2. Tyler Lockett
What is happening in Seattle? The Seahawks dealt Russell Wilson for a bevy of draft picks and three players including apparent starter Drew Lock. Is this team rebuilding or do they have a belief in Lock that seemingly no other team in the league does? Regardless, it seems likely at some point Seattle is going to commit to a rebuild and deal the veterans from the roster, receiver Tyler Lockett will be an underrated target if that is the case.
Lockett has finished with over 1,000-receiving yards each of the last three seasons and scored 26-touchdowns in that time. He was often Wilson’s security blanket making the clutch play or catch to keep a game alive. He is an underrated receiver in this league and could be a great answer beyond just one season for Atlanta.
The problem right now for Atlanta is the fact they have waited too long to address the position. With their options in free agency dwindling and only so many draft picks Atlanta will need to explore the trade market despite the cost. Giving up assets in a rebuild is rarely the right move but when you’re as desperate at a position as Atlanta is at receiver perhaps sacrificing a pick for Lockett or Cooks would be worth it.
