Seattle Seahawks’ Ten Options At No. 95
6) Tyler Lockett, Kansas State WR
The Seahawks got their feature pass-catcher in All-Pro Jimmy Graham. Now they get the X-factor. Tyler Lockett is the slight-framed, but explosive type. He has all types of speed. Lockett ran the fifth best 40-time, the third best 20-time and the best 60-time among all wide-outs at the combine. And not only does he have the speed, but he knows how to use it. Lockett runs sharp routes and creates tons of separation out of his breaks. This is a trait that no Seattle receiver does on a consistent basis (other than Graham’s constant separation due to his size).
And with his athleticism and shiftiness, he would make for a dangerous return man, something the Seahawks are in desperate need of. It’s very possible that Seattle targets him in the second round as well.
Chance he’s available: 30%
