  • Creed would have been a home run.

    I don’t have an issue with the player but with the position picked. Creed would have been a long term anchor. A WR? Couldn’t we give Ursua a walk shot?

  • This kid will be a pro bowler. Excellent pick.
    3rd best receiver in the draft.

    He is what Percy Harvin was supposed to be.

    Pete and John yet again school the rest of the league.

  • #Seahawks second-round WR D'Wayne Eskridge never reached 800 receiving yards in 5 college seasons. Already 24 years old.

    5'8" guy


    Terrace Marshall was still on the board

    The first things said about him, according to his draft profile in nfl.com, are; "not a great route-runner, struggles with contested catches, lacks desired size"

    How are we supposed to be happy with this pick?

    Not a great pick but a still a weapon perhaps....

    Was hoping for Corner/Offensive Line

    Eskridge is already 24 years old. Eskridge will take Atwell to school.

    Not at all. I had him 37th on my draft board.
    This is an absolute steal.

    The rest of the league is scared now. Nobody saw this pick coming.
    He'll run circles around DBs. Metcalf, Lockett and Eskridge? We the greatest show on turf

    Russ is complaining about getting hit & Creed falls to us & is a position of need & we take a deep threat WR so Russ can hold the ball longer.

  • Sorry, but that is just a stupid pick with Creed sitting there at 56. This is why RW talks openly about line protection because of decisions like this by the FO.

    Even a OT, OG or even CB would have at least been fine with me. Typical.

  • I like the pick! We needed a WR he is fast and he is a special teams ace too. Sounds like another really good reciever that just got a new contract for us.
    We do need a center though which was what I was hoping we would pick.

    Yep. 4.3 speed, good hands and can flat out run by defenders.
    Some of the peeps complaining need to go watch his highlights.
    Sure, I was hoping they’d draft a corner with good ball skills but this guy can take simple slants to the house.

  • I like the player, but I would have preferred Creed Humphrey since he was still (surprisingly) on the board.

    WR and returner was a huge need for this team - whether you want to admit it or not. This dude is a baller and will fit nicely.

  • Watching the reverse he ran successfully makes me think this is a combo Wilson/Waldron pick. He's quick, no doubt. That alone will spread out defenses, and with the number of slant-routes he ran in the highlight video, it will remove some pressure from Russ if we run something similar.

  • Eskridge returned to a receiver role full-time in 2020, garnering first-team All-MAC honors on offense and as a kick returner while also being named the MAC Special Teams Player of the Year. He led the FBS with 213 all-purpose yards per game (one carry, 27 yards; 17 kick returns, 467 yards, 27.5 average, one touchdown) and ranked fourth with 130.7 receiving yards per game and 23.1 yards per reception (34 receptions, 784 yards, eight touchdowns).


    That definitely sounds awful and like a completely wasted (end of round 2) pick. We should all be super mad and stuff.

    For those of you that aren't watching on NFL Network, they have a next gen stats draft score for each pick. Eskridge received a score of 89 overall, which is quite high, especially for still being there near the end of round 2. For comparison, the Rams pick, Tutu Atwell, received an overall score of 68, and the Panthers pick, Terrace Marshall Jr., received on overall score of 75.

  • Watched his highlights, don't question the player, just where he was picked. Since the clock basically wound down to the very last second, my guess is they were trying to trade down but just couldn't get a deal done and had to take the best player on their board. Meh, don't hate it, don't love it. I'll give the kid a chance.

    I believe his score landed him as the # 20th prospect in the draft. The whole draft. Zach Wilson, the 2nd pick in the draft, scored an 87, by way of comparison. So, let's give the kid a chance.

    How did Tavon do in the league??

    He has one or two good games against Seattle but didn’t really fair well against other teams.

    Let’s hope Seattle didn’t pass up on a pro bowl lineman or corner with this pick...

    How about we post the entire sentence instead of just the negatives?

    He's not a great route-runner, will struggle with contested catches and lacks desired size, but he can really fly and has home run potential from anywhere on the field.

  • I may be wrong but I think there is plenty of decent depth receivers that could have been had in the 4th but here are the grades on Centers I know top 2 Landon 85 and Vera-Tucker 91

    But Humphrey had an 81 grade
    Myers has a 7o
    and a 62 for the third best center left Trey Hill

    So there you have it the Chiefs just took Humphrey they are smart!

    You have right now even after the 3 other WR taken 9th ranked tyler Vaughns USC WR grade 68, and another 2 slots down Amon-Ra St. Brown WR USC.

    O well,

    I don't really care if he is a good player BPA!
