Wednesday Round-Up: Two Seahawks Mentioned in NFL.com's All-Pro Team Projections
Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, Aug. 26 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Richard Sherman, Tyler Lockett Earn All-Pro Projection Mentions
NFL Media Analyst Elliot Harrison at NFL.com has put together projections for the 2015 All-Pro team and two Seahawks earn mention on his list. Harrison included 11 players on offense, 12 players on defense - to account for different defensive schemes, as well as a kicker, punter, and returner.
Harrison lists three-time first-team All-Pro Richard Sherman at cornerback, and in somewhat of a surprise move adds rookie wide receiver Tyler Lockett to his list as a return specialist. Here's what Harrison had to say about each player:
Richard Sherman: How do you pick someone other than Revis or Sherman? Chris Harris Jr. made my All-Underrated Team, yet it can be pointed out that Aqib Talib always faces the WR1s. Patrick Peterson is not in Sherman's class. And if the NFC Championship Game was any indication, you still can't pick on Sherm.
Tyler Lockett: It's always fun to place a rookie somewhere on the All-Pro squad. Last year, Zack Martin made the official team. How about this Seahawks true freshman at returner? Lockett could be key for an earthbound Seattle offense, which will benefit from the brand of explosion this guy has displayed in the preseason.
