Seahawks cornerback Tariq Woolen and running back Kenneth Walker III were both named to the Pro Football Writers of America's All-Rookie Team on Tuesday, just the latest form of recognition for two of the top rookies in the NFL this season.
Woolen, who led all rookies and tied for the NFL lead with six interceptions, was named to the NFC Pro-Bowl squad last month, while Walker, who led all rookies with 1,050 rushing yards and nine touchdowns, is a finalist for Pepsi Rookie of the Year honors, as is Woolen.
Walker and Woolen were part of a rookie class that produced multiple starters on both sides of the ball, a group that helped the Seahawks reach the postseason in 2022, and that has the Seahawks feeling optimistic about their future.
Additionally, kicker Jason Myers was named to the PFWA All-NFC team earlier this week, the only Seahawks player to earn All-NFC honors. Myers, who led the NFL in scoring this year with 143 points, a total that also tied a franchise record, was selected to his second Pro Bowl last month.
