3. Tough to bring down
Having a player who is not the fastest on the field may not jump off the page as the sort of player who will deliver a positive impact to the Seahawks. But from the moment Will Dissly takes possession of the football and becomes the ball carrier, his impact immediately takes center stage. In short, he is a mess to tackle.
That may not seem all that important, but for a possession receiver who needs to move the chains, it immediately changes the way defenses look to cover him. If they go with a linebacker, his size and speed will give him an advantage to getting the ball. If they go with a defensive back, good luck trying to bring him down.
The NFL is a game of inches. Dissly places tremendous pressure upon defenses to hit the right coverage each and every play. If they fail, either Dissly or Wilson will make them pay for the mistake instantly.
