LB - SEA
Week 13 Outlook
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that LB Jordyn Brooks (knee) is expected to be ready to play for Week 1 of the regular season.
Brooks was impactful on the stat sheets in 2022, recording 161 tackles, three for a loss, with five passes defended, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and a sack. However, his overall impact has been lesser than the box score indicates, recording a 65.2 run-defense grade and a 40.7 coverage grade in 2022, according to PFF. He finished 2022 as the LB11 for IDP leagues, but with the return of LB Bobby Wagner and Brooks being only a week removed from the PUP list, his optimism is lower this season with an ECR of LB35, according to FantasyPros.
Jordyn Brooks, who is returning from a torn ACL, has passed his physical and will be coming off the PUP list.
Brooks tore his ACL Week 17 of last season but looks to return to prime form for the 2023 campaign. Once healthy, the 25-year-old LB is expected to produce at a high-level after totaling over 100 tackles in consecutive seasons.
Seattle Seahawks first-round pick LB Jordyn Brooks will make his first NFL start this Sunday against Dallas.
With LB Bruce Irvin being placed on season-ending IR, Brooks will become the first rookie to start a game for the Seahawks since 2016. Brooks is a fantastic athlete who racked up a ton of tackles while at Texas Tech and looks to give this Seattle D/ST a boost moving forward.
First-round draft choice out of Texas Tech LB Jordyn Brooks has agreed to terms on his four-year, $12.35M rookie deal with the Seattle Seahawks.
Brooks also gets a $6.458M signing bonus included in his contract. He totaled 362 tackles and seven sacks as a four-year starter at Texas Tech. Many around the league considered Brooks a reach, but he’ll look to prove the doubters wrong on what should be a very good Seahawks defense, especially with the recent addition of All-Pro S Jamal Adams.
The Seattle Seahawks have selected linebacker Jordyn Brooks with the No. 27 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Brooks is a surprise pick for the Seahawks near the back end of the first round, especially with fellow linebacker Patrick Queen still on the board. He is a big, physical, and athletic linebacker who can attack downhill but also cover in space and should immediately contribute in Seattle.
