  • Luuuuuuuuuke Willson.

    This is his year to shine, and going into next season we will need to pick between him and Jimmy to play along side Vannett going into 2017.

    I will go with Paul Richardson though. I think he will surprise some people with his impact.

  • I'm going to go with Tyler Lockett. I think the expectations are high but I think he can become the 2nd best player on our Offense behind Russ. Lockett has not stopped getting better and working next to Doug, Jermaine, and Richardson will only help him hone his craft.

    Lockett could become one of the best WR's in this league. During the draft process I thought best case he would be a #2 receiver in this league like Randall Cobb. With the way the NFL is now days it doesn't matter which WR position you play if you can get open and catch the ball well, you will do big things and Lockett can do both at an elite level. He has the best feet of any WR I have ever watched and is only going to get better.

    If Russ starts throwing 35+ times a game Lockett could put up 90-100 catch season.

  • Paul Richardson is going to kill it. With the focus on Wilson, Rawls/C Mike, Baldwin, Lockett and Graham (when he gets back), Richardson is going to have a lot of favorable one-on-one match-ups against inferior coverage guys.

  • I'm going with Tony McDaniel. He steps up in the DL rotation and heavily contributes to stopping the run. I think the vet still has a little left in the tank.

  • So far Britt and Cmike are already deserving of that award and I'm going to add Jermaine Kearse to that list as well.

    Who is our primary weapon in the pass game? A healthy Graham. And then? Baldwin. And then? Lockett.

    Kearse will be on the field with these three guys quite a lot this season. He's going to get 1v1s with the worst DBs of the opposing teams more times than not.

    It isn't as simple as that though otherwise every worst receiver on the field could put up amazing numbers. This lies in the fact how Jermaine takes advantage of this all the time.

    Last season when Graham was down Kearse was our savior in the short passing game and was able to burn some unsuspecting CBs for big gains and clutch plays.

    Now Lockett will be a lot more respected and Graham will be back. Just imagine how many times Kearse will be open and force a big gain.

  • I'm sticking with a current theme and saying Richardson. Probably not enough targets for him to blow up statistically but he is going to be a contributor and change the outcome of games with his speed. Expect a bunch of timely catches and a few explosive plays mixed in. The idea of Richardson and Lockett driving teams nuts with their speed will also open things up for the middle of the field and even the running game.

    Prosise is my second pick. Similar in that not a ton of stats but timely usage in key moments.

  • Nothing wrong with Bevell's achievement progression. He works well in Pete's system and the prowess of the squad on the offensive side of the ball is among the league's best. I expect that to continue. Bradley Sowell hopefully takes the bull by the horns to give Russ the time he needs.

  • I'll say Jarran Reed. We all know he has the potential to be a great run stopper, but questions remain as to whether he can push the pocket back on passing downs. Can he create pressure up the middle, and even get to 1/2 a dozen sacks? I say yes, and overachieves expectations. Even if he has no sacks, but can create a push to disrupt timing, or take on double teams to allow others to chase down QB's.....it will be a wildly successful rookie campaign. :irishdrinkers:

  • I think it's really hard on this team to point to an over achiever, because of the high ceilings each of our guys possess. When I think of over achiever I think of a guy who plays better than his ability, and we don't have many guys whose ability isn't through the roof.

    Under those qualifications and based on opportunity, I'm going to pick Bradley Sowell on offense and Cassius Marsh on defense as two guys who have the best chance to produce over their heads.

  • I'm so very impressed with Quinton Jefferson.

    If a round five rookie can be part of the regular rotation and give consistent production, I will call it an overachievement. Considering Jordan Hill has packed his bags, QJ is half way there. Big statement.

    I will also add that I have read comments from reputable .net folks that suggest Jefferson is primarily a run stuffer that needs much development as a pass rusher. I couldn't disagree more based on my preseason observations. *See link below* In fact, I believe he is more diverse than Jordan Hill ever was and we will see him replace Hill's role in all of the passing down sub packages. In other words, provide interior pressure on passing downs, but unlike Hill, strong enough to move around and hold up against the run in early down situations.

    He reminds me very much of youthful Michael Bennett and I can easily envision him as a three down player with situational position switches up and down the line.

    I'm telling ya. I have watched this game for decades and I see something very special in QJ. I think he gets extended with a lucrative contract in four years. Ponder that in comparison to players like Bruce Irvin, James Carpenter, or Golden Tate. Players that were allowed to seek more money elsewhere when their rookie deal expired. This.....is how good I think QJ is going to be.

    **On edit: from this Field Gulls link dated May 30 http://www.fieldgulls.com/2016/5/30/118 ... ep-defense

    Bonus Impact Rookie: Quinton Jefferson

    Don't get me wrong, Jarran Reed is going to come into Seattle and start week one, helping the defensive line not miss a beat following Mebane's departure. Jefferson, however, does have an interesting season ahead of him. Touted as very raw by many draft experts, I think Pete Carroll and the Seahawks defensive coaches will carve out a good role for Jefferson in 2016. The quick defensive tackle will be played to his strengths, which I imagine means he'll see the field in just passing downs. Jefferson will get a chance to get after the passer when players like Jordan Hill, Bennett, Clark and Chris Clemons need rotating.

  • There are so many options this year.
    C-mike came out swingin, Britt found a spot he's downright decent at, P Rich is incredibly overdue and healthy, Lockett.....all eyes on him after an impressive rookie year. Frank Clark is gonna cause havoc. Russ may have some MVP aspirations and gun out.
    Every year I say I'm more excited than the last but this season there's just too much to focus on any one thing.
    This season is gonna be something else :twisted:

  • I agree with Mick063 on Quinton Jefferson. I think Pete's public regret about not utilizing Frank Clark sufficiently as a rookie last year will provide the impetus to use Q more frequently. Pete learns from his mistakes. Quinton may start a little slow, but by the end of the year, I project his overachieving with a few monster games.

    He is going to be a stud for us.

    People won't expect it because he will start slow and suddenly burst on scene.

    He is going the be the guy that defenses key on but just cannot seem to stop.

  • What a great thread. Lots of candidates. We can only hope.
    QJ, Jarran Reed, and Tony McD on the DL.
    LBs It seems like Marsh is always a split second late and a dime short. Frank Clark moved to LB? Let's see him cover.
    In the secondary, hard to say. My expectations for Whining Simon are pretty low. Jeremy Lane could wind up being the man on the other corner.
    Britt, Sowell and an OL to be named later. Maybe a blocking/catching TE will bust out. Vannett maybe. Maybe Luke Willson will shock us all?
    CMike, PRich, Jimmy from the O-skill positions. Maybe Prosise as a dark horse.

    Overall Overachiever... Frank Clark. I hope.

    He's already begun this process. I think he will play very respectably and bring some much need continuity at LT protecting Russell's blind side.
