Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Monday, July 18 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

ESPN: Seahawks Have NFL's Top "Young" Talent

Last Monday, ESPN NFL Insiders pinned the Seahawks as the team with the best future for the next three seasons.  This week, they broke down the future of the league even further.  The Seahawks were favorable in the categories "team with the most talented 'young' roster" and "team you would most want to coach right now."

Which team has the most talented "young" roster in the NFL?

John Clayton, senior NFL writer: Seattle.  Its entire core is under contract for a few more years and most of its best players aren't close to their 30s.  Plus they reloaded big-time in the draft.

Mike Sando, senior NFL writer: Seattle.  It has zero starts over the age of 30 and several in the 23-28 range.

Field Yates, NFL Insider: It's scary to think, but my answer is Seattle.  Consider the list of players on its roster who are 27 or younger: Russell Wilson, Earl Thomas, Bobby Wagner, Doug Baldwin, Thomas Rawls, Jermaine Kearse, Tyler Lockett, K.J. Wright, Jeremy Lane and a host of others.  Deep and talented.

Which team would you most want to coach right now?

Matt Bowen, NFL writer: Seattle.  Swagger, speed and a suffocating defense.

Sando: Seattle for the roster, owner, stadium and location.

Other questions answered by the panel were, which quarterback you want for the next 10 years, which rookie would you want roster for the next five years, which coach hired this offseason will be looked at as the best hire five years from now, what will be the NFL's worst contract in three years, and what city will have an NFL team within the next 10 years.
