Seahawks Tight End John Carlson Set For Break Out Season!

Published on August 10, 2009 by     Seahawk Fanatic

John CarlsonThe facts are the facts, and the fact of this matter is 2nd year TE John Carlson could be set to have a break out year.

He has learned the Offense very well from Receivers coaching staff, he is the most noticable player after the first 10 practices this training camp next to T.J. Houshmanzadeh and he’s shows a remarkable presence on the field when it is time to catch balls and show what you can do with the ball and after the catch.

I have no doubts that if the Seahawks can win 7 games this year that John Carlson will be looking at a breakout season with very good numbers, good enough to see a shot at the Pro Bowl! The NFL took notice of him last year and the future only looks brighter for the Seahawks and John Carlsons future in the NFL.

With a receiving core that looks very healthy John will be a very vital part of second and long or possibly third and 4 type downs where Coach mora has shown his tendency in the past with no name TE, now in Seattle he has a TE he can count on.

John Carlson. The team’s second-year tight end – and leading receiver in his rookie season – is so consistent that he turns in “player of the day” efforts almost every practice.

This morning, in a practice filled with big and even odd plays, Carlson again flashed repeatedly. He got behind safety C.J. Wallace in a 9-on-9 drill to take a deep pass from No. 4 QB Jeff Rowe. In the 7-on-7 drill, QB Matt Hasselbeck went to Carlson twice in the first four snaps – once over the middle and also in the flat.

But Carlson’s best play came after Seneca Wallace stepped in for Hasselbeck in the 7-on-7 drill. Running a route across the middle from left to right, Carlson fought off middle linebacker David Hawthorne and then slid back to the left to catch the pass from Wallace.

All in a day’s work for Carlson. Again.

“John is special,” strong safety Deon Grant said. “And the really good thing about it, he’s a humble special person. He likes to work. He runs great routes. He’s got good speed. And he’s got great hands.”

Speaking of those hands, Grant added, “He has some of the best hands for a tight end since like Wesley Walls and Shannon Sharpe. Like I said, John is special.”
