It’s way too early to tell, but this could be Seattle’s greatest need next April depending on how things play out. So it’s worth looking at some of the receivers working under the radar. Jordan Matthews could be the best wide out in the SEC this year and he had a good start against South Carolina. Cordarelle Patterson is new on the scene but eligible for next year’s draft as a JUCO transfer. He made some big plays for Tennessee in week one against NC State.
NOTE - The Seahawks waived Kellen Winslow today. It’s believed he refused to take a pay cut and that was the end of that. Another tight end is going to be added, but I think the main motivation is the play of Anthony McCoy. He’s shown real progress this pre-season and has chemistry with Russell Wilson. When I scouted McCoy at USC he looked like a first round talent, but dropped in the draft due to off-field concerns. My guess is McCoy’s progress made Winslow’s large contract expendable. It’s a position to keep an eye on in college football this year, but the last few years have been lean at tight end.
