2009 Seahawks 53-man roster

Final prediction for the 2009 Seahawks 53-man roster. This will likely be off by a player or two, but I couldn't leave either Courtney Taylor or Ben Obomanu off the list at WR. The same goes for Michael Bennett and Nick Reed on the DL. DT Craig Terrill probably makes the team, but I couldn't bring myself to leave off any of those any of those four. Let's hope Ruskell and company agree.

OT Kyle Williams is safe for now, but could lose his spot to a veteran from another team, if someone is cut or a team is willing to make a trade for K Brandon Coutu.

Note: After seeing Peter King's comment regarding Tim Ruskell keeping the entire draft class, I have to assume that SS Courtney Greene will make the team. That could be at the cost of SS CJ Wallace. However, it's equally likely that Marcus Trufant will begin the year on the PUP, and Jordan Babineaux will be asked to fill in at corner if he is needed before Trufant is eligible to return.
