Seahawks release updated depth chart

New, comments
Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks released an updated depth chart for the beginning of the season. It's unclear how much input the team's coaches give the PR department when these depth charts get put together, but I think there's at least a little bit of instruction there, especially when it comes to special teams (Earl Thomas is the punt returner!). Either way -- here's what the team's website says:

OFFENSE:

POS FIRST SECOND THIRD OTHER
WR1 Doug Baldwin Ricardo Lockette Paul Richardson Kevin Norwood
LT Russell Okung Alvin Bailey Garry Gilliam
LG James Carpenter Stephen Schilling
C Max Unger Lemuel Jeanpierre
RG J.R. Sweezy Stephen Schilling
RT Justin Britt Alvin Bailey Garry Gilliam
TE Zach Miller Luke Willson Cooper Helfet
WR2 Percy Harvin Jermaine Kearse Phil Bates
QB Russell Wilson Tarvaris Jackson
FB Derrick Coleman
RB Marshawn Lynch Robert Turbin Christine Michael

Notes:

Robert Turbin remains apparently entrenched as the backup running back. Alvin Bailey is the backup at both right and left tackle, a key role. Stephen Schilling is listed as the backup guard, both on the left and right. Nothing else really too noteworthy.

DEFENSE:

POS FIRST SECOND THIRD OTHER
LDE Michael Bennett Greg Scruggs Cassius Marsh
LDT Tony McDaniel Kevin Williams
RDT Brandon Mebane Jordan Hill
RDE Cliff Avril O'Brien Schofield
LOLB Mike Morgan Bruce Irvin
MLB Bobby Wagner Brock Coyle
ROLB K.J. Wright Malcolm Smith Kevin Pierre-Louis
LCB Richard Sherman Jeremy Lane
RCB Byron Maxwell Tharold Simon Marcus Burley
SS Kam Chancellor Jeron Johnson
FS Earl Thomas DeShawn Shead

Notes:

Greg Scruggs is listed as an end, like Michael Bennett, but will surely be used inside in nickel situations. Brock Coyle comes in as the backup at the middle linebacker position, and right now, Mike Morgan is listed ahead of Bruce Irvin at the strongside. It will be interesting if this stays the same once Bruce gets healthy.

Special Teams:

POS FIRST SECOND THIRD OTHER
K Steven Hauschka
P Jon Ryan
H Jon Ryan
PR Earl Thomas Richard Sherman Paul Richardson
KR Percy Harvin Doug Baldwin
LS Clint Gresham Zach Miller

Notes:

Earl Thomas comes in as the number one punt returner. Here we go. Richard Sherman, weirdly enough, in as the second option, and Paul Richardson third. Doug Baldwin and Percy Harvin will likely rotate returning kicks. Zach Miller is the backup long snapper.
