The losses of Phillip Dorsett (free agency) and Josh Gordon (suspension) left the Seahawks woefully thin at wide receiver behind DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. They prioritized the position in the NFL Draft by selecting Eskridge with their first of only three picks (No. 56 overall). The smallish Western Michigan product (5'9'', 190 lbs.) is a former high school sprint and long jump champion. During his time with the Broncos, he was primarily a wide receiver, but he also returned kicks and even played snaps at defensive back. He clearly possesses versatility and explosiveness as an athlete, although his route tree is limited. It sounds like head coach Pete Carroll envisions the rookie as a deep threat. â€"He can catch the ball way down the field, he's got great downfield speed, he's got great finishing speed too,” Carroll said. â€"The kind of track background he has, you can see the acceleration stay with him as he moves. He's going to be a guy that can stretch the field for us.”
