Seahawks have high hopes for Ricardo Lockette
By Brady Henderson
The Seahawks didn’t select a wide receiver with any of their 10 draft picks, an indication that the team felt comfortable enough to move forward with its current group.
Coach Pete Carroll said as much during his conversation with “The Kevin Calabro Show” on Friday, when he ran down the depth chart and listed what each receiver brings to the team. Carroll had the most to say about Ricardo Lockette, who made two catches for 105 yards and a touchdown in two games late last season.
“This is a guy that we really see a big future in,” Carroll said. “He’s got tremendous speed. … He’s got great skills. He’s 6-2, something and he’s just learning the game. [He’s] a very, very raw player but a guy that we really see a lot of great stuff in in the future and hopefully he can gain a spot on this team and play a role.”
In Monday’s Wrap Up video, Brock Huard and Mike Salk discuss the team’s hopes for Lockette and fellow receiver Kris Durham, who is also entering his second year in the NFL.
