Seahawks could still make moves at QB, WR and safety

The Seattle Seahawks trimmed their roster down to 53 players Saturday. Here's a position-by-position look at where things currently stand and what might happen next.

Quarterbacks (2): Russell Wilson, Trevone Boykin.

I'm not convinced the Seahawks are finished here. Let's see whether they make a move to add a veteran in the next 48 hours or if Pete Carroll is willing to go with Boykin, a rookie undrafted free agent, as Wilson's backup in Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins.

Running backs (4): Thomas Rawls, Christine Michael, C.J. Prosise, Alex Collins.

The Seahawks don't currently have a fullback on the roster, but that could change. Rawls and Michael will be the primary ball-carriers. Prosise is on track to be the third-down back, and Collins adds depth. Troymaine Pope had a nice preseason but didn't make the cut. He could be a practice squad option.

Wide receivers (5): Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, Tyler Lockett, Paul Richardson, Tanner McEvoy.

McEvoy has played wide receiver, tight end and safety. He's dealing with a groin injury but still made the cut. This is another area where the Seahawks could potentially add a player and try to sneak McEvoy onto the practice squad.

Tight end (4): Jimmy Graham, Luke Willson, Nick Vannett, Brandon Williams.

Graham and Vannett are question marks for Week 1. Willson has been playing with the first team all summer. Williams showed up on special teams and played his way onto the roster.

Offensive line (9): Bradley Sowell, Mark Glowinski, Justin Britt, Germain Ifedi, Garry Gilliam, J'Marcus Webb, Rees Odhiambo, Joey Hunt, George Fant.

The Seahawks are very young at this spot. Four of the nine players -- Ifedi, Odhiambo, Hunt and Fant -- are rookies. Glowinski is a second-year player.

Fant, an undrafted free agent, looks like a project. He'll almost certainly be inactive on gamedays. Hunt is the backup center. Webb and Odhiambo provide guard/tackle versatility. Webb is probably the favorite to be an active backup on gamedays.

Defensive line (8): Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril, Ahtyba Rubin, Jarran Reed, Tony McDaniel, Frank Clark, Quinton Jefferson, Justin Hamilton.

The big news here was that Jordan Hill got cut and the team opted to go with Hamilton. Reed (toe) is expected to start at nose tackle when healthy. McDaniel, who was jobless a month ago, will likely start if Reed misses Week 1.

The Seahawks are counting on Clark to provide pass rush in sub packages, and Jefferson has shown steady improvement throughout the summer.

Linebacker (6): Bobby Wagner, K.J. Wright, Mike Morgan, Cassius Marsh, Brock Coyle, Kevin Pierre-Louis.

Morgan is expected to be the starting SAM linebacker. Marsh has versatility as a SAM or defensive end, and he's a standout special teams player.

Eric Pinkins had a chance to win the starting SAM job when camp started, but he disappointed and ended up getting cut.

Cornerback (5): Richard Sherman, Jeremy Lane, DeShawn Shead, Tharold Simon, DeAndre Elliott.

Elliott was probably the biggest surprise to make the roster. An undrafted free agent out of Colorado State, he beat out 2015 fifth-round pick Tye Smith and veteran Marcus Burley.

Lane may start, but he's likely to move inside in nickel. Shead will then take over duties at right cornerback.

Safety (7): Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, Kelcie McCray, Steven Terrell, Tyvis Powell, Dewey McDonald, L.J. McCray.

The Seahawks' decision to trade for L.J. McCray and McDonald was a surprise, and it'll be interesting to hear their reasoning. Perhaps it was simply a special teams move. Or maybe they plan on getting Kelcie McCray more snaps in sub packages.

Twelve defensive backs is a high number, so they certainly could make some tweaks here in the next 48 hours.

Specialists (3): Steven Hauschka, Jon Ryan, Nolan Frese.

They seem to want Frese to be the long snapper. He was battling an injury earlier in the preseason but played well in the finale.
