Good afternoon, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today – Tuesday, June 28 – about your Seattle Seahawks.
Seahawks Linebackers Ranked Eighth-Best Unit By Pro Football Focus
It's that time of the offseason when Pro Football Focus unveils its lists for top players at their respectable positions; and this year is no different. Seth Galina of PFF ranks the top NFL linebacker units for the upcoming NFL season; with the Seattle Seahawks coming in at No.8.
The Seahawks roster may sport many new faces, but Galina is optimistic about the linebacker group under defensive coordinator Clint Hurtt.
This ranking may be a surprise after the Seahawks lost future Hall of Famer Bobby Wagner in free agency this offseason, but Wagner seemed to be on the downslope of his career. Jordyn Brooks is an ascending star who will get more snaps this year. Cody Barton is another interesting player who will finally get a chance to start this season.
Brooks started all 17 games for the Seahawks in 2021, recording 184 combined tackles, 10 tackles for loss, one sack and a fumble recovery. In May, Sam Monson of PFF ranked as the league's No.16 linebacker coming into the 2022 NFL season.
The Seahawks selected Cody Barton out of Utah with the No. 88 selection in the 2019 NFL Draft. Barton notched a career-high 37 combined tackles in 2021, but has seen his role increasing with the team throughout OTAs and minicamp.
Brent Stecker of Seattle Sports 710AM pegs Barton as a player to watch for the Seahawks this season.
