Wednesday Round-Up: Seahawks Safeties Among NFL's Scariest Position Groups

A daily link round-up of what's "out there" about the Seattle Seahawks.

Good morning, 12s. 

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, June 1 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Thomas, Chancellor Make Up One Of NFL's Most-Feared Units

Former NFL defensive back and scout turned NFL.com media analyst Bucky Brooks took a look at every position group in the League to come up with a list of the 10 most-feared units in the game today. The Seahawks' starting safety tandem of Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor, who were drafted to Seattle in 2010, come in at No. 4 on his list, with Brooks writing: 

These core members of the "Legion of Boom" discourage opponents from working the middle of the field with their hard-hitting ways and superb ball skills. Earl Thomas is a playmaking center fielder with outstanding instincts, awareness and anticipation. He scares quarterbacks with his ability to jump routes and snag interceptions on tips or overthrows in his area. Kam Chancellor is the designated enforcer with a knack for delivering teeth-rattling shots to runners in the hole and receivers venturing between the hashes.

The three position groups Brooks puts in front of Seattle's safeties? That'd be the Carolina Panthers linebacking corps, the Denver Broncos' defensive backs, and the Dallas Cowboys' offensive line.
