The Seahawks go nine-deep at the tight end position and they’ve got a whole stable of capable starters, including the off-season addition of Greg Olsen. Teams normally keep three to four tight ends on their 53-man roster, so in order for Sullivan to ultimately make the squad, he may have to be listed as a WR. Olsen, along with Will Dissly, Jacob Hollister, and Luke Willson, all have starting TE experience in the NFL, so Sullivan will most definitely have his work cut out for him to make the team as a TE. He played two years as a WR at LSU before being transitioned to a TE his senior season. At 6’5”, Sullivan boasts a unique skill set as a combo receiver with the ability to make plays down the field, something Seattle could want from the tight end position this season. In his three-year career at LSU, Sullivan caught 46 balls for 712 yards and three TDs.
