It was actually the strength of Seattle's defense last season, even with Jamal Adams suffering a torn quad tendon in Week 1. The Seahawks made it a lot stronger by adding safety Julian Love (two years, $12 million) in free agency, then drafting cornerback Devon Witherspoon with the No. 5 overall pick.
Witherspoon and Tariq Woolen give the Seahawks maybe the NFL's best young cornerback tandem. Love -- whom they view as an upgrade over Ryan Neal -- gives them the ability to play with three safeties and some insurance in case Adams isn't ready by Week 1. With Quandre Diggs coming off back-to-back Pro Bowl seasons, this looks like Seattle's best secondary since the LOB days.

Hype man: Did you see how well John Schneider and Pete Carroll nailed our draft class last year? This year's class could be half as good and still put us over the top in a down conference. Super Bowl, here we come.
Devon Downer: Sure, Devon Witherspoon is fun to watch and brings a nasty energy to the secondary, but did we really use the No. 5 overall pick on an undersized senior when that profile has no recent precedent for success near the top of the draft?
