Seaside Bonus: Updates on Seattle's 13 wide receivers
Pete Carroll was very enthused with Cody Thompson, saying he had a great two weeks of practice. The only way Penny Hart, or Cody Thompson makes Seattle together on the opening day roster is the Hawks keep six receivers, they did do that in 2020. I don't see both making unless the injury bug bites. Cody Thompson has some interesting numbers. He had a very pedestrian high 4.5s in the 40, but he turns around and shows power with a 38.5 vertical does he have really long arms, His 3 cone drill wasn't bad either. His best shot is being a clean blocker while running in the offense, and on Kick and punt returns
I apologize if my spelling is bad Marquise Goodwin is almost a lock. He had adequate numbers with Chicago who had a poor offense last year. Pete thinks he has the fastest Seahawk team he has coached. This is why Pete was somewhat irritated with Bo Melton and Dereke Young having sore hamstrings. He was more forgiving of Dee Eskridge. I believe that the last OTA was the only practice he missed, I think I am right, if not let me know. Skipper Joe is right that Eskridge makes the team, but if he doesn't have a good year that could be it. I would find this such a let down as I wrote the Skipper last year that the Hawks should take Eskridge with their first pick in round 2, and bye God they did. Side bar I didn't know Crede Humphrey would still be available at the same time. I am still convinced that Eskridge will have a 500 yard 4 or 5 touchdown season, maybe better. Tyler is a shining Gem, and finally not referred to as a gadget player. Three outstanding season in a row will do that to even the laziest of national pundits. Last but not least John/Pete no screwing around sign DK as a top 5 receiver and do it before camp. The Great man mountain is putting up Hall of Fame numbers. The only two who edged DK out for the best first 3 years are, Jerry Rice and Randy Moss. The scary part for the league, DK is still learning how to play receiver. Old Miss criminally under used DK and AJ both of them running very stunted route trees. Thanks for your time, it's June and I am looking for all things that will be good for the Hawks. Victoria Chris
When did John Ursua get cut? He had some terrible timing on that knee injury but always looked promising in preseason games. A lot of receivers do though. Remember Tanner McEvoy? There was another who Richard Sherman got ill about us cutting who never panned out in the league.
DK, Lockett and Eskridge are in, and I think Swain keeps his spot unless Goodwin is obviously better. That really only leaves a place for one or two more and that likely comes down to special teams contribution. Do you think they would roster both Swain and Goodwin?
Kevin Kassis is an extreme darkhorse but i've never seen so many over the shoulder catches by a receiver. Quite crisp cuts too. Go Kevin.
