The Seahawk’s secondary receives an oddly low ranking from pro football focus
The Seattle Seahawks have had the best DB rooms in football for many years. Going into the 2022 season, we think that could finally change. Equipped with serious talent in terms of safety, plugging their holes in the room and slots in the cornerback, we think this year could be one of the strongest secondary in the entire NFL.
Not everyone agrees. According to Pro Football Focus, this will actually be the worst in football. The PFF ranks Seattle 30th in their secondary rankings. Only the Bears and Texans were put down.
“This is the most easily seen cornerback group on paper in the NFL. And not to oppose crimes. With some silver lining, 2021 fourth-rounder Trey Brown outperformed even in limited game time. With 162 coverage snaps as a rookie, he only caught eight catches on 17 goals from 75 yards while playing from the outside. ”
Although we like PFFs and generally believe in their analysis, it seems very low. Brown will start from the outside cornerback against Sydney Jones, with slots Justin Coleman and Jamal Adams and Quandre Diggs at the back end.
Diggs and Adams can be expensive, but they represent what could be the best starting pair in the game. Coleman, meanwhile, is one of the best nickel defenders in the league, and both Brown and Jones played great football last season. Behind them on this depth chart from Kobe Bryant and Tariq Woolen are also two very promising losers, both of whom could become legal stars.
The PFF deserves to keep the Ravens at the top of their list, but it would be wrong to put these Seahawks below the secondary number 15. Let’s repeat this in November.
