Seahawks: A Look at the Competition in the NFC West
The Seahawks appear loaded again and poised to make the playoffs for the sixth straight year in 2017. How much competition will they face in their division?

Seahawks 2017 position previews: All eyes on Jimmy Graham -
When the Seattle Seahawks begin training camp on July 30 they're going to do with the goal of seeing how well guys compete against one another for jobs. Yes, Seattle signed undrafted free agent Tyrone Swoopes, brought in Steve Donatell, re-signed Luke Willson and still have second-year tight end Nick Vannett, but the face of this unit is clear: Acquiring a pass-catching machine like Graham and zeroing in on his blocking ability isn't all that different from buying a Mercedes Benz and bragging about the glove compartment.  Swoopes, a quarterback at the University of Texas, is an interesting prospect because of his size (6-foot-4, 254 pounds), knowledge of an offense, but being a running QB for the Longhorns can only help so much with a transition to catching passes for the Seahawks.  The other is Algernon Brown, an undrafted rookie who played running back until his final season at BYU.  Another name to watch is former USC running back Tre Madden, who is listed as a tailback right now but probably only has a chance to make the team as a fullback.  Seattle is known to play musical chairs with its fullbacks during the offseason, so expect some shuffling there throughout training camp and the preseason.
