Monday Round-Up: Gregg Rosenthal Believes Seahawks Are Underrated In NFC West

The Around The NFL Editor projected starting lineups for the division, and sees reasons for optimism in Seattle.


Good Afternoon, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today —Monday, May 23 — about your Seattle Seahawks. insider and Around The NFL Editor Gregg Rosenthal evaluated the current starter projections for each team in the NFC West Friday. Rosenthal broke down the key pieces the Seahawks have in place, in addition to what they've added this offseason via draft & free agency.

"Considering Will Dissly's big contract and Noah Fant's receiving skills, expect to see a lot of two-TE sets.

Those heavy sets will allow Carroll to run the ball as much as possible. So will two starter-quality RB options in rookie Kenneth Walker III and Rashaad Penny. I'm a big believer that Walker's talent will be too undeniable to limit to backup duty."

Rosenthal hinted to the notion that the Seahawks defense could carry them beyond expectations, despite the quarterback battle in place.

"It's not just Seahawks Twitter and Pete Carroll optimism. This roster -- especially with its stout defensive lineup -- could finish with a winning record if Seattle gets passable quarterback play."
