RB Chris Carson – In Week 2 in 2017, Carson emerged as the lead back for Seattle after gaining 100 combined yards with one catch on 21 touches. He followed that game with boring results over the next two weeks (52 combined yards with two catches on 13 touches and 66 combined yards with three catches on 15 touches) before an ankle injury ended his season. As a backup RB at Oklahoma State in 2015 and 2016, Chris gained 1,319 combined yards with 14 TDs and 30 catches on 243 touches. Seattle likes his game, and Carson should be the top option for carries on early downs behind Penny.

QB Mason Rudolph – Over the last three seasons at Oklahoma State, Rudolph passed for 12,765 yards with 86 TDs and 22 Ints. He scored 16 rushing TDs over the last two seasons despite gaining only 96 yards rushing on 144 carries. Mason will need time develop as the backup QB for the Steelers.

Dan Bailey – This guy is one of the best kickers in the game. He’s made 88.2 percent of his career chances (186-for-211) with excellent success from 50 yards or longer (27-for-40). Dan averaged six attempts from long range over the last six years. Bailey missed his first two extra points in his career in 2017 pushing his mark to 97-for-99 since the NFL moved back the extra point mark in 2015. Last year Dan missed four games hamstring issue, which led to his worst season in the NFL (75 percent success rate on 20 field goals). As much as like his leg, Bailey plays in an offense that has success running the ball in for TDs in the red zone. Nice steady kicker with the leg to deliver a top 10 season if the Cowboys’ offense can regain its scoring ability.

WR James Washington – In each season at Oklahoma State, Washington showed growth in his production (28/456/6, 53/1087/10, 71/1380/10, and 74/1549/13). He scored 33 TDs over his last 39 games with ten or more TDs in each of his last three years. Over four seasons at college, James caught 226 passes for 4,472 yards and 39 TDs while gaining an amazing 19.8 yards per catch. Washington is a high cut WR with long legs, which leads to him having deceptive deep speed. He catches the ball with his hands while offering a plus release off the line. His opportunity won’t be high out of the gate in his rookie season, but he’ll be a better fit on the outside than Martavis Bryant was in 2017. The Steelers passing game runs through Antonio Brown, but they need/want a deep burner on the opposite side of him on the field. Last year Bryant caught 50 passes for 603 yards and three TDs on 84 targets for Pittsburgh, but he caught only seven passes for yards or more and one pass over 40 yards. I expect James to double that output in the deep passing game. Washington needs to improve his route running to develop into a complete WR. I’ll set his bar at 50+ catches for 750+ yards and 5+ TDs.
