And we’re bringing you a look at the best and worst defensive backs in the league.
Last year, the Seahawks made the playoffs, so let’s get into the meat of this series.
Here’s a look back at some of the top and worst offensive line players in the National Football League: Seattle Seahawks – 1.
Michael Bennett, LT, Seattle Seahawks (1)Michael Bennett was the best offensive lineman in the entire league last year, and he’s one of the best as well.
He’s one-and-done for Seattle.
The Seahawks drafted Bennett in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft, and his first year in Seattle was nothing short of a disaster.
The former All-Pro left the team after just two games and never played again.
He was never healthy, and by the time he was finally healthy, he was barely recognizable as a Seahawks offensive lineman.
Bennett is a beast.
He has the most impressive combination of length, strength, and quickness in the game.
He can block and win multiple blockers, as well as be a force on the run.
Bennett can win over every defender in the box and is an absolute nightmare to tackle.
He is a force in the run game and is one of only four offensive linemen in the history of the NFL to lead the league in sacks.
This is a real problem for Seattle, as they rank third in the NFC in run defense.
They were actually ranked fifth in run-defense DVOA last year and have been one of those teams that struggles to stop the run even with the help of a top pass-rusher like Clay Matthews.
The Seattle Seahawks are the worst team in the AFC West.
They lost some of their stars this offseason, but the biggest losses were on defense.
The loss of Cliff Avril, and the loss of Michael Bennett have made the Seahawks’ defense look worse.
That’s not to say they aren’t talented, or that Bennett is the problem.
Bennett had a very good season in 2014, though he was one of a handful of players to miss the entire season with injuries.
Bennett was only 31 years old, and there’s no question he’s a very talented offensive lineman who’s probably not going to make the same mistakes Bennett did in 2014.
He’ll be a top-five offensive lineman for years to come.
If the Seahawks are to win a Super Bowl, Bennett will have to be better.
Andrew Whitworth, DT, Green Bay Packers (2)Andrew Whitworth is the best pass-rushing defensive tackle in the NBA, and that’s not even counting the one-man run game he had in the postseason.
Whitworth had a great season last year for the Packers, recording 13.5 sacks.
He led the NFL in sacks, and if you were to only include sacks by the other top defensive tackles, Whitworth would lead the pack with 15.5.
The biggest concern for Whitworth was his health.
Whitmore was plagued by knee and hamstring injuries in 2014 and didn’t return to the field until Week 5.
He played just six games last year.
He didn’t get any playing time in the regular season, and didn
