Seahawks 4th Down: A Blue Chip WR corps 

As we discussed earlier, Drew Lock and Geno Smith made some great throws, but those were only completed because of the young talent we're witnessing at the wide receiver position.

Jaxon Smith-Njigba, the 20th selection overall in this year's draft, is continuing to look like a steal. JSN had three catches for 58 yards, with the 48 yard near score the obvious big play. I'm not sure I have seen a wide receiver look so clean coming into the league. A few weeks ago Brock Huard of 710 Seattle gave an immensely complimentary pro comparison to a mix of Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne. Obviously that's a high mark, but it goes to show what kind of smooth route runner with soft hands JSN is. 

Not drafted in the draft, but picked up as a UDFA, UCLA's Jake Bobo continues to be the star of the Seahawks' training camp and preseason on offense. Jake Bobo ranks 8th overall in preseason receiving yards and 4th in yards per reception. Part of that is doing damage throughout games in which starters are seldom playing, but he's also made plays when starters are on the field.

With DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett already looking like duo number 1 WRs, JSN and Jake Bobo are perfect complements to completing this elite WR corps. I think they're equal to what the Philadelphia Eagles have and are likely the third or fourth-best unit in the entire league. I don't know about you, but I'm pretty done with Dee Eskridge when he gets back from his latest injury/suspension.

With Smith-Njigba likely to miss the first week or two of the season due to wrist surgery, the Seahawks will desperately need Bobo to step up. That happens or else the Seahawks could be in trouble against the Rams and Lions to start the year.
