Seahawks 2017 position previews: A loaded defensive line -
Seattle's defensive front features a balance of up-and-coming young players and seasoned veterans, which is why it remains a strength of one of the league's top teams.. Doug Baldwin seems a bit undersized to be a defensive line, but watching him practice with the unit during organized team activities, you can't help but notice his feather-light footwork and knack for hand-to-hand combat.  [...] while the Pro Bowl wide receiver believes he'd make a decent 3-technique pass-rusher, Seattle is already strong on the defensive line.  For starters, the defensive line may very well have the Seahawks' best player on it in Michael Bennett, a title he arguably claim because of his production and ability to put a quarterback on his butt from any position, and his potential to completely destroy a running back just as viciously.  Ahtyba Rubin and Jarran Reed can if nothing else be serviceable pieces, and if not, the Seahawks wisely addressed that position in the most recent draft, spending a second-round pick on Malik McDowell and a third-round selection on Nazair Jones.  The 2015 second-round pick had 10 sacks in his sophomore campaign, forecasting a promising 2017 season that may make him the next Seattle Seahawks draft star (Tyler Lockett may have an argument, but this team is still built around the defense).  Seattle still has a quality talent in Cassius Marsh and signed undrafed free agent Jeremy Liggins, who has a chance to make the 53-man roster as a defensive tackle, filling a DL spot vacated by injured linemen Dion Jordan -- he had another knee procedure performed after being acquired this offseason as a free agent -- and Quinton Jefferson.
