Good afternoon, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today – Friday, July 1 – about your Seattle Seahawks.
Charles Cross named to Charles Reuter Offensive All-Rookie Team
In April, the Seattle Seahawks selected Mississippi State tackle Charles Cross with the No.9 selection in the 2022 NFL Draft. Cross became the highest-selected Seahawk draft pick since Seahawks legend Russell Okung in 2010. NFL analyst Charles Reuter released his Offensive All-Rookie Team for the upcoming season, featuring the Seahawks rookie tackle.
Reuter gave insight on his selections, with projected snaps and playing time being a major factor.
"As you'll see, my projection for the 2022 All-Rookie Team leans heavily on early-round picks, as well. They have the talent -- and just as importantly, the opportunity that most middle-to-late round picks lack -- to impress during their initial professional season."
Reuter gave specifics on Cross' selection and potential impact for the Seahawks.
Drafted: Round 1, No. 9 overall
Speaking of the Seahawks, their selection of Cross filled a huge gap at left tackle (as did their selection of right tackle Abraham Lucas in the third round). It won't be a surprise if the former Mississippi State Bulldogs' steady pass protection reminds Seattle fans of a healthy Russell Okung.
