Defensive end Chris Clemons, cornerback Marcus Trufant and free safety Earl Thomas have been named to the All-NFC West team, as selected by ESPN divisional blogger Mike Sando.
These three also represent a cross-section of a Seahawks team that was in transition during the 2010 season, as Clemons was added in a trade with the Eagles, Trufant is one of seven players remaining from the 2005 Super Bowl team and Thomas was a first-round draft choice.
Clemons recorded a career-best 11 sacks, while Thomas tied the franchise rookie record with five interceptions and finished fifth on the team with 71 tackles. Trufant was third on the team with 80 tackles and also recovered two fumbles.

The Seahawks had no one selected to his All-NFC West offensive team, which you can see here.
