The Seahawks have an excellent roster but young players who will form the corps one day could make huge impacts in 2021. Seattle only had three 2021 draftees but had 8 in 2020 and several of those players could be starters this year. 6 of the players could see significant and impactful action this season.
The list below of the three Seahawks I think will make the biggest impact on the 2021 season will not include players who still might. Like tight end Colby Parkinson. I am not sure how good Parkinson is as a blocker but he is a huge red-zone target at 6’7″ and appears to have pretty good hands. I could even see Parkinson playing some receiver as well in certain situations. And if Gerald Everett or Will Dislly gets hurt, Parkinson might have a very productive season.
The same could be said for running back DeeJay Dallas. Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny have never proven to be healthy for an entire season and tend to get injured around the same time. This happened in 2020 when Dallas, an extremely raw rookie, was forced into starting a game and wasn’t terrible. Dallas, with the right sets, could be a valuable player.
Three most impactful year-two Seahawks
But the top three Seahawks could make game-changing plays. This means I do not have now-left guard Damien Lewis on this list and Lewis might be the best of all of Seattle’s year-two players, especially long-term. Lewis might end up being a Pro Bowl guard this year and for many seasons t come.
But Lewis might not be the most impactful of the players on this list. He will be a beyond-steady performer but likely won’t make too many plays that are the difference between Seattle winning and losing a game.
Below are the three season-two Seahawks who are likely to be the most impactful this coming year.
