Here is where key Seattle players rank in this week’s position ratings from Pro Football Focus:
— QB Russell Wilson is 27th, and has a minus-2.7 rating in passing as the main thing bringing his ranking down.
— RB Marshawn Lynch is second among tailbacks and averaging 2.9 yards after contact, tied for fifth.
— FB Derrick Coleman is seventh.
— Percy Harvin is Seattle’s highest-rated receiver at 35th with Jermaine Kearse at 70 and Doug Baldwin 86th among 111 total. Baldwin is hurt by what PFF has judged as two drops so far.
— Zach Miller is 34th among 57 tight ends due mostly to a minus-1.7 rating for penalties, highest of any tight end.
— Max Unger is third among centers.
— James Carpenter is 21st at guard with J.R. Sweezy 48th out of 69 total.
— Justin Britt is 21st and Russell Okung 30th out of 66 offensive tackles.
— Seattle’s best rated overall position is 4-3 defensive end where Michael Bennett is second and Cliff Avril fourth. Bruce Irvin checks in at 18th and O’Brien Schofield 22nd out of 53 total (interestingly, coming in at 53rd and last is former Seahawk Chris Clemons, now with Jacksonville).
— Seattle not rated quite as well on the interior of its line as Tony McDaniel is 24th at defensive tackle, Jordan Hill 61st and Brandon Mebane 63rd out of 68 total.
— Bobby Wagner is No. 8 at middle linebacker.
— K.J. Wright and Malcolm Smith are tied for 25th among 4-3 outside linebackers, out of 28 total. And probably indicative of their struggles against the Chargers, Smith and Wright have the two worst ratings for pass coverage among 4-3 OLBs.
— At corner, Richard Sherman is 31st with Marcus Burley at 48 and Byron Maxwell 54th. By PFF’s stats, Sherman has been thrown at six times in 143 snaps, with four caught.
— Earl Thomas is 17th at safety and Kam Chancellor 59th out of 73 total. Hurting Chancellor is that, by PFF’s stats, he has seven missed tackles, most of any safety in the NFL.
