Aaron Curry has the physical ability, but can he prove to have the mental makeup of a NFL star?

The Seahawks became the first team in history to enter the playoffs with a sub .500 record in 2010, going 7-9 en route to the NFC West title. Their unorthodox division title drew a variety of jabs and doubt from national pundits, but the Seahawks responded with a home-playoff victory over New Orleans and a 1-1 playoff record.

They appeared to come together as a program and execute at a higher level for the majority of the win-or-go-home stretch to end the season, a 2-1 record during that span.

Seattle has 27 players from its final 53-man roster that played in the Chicago loss or had been placed on IR not under contract into next season.

Furthermore, Pete Carroll is intent on “owning” the division and proving 2010 was no fluke.

For the team to successfully defend their title and attempt to elevate the program to the next level, a group of players will need to prove themselves valuable to the team as the core for the future.

That group is currently in flux, a variety of players facing the opportunity to prove they're capable of placing themselves among that group in 2011, others are fighting to keep their spot among the main contributors.

Here are nine players that will be under the spotlight next season, hoping to prove they can be a core contributor for the Seahawks in 2011 and beyond.
