Seahawks safety Lano Hill has struggled to stay on the field in his brief three-year career in the NFL. Now that he’s finally healthy, though, he’s part of a defense that features some of the most talent it’s had in years.

Included among that talent is star pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney, whose contributions to the defense have been evident since he first arrived in Seattle.

“I mean, you could see that from Jadeveon Clowney. You could see it, the sparks,” Hill told 710 ESPN Seattle’s Danny, Dave and Moore.

Who will star for the Seahawks in Week 3?

Even with established talent like Clowney on the field, there are still plenty of harder-to-recognize names that will soon form the foundation of the team’s defense in years to come.

“I mean, our personality as a unit may still be young, but we’re going to go out there, we’re going to do our job, and we’re going to have to fun doing it,” described Hill.

It’s not just the defense that’s flashed in the first two games of the season, either. Tight end Will Dissly caught a pair of touchdowns against the Steelers, something that didn’t surprise Hill in the slightest.

“When the offense is on the field, the guy I watch is Will (Dissly),” he noted.

Hill, Clowney, Dissly, and the rest of the surging Seahawks will look to continue their early run of success this Sunday at home against the visiting New Orleans Saints.
