The Seahawks want somebody to interchange the manufacturing of Doug Baldwin. John Ursua won’t be capable to try this in his rookie season however possibly in years past.
Let me be clear from the beginning, the Seahawks usually are not changing the management and manufacturing of the good Doug Baldwin anytime quickly. Tyler Lockett may put up big numbers because the primary receiver with Seattle, however is he the chief Baldwin was? That’s but to be seen. Seattle wants a alternative on the sphere for Baldwin, although, and that may be 2019 draftee John Ursua.
Ursua put up massive numbers in faculty at Hawaii. That’s nice and never so nice. If he had produced the identical numbers at Alabama, Ursua may be picked within the high three rounds of the draft. As a substitute, Ursua produced towards largely sub-par defenses in an offensive system that finest used his abilities.
Ursua does have potential, although. He’s fast and shifty. Sound acquainted? That’s precisely what Baldwin was as properly. In actual fact, Ursua is sort of the identical measurement as Baldwin. And like Baldwin out of faculty, Ursua’s potential to beat his defender on deep throws isn’t anticipated to be nice. Ursua is fast however not overly quick, identical to Baldwin.
Ursua is lots like Baldwin in different methods too. He runs easy routes and has wonderful footwork. He won’t be capable to burn previous the nook overlaying him, however he can out maneuver him. Ursua can arrange his routes successfully by being intelligent off the road, too. Ursua, like Baldwin, was born to play the slot.
There’s one space the place Ursua isn’t like Baldwin, although. Whereas Baldwin would catch every part on his aspect of the Earth, Ursua had some points with drops his final yr at Hawaii. The one attribute that set Baldwin other than practically each different NFL receiver was his potential to catch. If Ursua can be taught to be a bit extra like Baldwin on this aspect, he could have a strong profession within the NFL.
