Tyler Lockett is a Top Three Wideout in the NFL

With their offense on a roll and the MVP frontrunner throwing him the ball, former Wildcat Tyler Lockett has established himself as one of the top three wide receivers in the NFL.

In 2015, his first year in the National Football League, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett was selected to the Pro Bowl and named to the 1st Team All Pro team. 

Since then, the former Kansas State Wildcat has done nothing but improve, and this season has established himself as one of the top three wide receivers in the National Football League. 

Tyler came from a long line of Kansas State stars, you might remember the names Kevin and Aaron Lockett from their time in Manhattan. However, in this only his fifth year in the NFL, he has already established himself as the best Pro Lockett in the families lineage. 

After finishing his college career at KSU with 3700 yards and 29 touchdowns, Lockett was drafted in the 3rd round (69th overall) of the 2015 draft by the Seattle Seahawks. 

In four plus years (72 career NFL games), Lockett 3500 yards and 32 touchdowns. His 3700 yards from scrimmage in that time ranks him amongst the top five in the NFL since 2015.

But, the 2019 season seems to be (at least thus far) his breakout season. Already in 2019, Lockett has 767 yards and six touchdowns. This puts him on pace for 1368 yards and 11 touchdowns this season. 

It would be difficult to place Lockett ahead of New Orleans Saints star wideout Michael Thomas, or Kansas City Chiefs speedster Tyreek Hill - but it could easily be argued that Lockett is currently the 3rd best receiver in the entire NFL. 

The way that he's playing right now, if he keeps it up for another 8-10 years in the league, Lockett could find himself as one of the top, if not the top, Wildcat ever to play at the professional level.
