In addition to a concise account of his biography and professional achievements, here’s what you need to know about the Seahawks playmaker’s family and body measurements.
NFL Career Attainments
Management of the Seattle Seahawks, born September 28 and in 1992, is pleased with their decision to select Tyler Deron Lockett for the 2015 NFL Draft for obvious reasons. Aside from his good character, this lad is undeniably a first-class player.
Since joining the NFL after being drafted the 69th overall in the third round, Tyler has accomplished quite a lot. His rookie campaign ended with him becoming the second player in NFL history to accumulate a point-return touchdown, a kickoff-return touchdown, and no fewer than five touchdowns in a single season. He was also allowed to participate in the All-Star Game of the Year in the NFL and was appointed to the first team of the All-Pro and the PFWA All-Rookie Team. As of 2017, Mr. Lockett boasts 13 touchdowns, 137 receptions, 192 rush yards, 1,816 receiving yards, and a massive total return yard of 3,266 in his career in the league.
This guy had his college career with the Wildcats at Kansas State University. In his four years (2011 – 2014) in the Wildcats he became one of the best players in the history of the school, it is said that he set 17 school records. As one might expect, this earned him a handful of coveted accolades, including being named “Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Year” in 2011, and in the same year and 2014, Tyler Lockett was named to All America’s first team. In 2013 and 2014, he was also named to the Big 12 Special Teams of the Year; in those years (2013 and 2014), his name was also listed on the first-team All-Big 12.
It was in high school that Tyler began to assert himself as a remarkable footballer. As a student at Booker T. Washington High School in his native Tulsa, Oklahoma, Tyler Lockett was honored not only in soccer but also in basketball and athletics.
Tyler Lockett’s Family
One could rightly claim that football runs in the family of Tyler Lockett. The Seattle Seahawks’ Wide Receiver and Return Specialist is the son of Kevin Eugene Lockett, a former Wide Receiver/Point Return specialist and nephew of Aaron Lockett, who has made a name for himself as a Wide Receiver and Return specialist – yes, like Tyler.
While Tyler’s father is known for spending most of his professional career with the Kansas City Chiefs (1997 – 2000), his uncle did not limit his play to the National Football League, as he is also known for his time with the Ottawa Renegades (2004) and the BC Lions (2004 – 2006) of the Canadian Football League (CLF). In the NFL, he played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2000) before joining the San Francisco 49ers (2002 – 2003). Apart from Kansas City Chief, Aaron’s older brother (Tyler’s father) played for the Washington Redskins (2001 – 2002), the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2002, and the New York Jet the following year.
The brothers performed quite an unusual feat during their season, as Kevin received several honors, including his nomination at the Academic All-America in 1995 and 1996 and the All-Big 12 First Team Conference in 1996. The man was also the receptionist for the Big 12 Conference of the year. Similarly, Aaron was CFL’s Return Yards Leader in 2005 and an honorary member of the All-Big 12 Conference four times.
With all of the above, there’s no need to wonder where Tyler got his remarkable speed from, but here’s a bonus note – his mother Nicole Edwards was also an athlete. She flourished as a sprinter and basketball player, and Tyler would agree that she made an immense contribution to the great athlete he became. Tyler is not his parents’ only child, it is common knowledge that he has at least three siblings, including his brothers – Sterling, Jacob, and Jordan Lockett.
His Height, Weight, and Body Measurements
It is no surprise to a player of his stature that Tyler’s physical form is widely regarded as one of his weaknesses in this sport. Among other things, it is believed that his physique makes it difficult for him to fight physical cornerbacks, which in most cases leaves him the little opportunity and forces him to realign his routes. It has also been said from several quarters that his shape is the reason why he has not been able to establish himself in the league as a kick returner.
But then, regardless of Tyler Lockett’s physique, he proved beyond all doubt that he is an intelligent playmaker. He compensates for his stature and his unideal frame with his playing speed and his moves. The ‘Hawks’ wide receiver and return specialist is barely 10 inches taller than 5 feet and weighs 182 lb. While we have not yet received comprehensive information on his body measurements, we can confirm that his arm length is 0.76 m (30 inches) and he is handy, 8 3/8 in (0.21 m).
