Top 10 Best Seattle Seahawks Players Going Into the 2018 SeasonSuddenly, Seattle doesn’t look so stable. They’ve lost most of their greatest defensive players, and the ones left are practically on the trading block. Seattle still however has some talent. We’re looking at the top ten best Seattle Seahawks players going into the 2018 season.
The Top Ten
He’s still the best player on the team. He was at the front of his team in passing and rushing, which is not surprising, considering they have one of, if not, the least talent at running back in the NFL. If he goes down with injury in 2018, it would be absolutely devastating, because he’s the one carrying this team on his shoulders. - PackFan2005
He’s one of the only talented players on defense Seattle kept, and he’s the only one currently on stable ground with the team. With Kam Chancellor waiting to be cleared from his neck injury and Earl Thomas on the hot seat, Wagner is their defensive leader in 2018. - PackFan2005
Baldwin has a huge responsibility in 2018. With receivers such as Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham gone, Baldwin may receive the majority of Russell Wilson’s targets. I think he’ll have a break out season in 2018 based on my assumptions. - PackFan2005
The Raiders really reshaped on special teams, and their kicker didn’t have a place anymore under Gruden. Now replacing Blair Walsh, he won’t have to fill in very big footsteps. - PackFan2005
He’s on the trading block, holding out for a new contract. His production has also steadily declined, and he’s not the same all-pro safety anymore. - PackFan2005
Lockett is a stellar kick returner, but needs to step up at wide receiver. He only had 2 touchdowns last season at receiver, and he’s Seattle’s new number two receiver. Assuming he stays healthy, he can be a pro bowl contender like his rookie season self. - PackFan2005
He was traded in the midst of 2017 and still made the pro bowl. I think Brown was a smart investment for Seattle, and it’ll pay off in the future. - PackFan2005
While I didn’t like him being chosen in the first round, he is still really talented, and can bring Seattle’s backfield out of the basement. - PackFan2005
His neck is really concerning. This could end his career. Cliff Avrill is gone for the same reason. It’s likely Chancellor starts a few games in 2018, but his career won’t last much longer. Neck injuries took out some greats after all.
Update: Chancellor has officially retired from the NFL due to complications with his neck injury. He played at a high level most of his career, and may he have a nice retirement. - PackFan2005
