Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Wednesday, May 1 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Seahawks Make Best Pick In NFC West
Lots of eyes were locked onto the Ole Miss wideout DK Metcalf when he ran a 4.33 40-yard dash at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine. The most impressive part is the fact that Metcalf is a pretty big dude. The receiver weighs in at 229 lbs. measuring six foot four inches.
All things considered, NFL.com published an article on Wednesday morning grading the NFC West draft picks. The 'Best Pick' in the notable selections category happened to be DK Metcalf. We picked up Metcalf in the second round of the NFL Draft at pick No. 64 overall.
Gennaro Filice from NFL.com writes that Metcalf "couldn't have landed in a better situation. The Seahawks look to do two things offensively: pound the rock and take deep shots, with the threat of the latter opening up the former, and vice versa. Metcalf's straight-line speed gives him an instant role in Brian Schottenheimer's attack: take the top off the defense and, when the situation presents itself, go get Russell Wilson's majestic downfield heaves."
The article also features Cardinals WR Hakeem Butler (Iowa State, No. 103 overall) as the most surprising pick in the NFC West and Rams RB Darrell Henderson (Memphis, No. 70 overall) as the biggest sleeper. Check out NFL.com's rankings of the NFC East draft picks and those of the AFC East.
Social Post Of The Day
Today's 'Social Post of the Day' comes Seahawks defensive end Cassius Marsh, as he posted on Instagram celebrating 'Turtle Tuesday.' I think #TurtleGang is one of the better hashtags I've seen out in the world.
