Wednesday Round-Up: CBS Sports Lists Shaquill Griffin As A Potential 2018 Breakout Player

Shaquill Griffin was listed as a potential breakout player for 2018 by CBS Sports.


Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Wednesday, May 23 — about your Seattle Seahawks:

​2018 Breakout Players

Pete Prisco of CBS Sports put together a list of 10 players he believes are ready to take a big step forward next year in NFL. The players included are entering their second or third seasons in the league.

Among the 10 named was Seahawks cornerback Shaquill Griffin, who had a productive rookie season under head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider. Prisco likes what Griffin adds to the Seahawks' secondary, one that moved on from cornerback Richard Sherman during the offseason: 

"Richard Sherman is gone, which means it's Griffin's time to take over as the top corner in Seattle. Griffin started 11 games as a rookie and did a really nice job in coverage. With another season under his belt, he will be even better as the team's top corner. He's a good tackler, as well, which is a must in Seattle's scheme for the corners. His brother, Shaquem, will get most of the attention after being drafted by the Seahawks last month, but Shaquill is the brother to watch on the field this season."
