Seattle Seahawks 53-man Roster Projection: Will J.J. Arcega-Whiteside Make The Cut? – Pro Football Network

The Seattle Seahawks’ 53-man roster is in flux. They have a few building blocks secured for the future, but Seattle must find a new franchise QB.
The Seattle Seahawks‘ 53-man roster looks a lot different without Russell Wilson under center. For the first time since Wilson’s rookie season, the Seahawks won’t be part of the discussion for the NFC West title prior to the start of the year.

Seattle will split their offensive and defensive personnel in half, with a 25/25 split. Only carrying two quarterbacks into the regular season means they get to go heavy elsewhere on the offensive side of the ball.
Starters will be annotated with an asterisk.

Seattle’s defensive front is still strong, boasting Poona Ford, Shelby Harris, Al Woods, Darrell Taylor, and now Uchenna Nwosu. But they also drafted Boye Mafe and Tyreke Smith in April, and Alton Robinson flashed as a rookie in 2021. Additionally, Jordyn Brooks has already proved to be an above-average starter at linebacker.
Cornerback is the biggest question mark for the team now. Sidney Jones, Artie Burns, and Tre Brown don’t move the needle. Luckily for Seahawks fans, the defense has modernized since their Legion of Boom days. The addition of more two-high safety looks means less of an overall burden on the cornerbacks but with an added emphasis on the safeties’ ability to cover.
The offense has weapons. DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett are both outstanding pass catchers, and Noah Fant has insane potential as a weapon at tight end. They simply don’t have the quarterback play to get to the postseason unless one of the two competing players goes beyond what we’ve seen from either.
