Receiving depth is the key to success
The other receiver I would add is Warren Jackson from Colorado State. Jackson is not going to feature apart from on obvious passing downs and in the red zone. It is in the red zone, where he could be a really useful attribute for the Seahawks and offer another possible solution for the lack of a red zone threat on the ground.
Anyway, back to the main focus of this piece.
Of the final top seven, five were playoff teams last season and three of the final four are in the top six of this list. So to me, it appears really important that you have plenty of receiving options to be successful in the playoffs. Hence why I am so keen for the Seahawks to add greater depth to their receiving corps via the draft.
If they can do so, then they will take a big step forward from last season and make life much more difficult for the better defenses they come across in the playoffs, dare I say like the Rams in last season’s playoff defeat.
My next and final two pieces reviewing the current Seahawks roster will look at the defense, starting with the front seven in my next piece and the secondary in the final section of roster analysis.
