Not a WR-label kindof guy, although what he has going on with DK Metcalf is awesome in that they end up being this 2 headed monster together that look like 2 WR1s. Probably the reason why Geno Smith did so well this year. It's not unlike Cassel in '08.
The idea of Lockett is exactly what I'd want for the Pats - "value" 3rd round pick and hit it right off as a returner (All Pro) with good speed (10.85 100m in HS). Draft Measurables (5'9.7" 182lbs / 4.40 (1.55) / 6.89 / 4.07 / 35.5" / 10'1") really almost like Zay's (5'9.2" 182lbs / 4.42 (1.49) / 35.5" / 10'.7"). Did moderately well then got extended for 3yr31mil, and after 4 years in the system, they got Metcalf, and Lockett took off, averaging 85rec / 1080yds / 9TD per season the last 4 years, and still put up 84rec / 1033yd / 9TD with Geno. Stayed Healthy As F - appearing in all reg. season games for all 8 years.
The healthy part is so key. All the Pats' Rd1-4 picks in the last 20 years either were injured coming in or got injured during the 1st camp / season.
Basically, assuming it's legal, I'd love to know how Lockett stays healthy at that size. Seems like a great player and teammate and really has it upstairs. Is he a "WR1"? Most would say no, although he had the 2nd most deep passes out of the slot to Kupp.
Often, the concepts or plays that Lockett suggests are not specifically designed for him. He might find a way to manipulate the defense’s coverage scheme with his route-running that allows, say, DK Metcalf to get into a preferred one-on-one matchup.
It’s that kind of unselfishness that has endeared him to so many coaches and teammates for so long in Seattle.
RENTON, Wash. – During a typical week, as the Seattle Seahawks are wrapping up their final walk-through practice the day before a game, Tyler Lockett will approach Sanjay Lal with an atypical request.
Random: my Measurables comp for JSN is Jules, except he 2" height difference and 10yd dash. Eerily similar there with shuttle / cone / 40. I personally wouldn't draft a WR at 14, but at the end of the day, I just want them to get a guy who will stay healthy, produce, and succeed, because I have no clue. JSN does scare me with that hamstring injury, though.
