Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Monday, Aug. 17 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Tyler Lockett Impresses In NFL Debut
Rookie wide receiver Tyler Lockett, who the Seahawks traded up to select in the third round (No. 69 overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft, averaged 45.6 yards on four kick returns in the team's preseason opening loss to the Denver Broncos this past Friday night at CenturyLink Field, including a 103-yard return for a touchdown.
Gregg Rosenthal at NFL.com brought up the 5-foot-10, 182-pound receiver's name when putting together his list of "winners" from the NFL's exhibition-opening week. Here's what Rosenthal had to say about Lockett's debut:
Shifty rookie receivers: Tyler Lockett, Phillip Dorsett and Nelson Agholor average about 177 pounds between them, which used to be a bad thing in the NFL. They are built just right for today's game in which speed and space matter more than ever. Lockett, the third-round rookie for the Seahawks, looked like the rare player who can make other professionals look slow as a returner. Andrew Luck was locked into Dorsett early and often for the Colts. And Agholor's after-catch ability turned an ugly Mark Sanchezthrow into a long touchdown. Early returns are positive for all three players being factors this season.
