3. An explosive offense is always exciting

Speaking of Smith-Njigba, he's going to find himself with plenty of chances to make plays on a poor lone defender until opposing defensive coordinators figure out how in the world to handle the myriad playmakers at Geno Smith's disposal on offense.

Smith-Njigba should be an effective weapon out of the gate, but Tyler Lockett is arguably the most underrated player at his position with the least-celebrated sustained production in the game. D.K. Metcalf earns the lion's share of attention at the position and he's also a beast on the field as well, which gives the Seahawks three players at present who could easily go for 1,000 yards receiving.

Out of the backfield, Kenneth Walker III just wrapped up a 1,000-rushing season despite hardly playing in the entire first quarter of the year. Then the Seahawks grabbed the perfect complement to the agile walker by grabbing Zach Charbonnet in the second round out of UCLA, a pass-protecting and pass-catching back who should form an ideal tandem partner with Walker.

There are other weapons, of course, including tight end Noah Fant working alongside the wideouts and it's clear the chains will have no problems moving on Sundays in Seattle with this much talent signed on.
