(39) Justin Britt, G – Went from starting right tackle to starting left guard to “just don’t be terrible” in two months. Has the mental makeup and grit to improve but needs to figure it out quickly with Aaron Donald calling on him in Week 1.

(38) Ricardo Lockette, WR – Thought this would be the year he gets beaten out. Would have if not for P-Rich injury. Hopefully continues to excel on special teams as a gunner.

(37) Cary Williams, CB – Is struggling with the Seattle ‘step-kick’ style of press-man CB play. Needs to figure it out quickly for his own sake and the team’s. Three-year contract may actually end up being a one-year deal and another lesson in the pitfalls of mid-level free agency.

(36) Alvin Bailey, T/G – Went from starting left guard to reliable backup left tackle to Cable’s doghouse in two months.  Seems to have picked it up the last couple weeks, but that only emphasizes Seattle’s frustration in his inconsistent play.

(35) Marcus Burley, CB – Nickel/Slot CB is a totally different animal than the outside position, and while Burley’s quickness and aggressiveness fit well there, he lacks the length the team prefers at CB. Arm length be damned, he’s a better football player than Will Blackmon and earned his place on the roster.
