Seahawks on tape: Cody Barton is the ideal modern inside linebacker

Thank goodness the Seattle Seahawks drafted Cody Barton in round 3 with the 88th selection.

Seattle’s linebacker depth has been thin for a while—’member Brock Coyle? But heading into the 2019 season it’s shaping up to be one of the deepest units in the NFL. K.J. Wright has been extended and is reportedly fully healthy. Shaquem Griffin is in his second-year, pursuit issues hopefully addressed. Mychal Kendricks has been added for another season and might be free. Heck, talented SAM backer Barkevious Mingo might be cut after the cheap addition of Cassius Marsh at the same position.
