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:
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.
|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|
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.
|PR||Earl Thomas||Richard Sherman||Paul Richardson|
|KR||Percy Harvin||Doug Baldwin|
|LS||Clint Gresham||Zach Miller||
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.
