Winner No. 2 - Edge rusher Uchenna Nwosu
My assumption is that Nwosu is never going to get his due as one of the better edge rushers in the NFL. He was much better than any other pass rusher for Seattle last year and he hasn't dropped off in 2023. Per Pro Football Focus, he is the 19th-highest-graded edge rusher in the NFL through four games (and he is second against the run). He already has 12 total pressures, 9 hurries, and 2 sacks. Plus, he has forced 2 fumbles this season.
Against the Giants, Nwosu had 6 tackles, 2 sacks, a tackles for loss, and 2 quarterback hits. He quietly goes about his business and seemingly makes an important play far more than any other Seattle edge rusher. But if Nwosu would just get a bit mouthy from time to time, he might make a Pro Bowl or three.
That's what gets people noticed now, right? The proverbial squeaky wheel gets the grease. Thankfully, Nwosu doesn't seem to care so much about hearing his own voice be louder than other people's but appears to want his play on the field to be the most important thing he does as a football player. This will help Seattle get wins but won't help him get personal accolades.
While Seattle has struggled with having players getting banged up so far this year, Nwosu hasn't been one of those guys. Let's hope he never gets hurt because likely people who watch football will only take notice of Nwosu's absence more than his play when he is actually on the field.
