Happy St. Patrick's Day, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Friday, March 17 — about your Seattle Seahawks:

Bennett Picks His 2017 Breakout Seahawks

Earlier this week on 710 ESPN Seattle, Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett picked three players when asked which teammates he believes will break out this upcoming 2017 season.

Last year, Bennett voiced defensive end Frank Clark as somebody who could make a leap, and Clark finished his sophomore campaign second on the team in sacks with 10.

This time around, Bennett picked second-year defensive lineman Jarran Reed, offensive tackle Garry Gilliam and running back Thomas Rawls.

"I think Jarran Reed has a possibility of having a breakout year," Bennett said. "I think he's starting to get it a little bit, him being able to shed the blocks, get off the blocks and make some big plays."

Added Bennett regarding Rawls: "The last two years he's been hurt and he's had monster yard rushing games. I think he just needs to, as a pro, figure out what it is that he needs to do to stay healthy, what is it that he needs to eat, what does he need to change in his diet or his workouts to stay healthy. And I think he will have a 1,500 or 1,400 yards rushing year.

"I think Garry Gilliam's going to have a great year this year. I think he's getting better and better, so I think he's one of the guys that I think is going to be pretty good this year, too."
