Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today – Monday, August 22 – about your Seattle Seahawks.
Seahawks rank in the top 10 at several positions in ESPN rankings.
With the 2022 NFL preseason ending this weekend—the Seahawks finish up at Dallas on Friday—the regular season is nearly upon us. Mike Clay of ESPN gives the NFL position group rankings for the 2022 season for all teams, with the Seahawks ranking well at several spots.
At an average team age of 26-years-old, the Seattle Seahawks are pretty young. With so many new faces on both sides of the ball, the team is looking to key veterans like wideout Tyler Lockett to provide leadership. Between Lockett and DK Metcalf, the Seahawks are led by two receivers who have combined for 331 receptions, 4,499 yards and 40 touchdowns over the past two seasons, a big reason behind the Seahawks' receiver group ranking of No. 7.
The Seahawks have a good combination of balanced tight ends, led by trade-acquisition Noah Fant, who has reunited with former Denver Broncos teammate and close-friend, quarterback Drew Lock. A revamped and rejuvenated Colby Parkinson is another intriguing piece to the Seahawks tight end group, along with Will Dissly and Tyler Mabry. Seattle's tight end group ranks at No.8.
With Pro-Bowl duo of Quandre Diggs and Jamal Adams leading the way, the Seahawks rank ninth at safety.
With many dynamic pieces in place for the young Seahawks, optimism is high to see the product on the field this season. The sky's the limit.
