Selecting wide receivers in the Top 10 of the NFL Draft hasn’t always worked out. But this year’s class, led by Clemson’s Sammy Watkins, is looking to alter that perception by matching potential with production.
The depth and youth of the Seahawks’ roster were big reasons why the team won the Super Bowl, and the club retained two key backup players Friday by signing Jeron Johnson and Lemuel Jeanpierre to contract extensions.
For the second time in the past three years, there is a chance that no running backs will be selected in the first round of the NFL Draft on May 8 as most teams are adopting a ground-game-by-committee approach.
Defensive end Red Bryant, drafted by the Seahawks in 2008, played in 64 games with 55 starts, tallying 121 tackles (78 solo), 3.5 sacks, 2 interceptions, 1 touchdown, 7 passes defensed, 1 forced fumble & 2 fumble recoveries.
Wide receiver Sidney Rice, signed by Seattle as an unrestricted free agent on July 29, 2011, played in 33 games with 31 starts for the Seahawks with 97 receptions for 1,463 yards and 12 touchdowns over three seasons.
