2012 NFL Power Rankings: Seahawks Move Up One Spot To 23rd

The NFL landscape for 2012 has taken much of it's shape already with the draft and much of the free agent signings already under wraps. But who's going to the be top dog heading into this season? Well, SB Nation's very own Joel Thorman has been trying to figure that out with his latest installment of his NFL Power Rankings.

Unfortunately for Seattle Thorman doesn't have a lot of faith at the moment, with a big question mark at the quarterback position his number one concern for this team moving forward.

Here is Joel Thorman with the commentary:

23. Seattle Seahawks (7-9, LW: 24): With the 49ers, the NFC West isn't so easy anymore. Matt Flynn needs to play like he did in his only two career starts, but do it for 16 games.

Seattle moved up a spot from the last rankings, so that's saying something.

With three of of the four teams in the NFC West in the bottom 1/3 of the league someone is going to have to step up and challenge the 49ers for supremacy in the division. The Seahawks certainly have some talent, but the question will be can Pete Carroll put it all together enough to garner a playoff spot.
