D’Wayne Eskridge was selected by the Seattle Seahawks with the No. 56 pick in the 2021 NFL draft. Eskridge will have his work cut out for him if wants to earn his way into significant playing time.
Eskridge played his college ball at Central Michigan and was used as both a wide receiver and defensive back. It’s encouraging to see him selected as a Round 2 pick, but it’s hard to say that Seattle is an ideal landing spot. The Seahawks ranked 17th in 2020 passing attempts but 49% of the team’s targets were concentrated between Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf. David Moore was the team’s third-most targeted WR but saw just 9%. That’s not to say that Eskridge has a ceiling of 9% but highlights the challenge ahead of him.
