The Seahawks have undergone a number of changes over the last year, including parting ways with super-star linebacker Bobby Wagner, who leaves big shoes to fill in Seattle. The man tagged to do just that is linebacker Jordyn Brooks as he enters his third season in the NFL.

Around the NFL writer Nick Shook even believes Brooks could earn himself a first-time Pro Bowl nod this year for his efforts.

"With the current state of Seattle’s quarterback position following the departure of Russell Wilson, I expect the Seahawks’ defense to be on the field more often in 2022. … Brooks has been anointed as the defensive-leader replacement for Bobby Wagner, so he should get plenty of opportunities to prove his worth this season.

"Brooks seemed like he was always in position to make a timely play last season, and I believe his trajectory puts him on a path toward a Pro Bowl berth. That might come in 2022." 

Seattle has high expectations for Brooks, who was selected in the first round of the 2020 NFL draft out of Texas Tech. Wagner will undoubtedly be keeping an eye on his replacement when the Seahawks face the Rams this season.
