Over the past several days we have been working our way through the 2018 draft picks of the Seattle Seahawks Bradley McDougald Jersey Green , and to this point have looked at and graded the selections of Rashaad Penny, running back in the first round,Rasheem Green, defensive end taken in the third round, Alex McGough, quarterback chosen in the seventh round, Jacob Martin, defensive end picked in the sixth round andJamarco Jones, tackle selected in the fifth round. That puts us halfway through the process of grading the team’s 2018 draft picks and brings us to where can grade the one player in the draft class who will be playing on an NFL field today, fifth round punter and rookie Pro Bowler Michael Dickson. The selection of Dickson in the draft was a kind of unique situation, in that the Hawks were sitting with the 156th pick with a half dozen teams in front of them when they suddenly traded up with the Denver Broncos to spot 149. In order to move those seven spots, they had to give Denver a seventh rounder, pick 226 overall. Following the draft reports emerged that the Denver War Room erupted into laughter when the Seahawks used the pick on a punter. Now, I have to admit that I was right there with them laughing at the Seahawks, because who trades up to draft a punter? Especially a punter who was singlehandedly responsible for getting his first college football coach fired? We can argue about interpretations of blame for that Longhorns loss until everyone on earth is blue in the face, but if you can’t punt your team to victory over the Kansas Jayhawks Alex McGough Jersey Green , are you really even a punter? I mean, sure, Dickson finished with an average of 48.2 yards per punt, the second highest in the NFL behind Andy Lee’s 48.6, but it’s not like he’s crushing people on returns like Matt Bosher. In any case, Dickson is set to have his punting skills on display Sunday at the Pro Bowl, where he will be representing the Seahawks as a member of the NFC squad. And just in case you’re wondering, the two selections sent to Denver to get pick 149 and use it to bring Dickson to the Pacific Northwest were used on linebacker Devante Downs and tight end Troy Fumagalli. Fumagalli spent the 2018 season in injured reserve and did not play a single snap for the Broncos, while Downs played sparingly, recording just 125 special teams snaps. Interestingly, Dickson is credited with having played 170 special teams snaps, meaning that he had more snaps in 2018 than Fumagalli and Downs combined. In addition, when the NFL announced the initial Pro Bowl rosters back in December, there were only six rookies who made the cut. In addition to Dickson that list includes:Saquon Barkley, running back taken 1.2 by the New York Giants,Denzel Ward Shaquem Griffin Jersey Green , cornerback selected 1.4 by the Cleveland Browns, Quenton Nelson, guard selected 1.6 by the Indianapolis ColtsDerwin James, safety chosen 1.17 by the Los Angeles Chargers,Phillip Lindsay, undrafted free agent running back signed by the Denver Broncos. So, it’s a pretty solid company in which Dickson finds himself at the conclusion of his rookie season, and there is zero doubt that the Seahawks got good value out of the fifth round pick they used to secure his services. Now it simply comes down to how good a value they received. Let’s get to the poll to see. NFL-imposed suspension served, Seahawks linebacker Mychal Kendricks will make his return to the football field on Monday night. And the four regular-season contests plus however many playoff games Seattle plays could be the final act of Kendricks’ career.Kendricks, currently scheduled to be sentenced on federal insider trading charges on January 24, could be headed to prison for between two and three years.&#37413;&#28133;bviously, that&#37413;&#27290; a thought that stays in the back of your mind but you just take it every day as it is, day by day just like today,” Kendricks told reporters on Saturday regarding his looming incarceration. “I&#37413;&#27283; going to be where my feet are. I&#37413;&#27283; not going to harp on the past. I&#37413;&#27283; not going to predict the future. I&#37413;&#27283; just going to be right where I&#37413;&#27283; at so take it day by day.&#37413;&#28419;laying football helps keep Kendricks focused on where his feet are.&#37413;&#28141;his is my escape,” Kendricks said. “Football is everything for me and to have lost that also was very hard. That also was probably the hardest thing, having to walk away from the game that I love from a team that has accepted me. Just wanting to be here and not being able to http://www.seahawkslockerroom.com/authentic-byron-maxwell-jersey , hurt.&#37413;&#28413;endricks ultimately was suspended eight games after entering his guilty plea to a white-collar crime, two more than the league’s baseline punishment for domestic violence. Through it all, he has obtained clarity regarding who his true friends really are.&#37413;&#28141;he hardest part about this is the situation itself,” Kendricks said. “Understanding the severity, the friends that I&#37413;&#27293;e lost through — no one truly understands the intricacies and that being said, it&#37413;&#27290; understandable for people to want to waltz away. Deep down, I&#37413;&#27282;l never truly know who&#37413;&#27290; with me or not but I can tell. There&#37413;&#27290; a shift in energy between those who know me. If they truly do know me, then there&#37413;&#27290; no shift, but it can be a blessing in disguise. Those who aren&#37413;&#27291; supposed to be in my life won&#37413;&#27291; be and through hard situations like this, that sifts out.&#37413;&#28428;hile that may be, as Kendricks called it, a silver lining, the dark cloud looms.&#37413;&#28141;hat part is inevitable and I probably won&#37413;&#27291; speak on that,&#37413;?Kendricks said.Kendricks has football to distract him from what would be constant obsession regarding whether he will serve 30 months or 20 months or maybe just one month or maybe no time at all. At a time when some are caught on camera committing violence against others without even being arrested, it’s hard to process Kendricks facing such a lengthy sentence for a situation in which it’s entirely possible that someone preyed on his wealth and naivet&#33541;.
