Good afternoon, 12s.
First of all, Happy August! Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Monday, August 3rd – about your Seattle Seahawks:
A Breakout 2020?
Late last week, ESPN.com released a list of some of the NFL's top prospects, particularly 25 players who could have break out years in 2020. Of the list of 25 young players who could immediately have an impactful season in the 2020 season, our very own Will Dissly made the list at No. 20.
Those who made the Top 25 list were designated by "drafted in the third round or later, or signed as an undrafted free agent, entered the NFL between 2017 and 2019, had fewer than 500 career offensive or defensive snaps, have not signed a contract extension, and were age 26 or younger in 2020."
As he returns for his third season, Dissly hopes to return to full health after suffering an achilles injury in 2019. In a competitive tight end room of veteran Greg Olsen, Jacob Hollister, Luke Willson and rookie Colby Parkinson, Dissly joins his teammates as another important target for Russell Wilson.
In 2019, Dissly caught 23 of 27 targets for 262 yards and four touchdowns, which lead all tight ends in scores at the time of his injury, according to SI.com.
Dissly has been staying busy this offseason, determined to come back stronger and more productive than ever.
