D.K.Metcalf and Tyler Lockett are undoubtedly one of the best receiver pairings in the NFL. But does that give the Seahawks an armory and enough of a receiving threat to make the most of Russell Wilson at QB?
Behind these two the next wideout on the depth chart is Freddie Swain, In his rookie season, Swain only managed 13 receptions. Whilst he may get more opportunities now that David Moore has departed but expecting him to be the guy having been the 214th pick in the 2020 draft.
The Seahawks have added Gerald Everett to replace Jacob Hollister at tight end, but I remain skeptical that Everett is going to be a big step up for the Seahawks.
As an overall receiving corps I rank Seattle 24th overall, so this is an area in need of improvement in 2021. As is the defensive secondary. Again the Seahawks have been pretty creative in trying to replace both starting corners from last season, having lost both Griffin and Dunbar to free agency.
Witherspoon replaces Griffin, but Tre Flowers did not perform well at left corner post-Dunbar’s injury last season. If the Seahawks could add a replacement via free agency that would help this secondary a great deal. And it needs help, ranking 27th in my list.
Steven Nelson was recently cut by the Steelers, and left under a bit of a salary-related cloud, as a result, he could be acquired at a reduced price and would certainly be an upgrade on Flowers. That would leave the Seahawks going after a receiver and a center with their first two draft picks.
