Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, March 2 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Lockett Among League's Best Up-And-Comers
Wide receiver Tyler Lockett, who earned first-team All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors as a returner during his rookie season with the Seahawks, has been named to NFL.com's All-Under-25 team, a squad compiled by NFL Media analyst Elliot Harrison.
Lockett, age 23, racked up 852 yards (25.8-yard average) on kick returns and 379 yards (9.5-yard average) on punt returns this past year for Seattle, including a 105-yard kick return for a touchdown and a 57-yard punt return for a score. He came on strong as a receiver as well, making 51 grabs for 664 yards and six touchdowns to join Pro Football Hall of Famer Gale Sayers as the only two rookies in NFL history to record five touchdown catches, a kick-return touchdown, and punt-return touchdown in a season.
Here's what Harrison had to say about Lockett, who the Seahawks moved up to select in the third round of last year's draft out of Kansas State:
If a guy makes first-team All-Pro as a rookie, then he has to be on the All-Under 25 squad heading into his sophomore campaign, right? Lockett averaged 25.8 yards per kick return and 9.5 yards per punt return while catching 51 passes. His ability to do everything earns him his place on this prestigious group of up-and-comers.
