Seahawks No. 2 In ESPN's 'Future' Power Rankings

ESPN Insiders Field Yates, Louis Riddick and Mike Sando ranked the 32 teams across the league based on which ones they feel are in the best shape for the next three seasons.

With a score of 86.43, the Seahawks placed second on the list behind Super Bowl LI champions New England (90.12). Here's why the panel of insiders believe the Seahawks graded so highly:

The Seahawks build the depth of their roster through late-round picks -- as is the case around the league -- but also have found stars that are foundational pieces at discounted rates in free agency (Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril arrived on modest deals) and in the middle rounds of the draft (Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor and more).
