Seattle Seahawks who could play a big part in the team's 2024 success

Running back Kenny McIntosh

McIntosh had a weird rookie season. In training camp with starter Kenneth Walker III and backup Zach Charbonnet sidelined with minor ailments, McIntosh got a lot of reps. He looked explosive and versatile and able to help the team in various ways. Then in the team's mock scrimmage in early August, McIntosh hurt his leg and had a difficult time returning. He ended up playing in only three games in 2023 and all the snaps he got were on special teams.

Now that DeeJay Dallas has left in free agency and signing with the Arizona Cardinals, this should mean that the third running back available on game days is McIntosh. New head coach Mike Macdonald offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb could choose to do things differently, but in most recent years, Seattle has only had three running backs active on game days.

McIntosh should have the versatility - in college and in training camp he showed he could run and catch - to get several reps a game. He also has good enough speed to play in the league. 2024 could be Kenny McIntosh's break-out season.
