i'm going under - he'll be at best the 5th receiver in a run heavy offense.
that mean's hell only be on the field for a limited number of snaps.

if he gets 18 i'd consider that a fantastic return, even considering wilson's penchant for spreading the ball around

oh wait, willson is our new TE, i keep getting him confused with harper

Doubt it. Possible but not likely. 24% chance.

He could as many as he wanted to. But we have good enough receivers that I've gotta think he would look kind of silly only throwing the ball to himself.

20 receptions, 4 TDS. 1 from RW, 1 from Chris Harper, 1 from Sidney Rice, and 1 from Golden Tate. Actually nevermind, Tate's toss will get picked

I'll say over 30. He will be the least covered.

I'll go with over for the simple fact that McCoy will be out for at least the first half of the season.

He's more athletic than McCoy so he'll get more separation. I can see 20 rec. and 3 TD's likely.

I think he'll get more than 18 for a few reasons. Some will argue that the passing attempts will be limited next year and that there won't be alot to go around. The Seahawks averaged 25 attempts in 2012, but that's not counting the passing attempts that turned into running opportunities. To be safe let's say 50% of Russell Wlson's rushing attempts were designed passes that he decided to tuck it and run. That puts you at 28 actual attempts per game. Assuming Sherman is correct and RW is much faster in getting through his reads and making decisions, I see no reason why he can't attempt 30-32 passes a game. If he's averaging 32 a game, and if he keeps his completion % around 62% (he was at 64% last year) that would mean you'd have 20 completions a game. It's not inconceivable that he could get 1-2 receptions on average per game.

I thing they'll be creative and design ways to get Willson the ball especially near the redzone where he can use his size to make plays. I'm also excited to see what kind of impact Harper will have, again as a redzone target to go up and get the ball I think both of these guys could be dynamic offering size that we don't really have at WR aside from Rice.

How many total receptions did Seattle's #3 TEs have last season? How much do #3 TEs typically get on most teams? I don't know the answers to those questions, but considering that Evan Moore was our #3 TE last year for nearly the entire season and had just one catch for six yards, I'm thinking 18 catches might be tough for a #3 TE to get, especially as a rookie on an extreme "spread the football" offense.

Edit: Just saw the McCoy news. Willson won't be a #3 next season.

We've had only one OTA and we are already speculating how many catches one of our Draftees will be making? Can we, at least, wait until the end of Training Camp to make this judgment?

Of course, we'd have nothing to talk about if we followed those guidelines.

Over 18 easily, especially in the wake of McCoy blowing out an Achilles. I see him as a quality #2 at this point, more of a receiver than a blocker, and he'll get around 25 rec for 400 with 3 TDs, unless Miller goes down as well. If Millier and McCoy are both down somehow, I would estimate Willson at approximately 35+ grabs, for 500, and at least 5TDs.

He would have to beat out Mcgrath to have a chance of getting near 18.

I think the Seahawks will use Willson a lot as a deep threat. Sending Willson out on post, flag or fly patterns at least several times a game, he'll probably be guarded by a LB or Safety, both of which Willson may have a significant speed advantage over. IMO, Willson ought to be good for a 2 catch per game average which would put him at a 32 catch minimum. Willson YPC should be well into the teens and total 500 yards or more for the coming season.

Even Cameron Morrah - Willson before Willson only caught 6- or 8 passes a year.

I was thinking the same thing in that Willson's speed is something we have not had before and could be mis- match city. I can see Bevell designing something for him that would add a dimension to the offense. Now this is based on him making the team.

Not enough offensive plays. 60 to 70 plays a game, the running game is going to eat up 25 to 30 of those. Rice, Harvin, Tate, Miller, Baldwin, sacks, incompletions, catches from RB and FBs and 5th and 6th string WRs will eat up most of the passing snaps. With Harvin in the mix this team will use the two TE package drastically less then in past years. Wilson will get less then 18 catches. Just not enough balls to go around.
