The Seahawks are stocking up on quality receivers. With the signing of Braylon Edwards today (3rd overall draft pick of 2005), that makes it two former early-round draft picks signed in the last week (the other, Antonio Bryant, is a former 64th overall selection by Dallas in 2002), after recently releasing another former-first round pick (Mike Williams). Edwards and Bryant, along with newly-acquired receiving TE Kellen Winslow, are all former Cleveland Browns (where ex-Seahawks head coach and GM Mike Holmgren is Team President).
Seahawks WRs Golden Tate (60th overall in 2010) and Sidney Rice (44th in 2007) were drafted in the 2nd. Their surprise top receiver last year, Doug Baldwin, signed as an undrafted free agent rookie from Stanford.
Many believe the Seahawks will not enter week 1 with Edwards, Bryant and Tate all with the team. Edwards chatted with NFL Network about his new team.
The bottom part of the depth chart at WR is filled with intrigue, including small-school beast Ricardo Lockette, 6’6″ Kris Durham, and Seattle staples Ben Obomanu and Deon Butler.
This receiving corps is similar to that of the Eagles in that the top receivers are either not great or at least not reliable, but the depth is phenomenal. I’d rather have the Redskins’ corps due to the talent at #1 and #2 (Santana Moss and Pierre Garçon) along with young talent that has already shown flashes in regular season games (Josh Morgan, Brandon Banks, and Leonard Hankerson).
