Player 1: Adam Humphries, wide receiver
The Seahawks need another option at wide receiver. I believe they will end up playing a lot of 12-personnel, meaning two tight end sets. However, they currently lack a quality third option at wide receiver.
That is where Adam Humphries comes in. He has been one of the least talked about studs in the NFL. He has been a quietly consistent threat for years.
He is a dangerous underneath threat. He plays after the catch very well. His route running is more slick and evasive than a pure burner. However, as an underneath threat, that is all you need. He gets open and does so consistently.
Humphries has averaged 65 targets, 47 catches, 490 yards, and a catch rate of 71% throughout his career. He has some of the surest hands in the NFL. He has dropped just 2 passes in the last years (82 targets).
His average passer rating when targeted is an impressive 104. To put it into context, DK Metcalf and Stefon Diggs average passer rating are 108 when being targeted.
Humphries isn’t flashy. He isn’t the fastest player. He isn’t the biggest guy. He just wants it more than the other guy. He uses his elusiveness and sure hands to create separation and make the grab. You best bet if the ball is on point that Humphries will real it in.
Just what you need when you think of a number 3 wide receiver.
Projected contract: 1 year, $1.75 million
