Touchdown Wire ranks Seahawks' offense 7th-best in NFL – Seahawks Wire

With the start of the 2020 NFL season slowly inching closer, Touchdown Wire’s Mark Schofield took a look at all 32 offenses around the league in order to rank the units from worst to first.

Taking each team’s moves during free agency and the NFL draft into consideration, Schofield slipped the Seahawks into the No. 7 spot.

Here are some of the statistics he used in determining the order:

Points Per Game: 25.3 (9th out of 32)

Yards Per Game: 374.4 (8th out of 32)

Yards Per Play: 5.7 (12th out of 32)

“On the offensive side of the football they have Russell Wilson, and that honestly might be enough,” Schofield explained. “In a quarterback-driven league he is one of the elite players, who can truly raise the level of play in those around him. But he does have a solid supporting cast. DK Metcalf avoided questions about a three-cone drill to become a dangerous threat on the outside, and Tyler Lockett remains a consistent option for Wilson at all levels of the field.”

“Adding Greg Olsen will give Wilson a solid tight end option, and honestly don’t sleep on seventh-round pick Stephen Sullivan from LSU,” Schofield continued. “He might have struggled to see playing time behind Thaddeus Moss after switching to tight end, but he could be a mismatch type of player in this offense.”

Wilson and company likely hope they’ll get the chance to take the field sooner than later and improve upon their rankings in 2020.
