In 2013, Byron Maxwell stepped up on defense to fill in for the suspended Brandon Browner. Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner, and Richard Sherman are just a few from 2012. In 2014, expect a breakout year from one of Seattle’s 4th round draft picks.
Cassius Marsh is a player that comes into Seattle with tremendous talent. Cassius Marsh is comparable to Michael Bennett in the way that he can play both inside and outside as a pass rusher. Cassius also does MMA training, so he works very well with using his hands to shed blockers. Looking at Cassius’ tape just shows that there is something special about him.
While Marsh weighed in at 252 pounds at the NFL Combine, it is told that Marsh is going to gain 20+ pounds to be more versatile along the defensive line. Expect Marsh to fill in for the spots left open by the departure of Chris Clemons and Red Bryant.
Other Players To Look Out For:
Dion Bailey, Safety
I have heard that the undrafted rookie out of USC impressed in OTAs and the Rookie Minicamp. Bailey is a player that fits into the mold of the L.O.B.. Bailey is a hard-hitting player that started out at USC at linebacker, but later moved to safety.
Christine Michael, Running back
Michael was Seattle’s 2nd-round pick in 2013, but didn’t play much in 2013. During OTAs, Michael got a majority of the carries due to Marshawn Lynch’s absence. He was expected to be Lynch’s successor, which could happen sooner than later.
