With the start of the 2021 regular season still a couple of months away, media outlets are continuing their countdowns of the best players and positions groups to date.

Pro Football Focus recently issued its rankings of the league’s best linebackers units and the Seahawks landed at No. 2 overall.

“If the Seahawks still had K.J. Wright, they would comfortably field the NFL’s best linebacker unit, but with Wright still a free agent, this unit is carried by Bobby Wagner,” writes Sam Monson. “With the team deteriorating around him, Wagner has been put in ever-tougher positions, but he still has a top-five overall PFF grade over the past two seasons. He recorded 20 total pressures, 53 defensive stops and seven pass breakups in 2020.

“Jordyn Brooks is a work in progress, but we saw flashes of what he’s capable of as a rookie last year.”

Seattle has not closed the door completely on a reunion with Wright, but the Seahawks have to prepare without him for now.

Still, only one group of linebackers scored higher than Seattle’s . . . the division-rival 49ers.
