–DE Frank Clark (+2.5) ended his impressive preseason with another great game. He was extremely disruptive in run defense early, amassing three run stops. Later, after initially being fairly average as a pass rusher, he showed up with a sack-fumble that turned into a defensive TD. In this game he solidified his position as one of the standout rookies this preseason.
–WR Tyler Lockett (+1.4) also gave notice this may be another good draft for Seattle. For a player who only played six snaps, he graded impressively. On those few plays, his impact was noticeable with two targets netting two catches and 77 yards.
–Another defensive standout for the Seahawks on Thursday was DT Jordan Hill (+2.4). Although he did not have much impact in pass rush, he had an excellent night in run defense. By the end of the game he tallied two tackles, an assist, and two defensive stops.
