Just when most people expected the Seattle Seahawks to be one of the worst teams in the league, Pete Carroll had another ace up his sleeve.
Geno Smith took his career back from the ground, outplaying Drew Lock for the starting QB job, and playing like a legit MVP candidate for the first half of the season.
So, now that we know that the Seahawks are far ahead of schedule in their rebuild, maybe it’s time they give their QB1 some more weapons.
That might as well be the case in the upcoming NFL Draft, as it seems like they could be on the board for a WR3 to take some pressure off DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.
Recently, Smith made the rounds after posting a story of him working out with Boston College WR Zay Flowers, one of the most intriguing prospects in that position.

Flowers would be tailor-made for Carroll’s wideout mold.
He’s 5’10”, 177 pounds, and hauled in over 200 catches, 3,000 receiving yards, and 29 touchdowns in 48 games played in college.
Moreover, he’s likely to be featured in the slot, which is the biggest area of improvement for the Seahawks’ passing game, and he could also be featured in multiple trick plays as a rushing weapon, which he occasionally did in college.
Most insiders predict that Flowers could be gone in the first round, so the Seahawks would have to use one of their two first-round picks to get him.
That’s a steep price to pay for a slot receiver, but Flowers has superstar upside and, apparently, some rapport with their QB.
