Week two of the preseason is upon us and brings the Denver Broncos to Seattle for a matchup on Saturday night. The Seahawks laid a dud last weekend in Vegas, but given that it’s the preseason, no Seahawk fan should be ultra concerned as the individual battles among position groups are far more interesting to follow than the overall success of the team.
I do expect to see the majority of the Seahawks starters out there in some capacity on Saturday, but I’m anxious to see how Pete Carroll chooses to go about that.
With all of that being said, there are a lot of players to keep an eye on against the Broncos, however, none more so than the ones mentioned below.
Seahawks to watch in preseason game 2
Player number 3: Darrell Taylor
I thought Darrell Taylor held his own last week against the Raiders given that it was his first-ever game in the NFL. Only one game in and it’s so obvious to notice his athleticism and speed off the edge.
Seahawks fans have platooned him in their minds as the almost hybrid role in the defense where he can play SAM linebacker as well as rushing off the edge on occasion. I am just excited to continue to see him in-game action which is the sole reason why I am highlighting him this week.
The Seahawks roster is becoming more top-heavy as the days go by (given the Jamal Adams extension) which is why they desperately need to start hitting on draft picks to give them cheap, productive players for the time being. Darrell Taylor is the perfect option to become one of those players for the next few years.
