Can the Seahawks improve their pass rush after losing Frank Clark?
Last season the Seahawks defensive line dropped to 26th in the NFL in terms of pass rush productivity, as measured by Pro Football Focus. Considering they were 1st and 3rd in their two Super Bowl seasons, it seems to measure up to how we felt about the defensive line in those seasons. Considering they lost Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril and Sheldon Richardson after the 2017 season, a drop was expected, but to get back to a top unit on the defensive line they're going to need to see improvements.
While it's tough to project an improvement with the loss of Frank Clark, there are a number of players on the roster who have finished in the top 100 in terms of pass rush productivity in past seasons. We talk about the players who need to maintain their past efforts, return to previous form or develop as young talent to get the Seahawks back among the top defensive lines in the NFL.
