Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Modest output as rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brooks posted 57 tackles and two pass breakups over 14 regular-season games (six starts) during the 2020 season. He added eight tackles in the wild-card loss to the Rams.

Brooks started four of the final five regular-season games, and he posted 28 stops among those starts. The rookie first-rounder didn't play more than 77 percent of the defensive snaps in any game. For a linebacker with 20 tackles for loss and three sacks during his senior season at Texas Tech, it was an underwhelming campaign for Brooks. The 22-year-old will look to improve this summer, and he could handle a larger role in 2021 if K.J. Wright, the team's starting strong-side linebacker, doesn't re-sign in Seattle.

Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Generates 11 stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brooks made 11 tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 17-12 loss to the Giants.

The rookie first-round pick made his third start of the season and logged a career-high 43 snaps on defense (77 percent). The Texas Tech product handled the uptick in reps admirably, tying Jamal Adams for the team lead in stops. Brooks is still adjusting to the NFL level, but Week 13 was a glimpse into the IDP value he holds when afforded the opportunity.

Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Rings up seven stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brooks made seven tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 37-34 loss to the Cardinals.

In his return from a two-game absence due to a knee injury, Brooks started at weak-side linebacker but was held to a pitch count, handling just 45 percent of the defensive workload. Nevertheless, he tied for third on the team in tackles and was used as a spy on Kyler Murray at times. Brooks stopped Murray for a one-yard loss at the goal line in the first half and stuffed him on third down for no gain in the fourth quarter. It speaks to Brooks' talent and athleticism that he can track and slow down Murray, and with his role expected to expand during upcoming games, it's worth keeping an eye on the rookie first-rounder in IDP formats.

Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Ready to face Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brooks (knee) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's divisional contest against the Cardinals, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Brooks' sprained MCL caused him to sit out Seattle's last two games, but he'll return in time to face Arizona. The rookie first-round pick stands to handle a starting role Sunday, when he'll face the difficult task of containing Kyler Murray and the Cardinals.

Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Won't face Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brooks (knee) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Brooks will miss his second consecutive game due to a lingering ankle sprain. The Seahawks have a bye scheduled for Week 6, so the rookie first-round pick's next chance to take the field won't come until Oct. 25 in Arizona.

Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Chance to play Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brooks (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

The rookie first-round pick missed last week with the sprained MCL but has a chance of retaking the field this weekend. Brooks was originally expected to miss multiple games after suffering the injury Week 3, so the Seahawks are likely to remain cautious to avoid rushing his return.

Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Ruled out for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Brooks (knee) won't play in Miami on Sunday, Stacy Jo Rost of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Brooks is expected to miss multiple games while rehabbing a sprained MCL, so this news comes as official confirmation of what was already expected. With Bruce Irvin already having been lost to a torn ACL, the Seahawks look set to rely on Shaquem Griffin and Cody Barton to form a starting rotation.

Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Expected to miss games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brooks suffered an MCL sprain in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Cowboys, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The rookie first-rounder made his first NFL start since Bruce Irvin (torn ACL) went down in Week 2. Brooks only played 14 snaps before exiting the game, however, and he'll likely miss a few games due to the injury. For the time being, Shaquem Griffin and Cody Barton will likely rotate into a starting role.

Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Questionable with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brooks is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys due to a knee injury, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

The Seahawks are already without Bruce Irvin (knee) for the rest of the season due to a torn ACL, so Brooks was handling the starting strong-side linebacker role Sunday before being forced out. As long as he's held out, Cody Barton and Ben Burr-Kirven could see increased defensive snaps.

Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Starting role on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brooks is expected to be the Seahawks' starting strong-side linebacker following news that Bruce Irvin will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Brooks narrowly lost a battle with K.J. Wright for the weak-side linebacker job to begin the season, but the rookie first-round pick appears locked into a starting role moving forward. While he might forfeit some snaps to Cody Barton, Brooks should be the primary backer with potential to play a three-down role. He's only played 15 defensive snaps this season and recorded one tackle.

Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Competing for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brooks will compete with K.J. Wright for the starting weak-side linebacker role during training camp, Brady Henderson of reports.

The Seahawks selected Brooks 27th overall in April's draft with the hope that he could eventually play all three linebacker positions, but the Texas Tech product will focus on securing one job for now. Through the first few days of camp, head coach Pete Carroll seemingly wants veteran Bruce Irvin to play strong-side linebacker on early downs and defensive end on passing downs, so that means Brooks' best chance at a starting job is to beat out Wright. That will be a difficult endeavor, consider Wright is coming off a career year where he racked up 132 tackles, 11 pass breakups and three interceptions. Brooks has impressive athleticism and physical specs working in his favor, but it wouldn't be surprise if he had to settle for a small rotational role to begin his rookie campaign.

Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Surprise pick by Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks selected Brooks in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 27th overall.

Brooks was a bit of a surprise pick as many expected him to go in the second round while LSU's Patrick Queen was expected to be the next linebacker off the board. That's not to say Brooks is a bad pick, however. He's an uber-athletic sideline-to-sideline linebacker who has an impressive resume. The Texas Tech product ran a 4.54 40-yard dash and checks in with 32 and 7/8-inch arms to help him make tackles and take on blockers. Brooks racked up 108 tackles in his senior season at Texas Tech and lived in opponents' backfields, tallying 20.0 tackles for losses. He'll be a disruptive presence for the Seahawks' linebacking corps.
