I am going to be honest. There are no rookie Seahawks that deserve a D or F. Give me two years and then I might grade them that way. But no Seattle rookie has been terrible or a clear bust. Yet anyway. So don’t these players getting an I on the report card as me saying they aren’t good.
Alex McGough and Jamarco Jones
Neither player has seen action during the 2018 season, nor will they. (One hopes McGough isn’t forced into playing, that is.) Jones broke his ankle in preseason play and is on IR. Even if healthy he wouldn’t have the reps to be able to play and be effective. He should return in 2019 but as well as the line is playing right now and with most, if not all, the starters returning next year, Jones might have trouble making the team.
McGough is a project. He has physical skill but may not have the accuracy to ever be anything other than a backup. I ti s likely that if McGough ever does play much in the NFL, it won’t be with the Seahawks.
Unfortunately, Dissly got to play in just four games this season. He broke Seahawk rookie records for a tight end in his first game with 105 yards receiving. Through his first two games he had two touchdown receptions.
But Dissly was injured his game four and will miss the rest of the season. He could make a big impact next season as he has shown he can block well (as expected) and catch well (better than expected). Dissly gets an incomplete because he played such a limited time. But he would get an A for the time he did play.
Turner is on the active roster but has appeared in just two games. Seattle needs receiving depth and special teams players so that is why Turner is on the roster. For now.
