The NFL Scouting Combine kicks off in Indianapolis this week, a big part of the pre-draft process the Seahawks and 31 other teams will use to evaluate the 2024 draft class. With the combine getting going, it's always fun to look back at some memorable performances by players who would go on to become Seahawks, so with that in mind, here are five numbers of note from Seahawks players at the combine:


The 40-yard dash time of cornerback Riq Woolen, which is tied for the fourth fastest in combine history. Woolen's combination of speed and 6-foot-4 size helped Woolen become Pro Bowler as a rookie after he tied for the NFL lead with six interceptions.

27 reps, 4.33 seconds, 40.5 inches & 11 feet, 2 inches

The marks put up by DK Metcalf in the bench press, 40-yard dash, vertical leap and broad jump at the 2019 combine. While Metcalf's blazing 40 time, a ridiculous number for a player his size, got the most attention, it was Metcalf's overall performance at the combine that really illustrated what rare athlete he is.


The 40-yard dash times of twin brothers Shaquill and Shaquem Griffin, recorded one year apart, with both players eventually getting drafted by the Seahawks. Shaquem's time was the fasted by a linebacker since 2003. He also put up an impressive 20 reps on the bench press using a specialized prosthetic left hand that allowed him to take part in the event.


The 40-yard dash time recorded by Kam Chancellor in 2010, a not-so-fast performance that led many analysts to wonder if he had the speed to play safety in the NFL. Chancellor's career, which saw him become a four-time Pro-Bowler and two-time second-team All-Pro, and the tone setter for one of the best defenses in NFL history, is a good reminder that while a good combine performance can help a prospect, a subpar one hardly defines that player's future.


Vertical leap, in inches, by J.R. Sweezy at the 2012 combine. While Sweezy was a defensive lineman in college, he converted to guard in the NFL and went on to a long career as a starting guard, including starting on Seattle's back-to-back Super Bowl teams. While he was listed as a defensive lineman at the combine, his leap of 36 inches is just an inch short of the combine record for offensive linemen.
