For a team that had the second-fewest pass attempts in the NFL last season, there sure has been a lot of talk about the Seattle Seahawks’ passing game.
Some point to the fact that Marshawn Lynch is losing his marbles (and in turn his carries) due to his idiotic tendencies as of late, along with the fact that he is now getting up there in running back years. Others say that with a healthy Percy Harvin lining up opposite of new speedster Paul Richardson, it would be a crime not to utilize those mismatches on an increasingly regular basis.
Whether or not the Hawks do end up throwing more this year, we have a quarterback who is relevant again, and what looks to be a lot of talent and speed throughout our wide receiver corps.
I believe John Schneider will keep no more than six receivers and potentially will have to go with five in order to carry three running backs as well as three quarterbacks.
Here are my projections as to which 5-6 WR’s make the final 53-man roster.
