Seahawks Current Depth Chart

This whole competition thing Uncle Pete preaches is nice and all but thus far into training camp it seems that theme is relegated mostly to guys filling out the depth chart more than it applies to starters. In fact, I think the most compelling position battle will be among the unproven kickers and I don’t think it can be argued there are really any starting positions “up for grabs” either. Correct me if I am wrong of course but unless someone like Antonio Cromartie gets snatched up or Richard Sherman/Alan Branch just kill it and beat out Thurmond/Cole I don’t see much shuffling amongst the starters.

What compels me to do an “in training camp” depth chart was doing research for an article and noticing there are not a ton of current depth charts out there, I know the roster but not where all the pieces fall right off the top of my head and I got deservedly called out for leaving a backup defensive lineman out of an article. Pete sure likes his roster turnover, so I thought I would do the 12th Man justice and make one based on the current roster

Rookies, undrafted free agent rookies, and free agents are included. Some of the reserves look bare, but there are still free agents to be signed and this will be updated accordingly.
