Seahawks: Projected 2016 starters and the next man up
By Keith Myers
4 of 24
Split End Receiver
Starter: Jermaine Kearse
Backup: Kenny Lawler
The order of these two players was a tough call. Kearse has begun the last two seasons as a starter at wide receiver for Seattle, and both of those seasons he’s lost that job to a rookie around mid-season. There appears to be a good chance that it’ll happen for a third season in a row.
This year’s rookie is Kenny Lawler. He’s tall with long arms and a massive catch radius. While he isn’t the fastest receiver out there, he brings a unique skill set to a receiving group that isn’t particular skill-diverse.
