Seahawks 2021 Awards: Defensive Player of the Year

Overcoming a rough start for the unit as a whole, several players starred for a Seattle defense that made great strides in 2021. Who deserves Defensive Player of the Year honors?

Following a 38-30 win over the Cardinals at State Farm Stadium, the Seahawks have officially transitioned into offseason mode after a disappointing 7-10 campaign.

While the franchise didn't live up to lofty expectations coming off of an NFC West title and a 12-win season in 2020, several players still starred in all three phases for Seattle. Over the next two weeks, the Seahawk Maven writing staff will be naming their selections for end of season awards, including most valuable player, most improved, assistant coach of the year, and many more.

Continuing our awards showcase, who deserves the honor as Seattle's Defensive Player of the Year for 2021? Our panel makes their selections:
