In May the Seahawks sent four picks to Washington to move from the bottom of the third round to the top, so they could draft Tyler Lockett from Kansas State. Coach Pete Carroll has already proclaimed Lockett the Seahawks’ punt and kickoff returner; at least its his job to lose in training camp, after Seattle suffered with poor returns and lesser starting field positions all last season. Yet Lockett has also impressed his new team with his polished and subtly skilled route running. Expect him to get many chances during exhibition games to catch passes from the slot and outside.
At 5-10, 182 pounds Lockett isn’t the big, physical receiver the Seahawks appear to need as a true wide receiver. Chris Matthews is. He’s 6-5 and 218, coming off his NFL breakout game in Super Bowl 49 with his first catches, first 100-yard game and first touchdown of his career.
Carroll says training camp and the upcoming preseason are the former Canadian Football League man’s chances to prove he is the big, physical wide receiver everyone thought Seattle had to draft in May.
Lockett may have a tougher time getting on the field since his size doesn't differentiate him from incumbents Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse. Matthews brings size that none of the other Seattle receivers have.

Week 4 vs Detroit
After two solid weeks with 14 catches, Doug Baldwin went back to rarely used in Week 3. This has been the pattern in his Seahawks career, and the was hope of consistent 8-10 targets a week, but last week was a step back.
Even with a good matchup against Detroit, who is 23rd in aFPA to wide receivers, the confidence in Baldwin just isn't there. He is a fringe WR3 starter at best for Week 4.
