Friday Round-Up: Seahawks' Ryan Neal, Geno Smith Named To PFF Top-101 

A pair of Seahawks came in at No. 70 & No.71 on PFF’s Top-101 players for the 2022 NFL season. 


Good afternoon, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Friday, March 3— about your Seattle Seahawks.

Geno Smith and Ryan Neal Named to Pro Football Focus' Top 101 Players List

The Seahawks 9-8 record and NFC Wild Card berth came in great part to the contributions of several players who stepped up when called upon. Two of them were safety Ryan Neal and quarterback Geno Smith, who were ranked at No. 70 & 71 respectively, on Pro Football Focus' Top-100 players of 2022 rankings.

Sam Monson of PFF breaks down Smith & Ryan's inclusion on the list.


Seattle's defense was a surprising unit this season thanks in part to players like Ryan Neal at safety. He played almost 800 snaps for the Seahawks and posted an 84.4 PFF coverage grade thanks to six pass breakups and a very strong second half of the season.


Before the season, it was almost impossible to foresee the kind of year Geno Smith would have at quarterback for the Seahawks. Only the Bills' Josh Allen posted more big-time throws than Smith's 34, with the veteran showing that he can do much more than act as a bridge quarterback.
