Seattle Seahawks wide receiver/returner Tyler Lockett and running back Thomas Rawls were named to the Pro Football Writers of America All-Rookie team on Tuesday.

Lockett finished second on the Seahawks with 51 receptions and six touchdown catches and was a dangerous threat in the return game. He earned All-Rookie nods as kick returner, punt returner and special teams player.

Selected in the third round out of Kansas State, Lockett twice was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Month. He set a franchise record for punt return yardage with 139 in the regular-season finale versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Rawls was named to the team despite missing the final three-plus games due to a broken ankle and playing a part-time role in six other contests. An undrafted free agent from Central Michigan, Rawls rushed for 830 yards, averaging 5.6 yards a carry, and had four 100-yard games in seven starts.
