My hope, D-Line...the probable, Linebacker
While it remains unclear whether or not Dunbar will be suspended by the NFL, he will suit up for the Seahawks in 2020. And so will Jamal Adams, giving the coaching staff far greater flexibility schematically with a dramatically upgraded secondary.

After posting one of the best rookie seasons by a receiver in franchise history and setting an NFL record for single game receiving yardage in the postseason, Metcalf isn't satisfied and believes he has much left to prove in 2020.
K.J. Wright has starred at the WILL position for nine years and played some of his best football in 2019. But the arrival of Jordyn Brooks could lead to a positional shakeup in the middle of Seattle's defense moving forward.
Even if Dunbar still receives a suspension - which is entirely possible given the NFL's track record - it seems likely he will wear a Seahawks uniform at some point in 2020, potentially giving them one of the best and most improved secondaries in the league.
While the NFL has proven in the past it could still drop the hammer on Dunbar after the league's own internal investigations, Friday's revelation should open the door for the cornerback to play for the Seahawks in 2020.
Once a bulldozing All-Pro fullback, Weaver has faced non-stop obstacles since accepting his first head coaching job earlier this year. But after making it in the NFL undrafted out of Carson-Newman College and coping with a career-ending injury, he's built to handle adversity.
As has been speculated for months, the Seahawks would have great interest in re-signing Gordon if his suspension is lifted. But for now, they have to play the waiting game as the receiver awaits a verdict on a possible reinstatement and Brown remains an option.
Following an impressive rookie season, coach Pete Carroll is confident Metcalf will be able to take a major step forward from a development standpoint and lean on his exceptional mentality for another successful campaign.
Though Carroll called out national leadership for finding excuses when it came to handling to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Carroll couldn't have asked for a better first week of training camp with the Seahawks having zero positive tests.
