Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Thursday, January 5 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
Six Seahawks Make PFF's All-Pro Team
With the 2016 NFL regular season books, honors for Seahawks players continue to fly in from various media outlets.
Using their own data and grades, analysts at Pro Football Focus compiled their 2016 All-Pro roster to recognize the best players at each position. A whopping six Seahawks players were mentioned in the site's list, with two players receiving honorable mention, two making first teams and two making second teams.
Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner and wide receiver Tyler Lockett (as a returner) were the picks as first team starters. Here's why they selected each player:
With just one midseason hiccup against Buffalo, Bobby Wagner's year was an exercise in consistent excellence, as he earned solid grades every week, performing well in all facets of the game, but particularly in run defense. Unlike the two players ranked ahead of him in PFF grades (Chicago's Jerrell Freeman and Carolina's Luke Kuechly), he was able to stay healthy and on the field all season.
The two best return men in the game this season both return kicks and punts, and Seattle's Tyler Lockett makes the team at kick returner. Though he didn't find his way into the end zone this season, he was consistently making moves to maximize return yardage and helping the Seahawks' field position.
To make up the remaining players, tight end Jimmy Graham and wide receiver Doug Baldwin (flex) were the honorable mentions, while linebacker K.J. Wright and safety Kam Chancellor were the second teamers.
