If Seahawks WR Golden Tate could turn back the clock and give himself advice as a rookie, what would it be?
"You've actually got to put in the work," he said, "and that's when you'll see the difference."
You certainly have witnessed the results with Tate, who not only caught 45 passes last season, but more tellingly, the guy who once struggled with the precision of his routes has become one of the team's most dependable targets.
"He's the highest tester in terms of assignments," HC Pete Carroll said.
Tate has climbed his way up to #40 in our standard WR rankings and is an interesting WR4 to name in the middle to late rounds on draft day. There is a lot of opportunity in the Seahawks' offense with Percy Harvin out and Sidney rice dealing with pain in his knee.
