Thursday Round-Up: Three Seahawks Named To John Clayton's Midseason All-Pro Team

A daily link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks


Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Thursday, Nov. 12 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Michael Bennett, K.J. Wright, Tyler Lockett In Line For All-Pro Honors

John Clayton has put together his midseason All-Pro team and three Seahawks players were named to the NFL senior writer's list.

Defensive end Michael Bennett, linebacker K.J. Wright, and wide receiver Tyler Lockett make Clayton's cut, with the rookie Lockett making the list as a kick returner. Here's what Clayton had to say about each Seattle player:

Defensive End

Michael Bennett, Seattle Seahawks: It's hard pinning down a position for him because he lines up at every spot along the defensive line. But it's easy putting him on this list with his 6.5 sacks and numerous disruptive plays.

Outside Linebacker

K.J. Wright, Seattle Seahawks: Wright, Thomas Davis of the Panthers andJamie Collins of the Patriots are among the best coverage linebackers in football. Wright had the slight edge in the first half.

Kick Returner

Tyler Lockett, Seattle Seahawks: With no returner with more than 19 returns, the numbers don't really stand out. Dwayne Harris of the Giants had the best average (33 yards), but on only 13 returns. I'll give the nod to Lockett, who had a 25.4-yard kickoff return average and one touchdown. (He also had one punt return for a score.) Only four kickoffs have been returned for touchdowns this year.

Clayton's list serves as a good time to remind 12s that 2016 Pro Bowl voting is now open and you can vote for your favorite Seahawks right here.

Tweet Of The Day

Today's "Tweet of the Day" comes from Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas, who shared thanks after meeting Congressional Gold Medal honoree Clayton Pitre following the team's Veterans Day practice yesterday. Pitre, one of the first African Americans allowed to join the Marines in World War II, will raise the 12 Flag at CenturyLink Field this Sunday.
