RENTON, Wash. – Except who replaces the midfielder Russell Wilsonthe Seattle Seahawks football team‘the attack will have a new main target at the close end, a new number 2 running back, the estimator will be plenty of work and, in all likelihood, three starters on the way to attack its.

Indeed, the changes the Seahawks made on that side of the ball this season go beyond quarterbacks.

But we’ll start there as we look at each of Seattle’s offense positions with a verdict on whether each is better, worse, or the same than it was in 2021.


Additional: Crew Lock

Losses: Russell Wilson

Payer: Geno Smith, Jacob Eason

Better, worse or the same: Worse

When you move from the Hall of Famer to potentially a pair of alternatives who haven’t been able to keep the starting job, it’s not a matter of whether you’ll get worse at quarterback but a slump. How dramatically reduced -will be.

After all, Wilson’s career-lowest QBR total of 54.7 in 2021 is better than what Lock has managed in any of his NFL seasons. Smith has only posted a higher QBR once in nine seasons (2015).

That raises two questions: Why didn’t the Seahawks do a more aggressive run in the Baker Mayfield, who was bought for next to nothing? And they can still go later Jimmy Garoppolo?

The former 49ers player has not been medically cleared after shoulder surgery and with the start of training camp just two weeks away, he will have to learn new offenses and build chemistry with a team of catchers. new passes quickly. Also, the Seahawks – even with a mediocre defense in recent seasons – have had his number since moving to San Francisco. So how big of an upgrade would they consider him to be over their current options?

The Seahawks believe Lock has more advantages over the unstable start of his career and argue that a different style of coaching could help him play better. But he would have to beat Smith first, and Lock was behind in that race when the offseason ended.

Run back

Additional: Ken Walker III, Darwin Thompson

Losses: Alex Collins, Adrian Peterson

Payer: Rashad Penny*Chris Carson, DeeJay Dallas, Travis Homer, Josh Johnson

Better, worse or the same: Better

Carson’s place among the returnees is accompanied by an asterisk because while he is still on contract, he has not been medically paid following neck surgery. And the fact that it hasn’t happened yet makes his chances of coming back more questionable than questionable.

But remember, Carson only played in the first four games of last season, so he is unlikely to be considered a loser from 2021. If he does return, he will indeed be a great addition. fig.

Otherwise, Penny would be the No. 1 pick after his stellar performance last season. His health is another big variable in Seattle’s backyard equation, as Penny has missed 30 of 69 possible career games (including playoffs) due to injury. Whether it’s because Penny misses more time and/or because the Seahawks manage his touches to prevent overwork, Walker should play a vital role in the rotation. ESPN’s Todd McShay rates Walker, the second-round pick, as the best back-runner in this year’s draft.

Wide receiver

Additional: Marquise Goodwin, Bo Melton, Young tree, Deontez Alexander, Kevin Kassis

Losses: Not available

Payer: DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, Freddie Swain, Dee Eskridge, Penny Hart, Cody Thompson, Cade Johnson, Aaron Fuller

Better, worse or the same: Same

Prohibit holding Metcalf or trading the absence of an extensionSeattle will return the top three companies, Metcalf, Lockett and Swain.

Eskridge is the X-factor. Last year’s second-round pick could overtake Swain in No. 3 and give Seattle’s recipient a quick and snappy pick if he’s healthy, but it’s a test. challenge. A toe injury and a concussion led to an unsuccessful rookie season. He was then sidelined for part of this year’s offseason because of a hamstring, prompting coach Pete Carroll to publicly lament the amount of time Eskridge missed.

Goodwin, added to a minimum wage agreement, is not confident about forming the team. Ditto for 7th round rookies Melton and Young.

As for Metcalf’s contract, the Seahawks still seem optimistic about completing a deal after the recipient skipped the mandatory minicamp. But if the market has gone anywhere, it doesn’t look like a crash.

Tight ending

Additional: Noah Fant, Cade Brewer

Losses: Gerald Everett

Payer: Would not agree, Colby Parkinson, Tyler Mabry

Better, worse or the same: Better

Fant, part of the Seattle return package in the Wilson trade, is an obvious upgrade over Everett. He and Dissly gave the Seahawks their tightest duo in years.

There is a widespread belief within the organization that tight ends will benefit from Wilson trade because any quarterback starting for Seattle will throw the ball into the midfield more than their predecessors.

Attack Line

Additional: Charles Cross, Abraham Lucas, Austin Blythe, Gilmore ShamariousLiam Ryan

Losses: Duane Brown, Brandon Shell, Ethan Pocic

Payer: Gabe Jackson, Damien Lewis, Dakoda Shepley, Kyle Fuller, Jake Curhan, Stone Forsythe, Phil Haynes, Greg Island

Better, worse or the same: Better

Difficult way of calling “better” and “same”.

Because while the Seahawks may have cemented the future link of their offensive line by outlining Cross with ninth pick and Lucas in 72nd overall, there are likely to be difficulties. The difficulty grew when those two switched to the NFL from heavy college programs in which they didn’t play on a three-point point.

Then again, aging Brown and smashing Shell were 26th and 27th respectively in tackles win percentage last season. So the reality is that Seattle has to be better in that department.

The Seahawks will be in near-chart-free territory if Lucas defeats Curhan and Forsythe on the right side to join Cross in the starting lineup. According to ESPN Stats & Info, only two teams since 1970 have started rookie disputes in Week 1.

Blythe, who starts tentatively at center, has a background with offensive coordinator Shane Waldron and O-line coach Andy Dickerson. But it remains to be seen how much upgrade, if any, him over Pocic.
