National pundits aren’t going to expect the Seattle Seahawks to be very good this coming season. But Seattle has several players who should be worthy of making the Pro Bowl.
Seattle may have lost Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner this offseason but there is still a lot of talent on the roster. Plus, a lot of the talent is young – think of players like Darrell Taylor and Jordyn Brooks – and still making their mark on the league.
Seattle could easily exceed expectations this year because they will be so low. But with players like the five that follow leading the way, the Seahawks shouldn’t be ruled out of making a run for the postseason again.
Five Seattle Seahawks who could make the Pro Bowl in 2022
Seahawks Pro Bowl candidate number 1: Punter Michael Dickson
As great as Dickson has been in his four seasons, he has only made one Pro Bowl and that was in his rookie year of 2018. He also was First-Team All-Pro that year. But he was likely even better in 2020 when he averaged more yards per punt (49.6 to 48.2) and lead the league in punts downed inside the opponent’s 20-yard line.
Dickson was drafted to be a defensive weapon and he has been that. He has done his job pinning the other team back but the defense has been so poor they haven’t been able to capitalize on Dickson’s greatness.
Hopefully in 2022, with the Seahawks having a more aggressive defense and likely better direction from the coaching, Dickson will look even better as he sets the defense up for success.
