FootballOutsiders: Frank Clark has the potential to be great Once again K.J. Wright Jersey , FootballOutsiders has lended itself to SB Nation, answering five questions from each blog about their team. These questions and answers should slant towards the advanced analytics that FO focuses on, specifically in regards to DVOA. To find out more about the great work at FootballOutsiders, you should definitely be keen on their annual almanac, which is available now in the FO Store.On Monday, we talked about Thomas Rawls, Eddie Lacy, and the 2017 RB problemOn Tuesday Cheap Doug Baldwin Jersey , it was all about Brian SchottenheimerOn Wednesday: What is the future of OL evaluation?On Thursday, we talked about the narrative of Russell Wilson and Doug BaldwinToday, it’s a question of the progression of Frank Clark, arguably the most important piece of the Seahawks defense in terms of looking to the future.Q: Defensively, the Seahawks have lost a lot this offseason and that means that Frank Clark has become perhaps the key player to watch in 2018. We know that Bobby Wagner is special. We know K.J. Wright is great at what he does. We don’t know a lot about the other guys and suddenly Clark is one of the most veteran players on the defense and going into a contract year. Given his three-year progression from 2015-2017, what trends are you seeing? What potential do you see in him with an increase in snaps and as the number one guy to stop at the line of scrimmage if you’re an offensive coordinator/lineman? Bryan Knowles:Clark’s already passed the first test. When specialist pass rushers get a bigger and bigger workload, they can often become exposed – sometimes because defenses get too much film on them and can start countering their best moves, other times because they’re asked to play more run defense and other things that don’t match their skillset. Clark’s seen his defensive snap count rise from 323 to 682 to 740 snaps over the past three seasons Justin Britt Jersey , and he hasn’t really missed a beat. His stop percentage in both pass defense and run defense has remained roughly constant; he hasn’t been overexposed yet. His short-area quickness projects well to being the top edge rusher, but he’ll need to take another step forward if he wants to keep his pressure rate and stop percentage up against the best tackles in the league. He definitely has the potential to be a top edge rusher, and he’s made steps forward every season so far. Even though he’s an unknown quantity, I expect that he’ll at least have a solid season.Bobby Wagner, KJ Wright could return vs Cowboys The Seattle Seahawks have opened this season in arguably their worst shape since Pete Carroll took over in 2010. Doug Baldwin, KJ Wright, Bobby Wagner, Byron Maxwell Cheap Ethan Pocic Jersey , Dontae Johnson, DJ Fluker, Ed Dickson, J.D. McKissic, Kam Chancellor, Tre Flowers, and Jamarco Jones have headlined those injuries, but at least a couple of them could return next week to face the Dallas Cowboys.Carroll said on Monday morning that Wagner and Wright could return for the next one Duane Brown Jersey , a huge boost to the defense, which played well but looked slower than usual in their loss to the Chicago Bears.“Hopeful” is not nearly as good as “Probable” but it is better than OUT, which is what Baldwin appears to be. Wagner is hurting from a groin injury, Wright had his knee scoped, and Baldwin is recovering from a partially torn MCL. Fluker and Flowers seemed to be gametime(ish) decisions this week, so there’s likely hope they could return as well.Not good is the new injury to center Justin Britt. Backup Joey Hunt played 11 snaps this week in his place.
