Legion of Boom dominated in run stops last season
The powerful Seattle Seahawks defense has once again drawn rave reviews.
In a recent survey done by Pro Football Focus, five NFL cornerbacks tallied 10 or more run stops last season. Run stops measure how often a player records a tackle that results in a defensive stop.
Legion of Boom members DeShawn Shead, Jeremy Lane and Richard Sherman each compiled over 10 run stops in 2016 to capture three of the five spots on Pro Football Focus’ list.
Another Seahawks cornerback to keep an eye on this season is the team’s 2017 draft pick, Shaquill Griffin.
Griffin, who was taken during the third round of the NFL Draft out of University of Central Florida, will be given the chance to compete for a starting spot at right cornerback opposite of Sherman this upcoming season.
He could certainly add to the Legion of Boom’s successful run stop game in 2017 and keep the team in the conversation as one of the NFL’s best for years to come.
Pro Football Focus has yet to release a complete list on its website showing which other cornerbacks stacked up against the Seahawks.
