The Seattle Seahawks went 11-5 last season, then beat the Philadelphia Eagles in the Wild Card Round before losing to the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round.

The Seahawks will be trying to usurp the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC West next season, then get over the hump in the playoffs and get back to the Super Bowl. Those won’t be easy tasks, but quarterback Russell Wilson is always a nice place to start.

If the Seahawks are indeed going to take a significant step as a team next season, these three players taking the next step in their own development will be very important.
