Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Thursday, November 3 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
Kenneth Walker III and Abraham Lucas Make Good Morning Football's Top Rookie List For Week 8
As the 5-3 Seahawks continue to roll on a three-game win streak, the praise continues to roll in from national media. The praise for Seattle's rookie class continues, as running back Kenneth Walker III (No. 2) and tackle Abraham Lucas (No. 3) make Peter Schrager's Fabulous Five rookies of Week 8 list.
Lucas comes in at No. 3, with Schrager showing praise on the Washington State alum for his blocking in Seattle's 27-13 victory over the New York Giants in Week 8.
"I don't mean to embarrass anyone on the Giants defense," said Schrager. "But Abe Lucas was unbeatable on Sunday. On 40 different pass attempts, this Seahawks offense did not give up a single sack on Geno Smith."
Schrager continued his praise for Lucas as well as giving historic praise to the draft class.
"We've been talking a lot about Charles Cross," said Schrager. "He's the left tackle, Abe Lucas the right tackle has played every game and has been outstanding. I'll say it again, and I say it every single week on this show. This Seahawks rookie class is among the best this league has ever seen."
Walker rushed for a touchdown in his fourth-consecutive game in Week 8's 27-13 victory over the New York Giants.
"Kenneth Walker every single week since he became the number one guy since Penny went out with the injury has made my list," said Schrager. "I love watching him run."
Seattle's rookie class will look to contribute to another win in Week 9, as Seattle travels to face the Arizona Cardinals in a divisional rematch.
