After struggling to stay healthy over the past two seasons, cornerback Walter Thurmond isn’t a lock to make the Seahawks final roster, according to MyNorthWest.com.
Thurmond is someone who many have overlooked after injuries largely derailed his past two seasons. But he feels the best he has in two years, and he was one of the most impressive players during the Seahawks offseason workouts. At 5 feet 11, he’s not as tall as either of Seattle’s starting cornerbacks, but his wingspan is equal to that of the 6-3 Sherman. Thurmond is hardly guaranteed a spot on the team, and he must stay healthy, but given his performance this offseason, he is poised not only make the team, but was so explosive coaches were scrambling for ways to get him involved.
If Thurmond goes down with an injury during the preseason that will keep him out for an extended period of time, then I don’t think he’ll make the Seahawks roster.
