Seahawks Tight Ends

by: Michael Steffes

In our weekly look at The Sporting News' positional rankings, the Seahawks again rate near the back of the pack at an offensive position. This time tight ends. The Hawks are 13th of 16 according to TSN. Here is what they say....

The team needs rookie John Carlson to emerge as a receiving option. He showed good quickness and sure hands in offseason workouts. Will Heller and newcomer Jeb Putzier are better blockers than receivers.
Meh. Putzier a better blocker than receiver? Not sure that is a well researched comment, at least based on everything I have heard previously. Also, I would personally take our tight ends over some of these teams ahead of them, such as the Rams or the Bucs, for obvious reasons. But hey, TSN thinks Vernon Davis is a stud, so take their opinions with a grain of salt. END
