Tyler Lockett front-and-center in Seahawks' plans-- Mon Jun 27 5:30 pm --
HC Pete Carroll: "He's going to get a lot of stuff happening his way&a
(Russell Wilson and Tyler Lockett have) been working together for much of the offseason to make sure (last year's) near-misses turn into conversions in 2016. "(Lockett is) right in the middle of all our planning and all of our preparation. You have to deal with him in our offense. He’s going to be moved around to a lot. ... He can do everything. ... Once we got a hold of the kind of dynamic player that he is, we used the heck out of him, and he’s going to get a lot of play time, a lot of stuff happening his way. Really helps (Doug Baldwin), really helps (Jermaine Kearse). Those guys are great complements," HC Pete Carroll said.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:It is hard not to read into Carroll's last comment about Baldwin and Kearse being "great complements", as it appears he is suggesting Lockett - and not Baldwin - will be the focal point of the passing game. For the time being, owners should treat Carroll's assertion as him getting caught up in promoting his young wideout. Nevertheless, Lockett stands a great chance to blow right past his 51-664-6 line last season and serve as a quality WR3 in all leagues.
