The Seattle Seahawks' organized team activities are underway and, for the first time in a long time, Russell Wilson isn't the team's starting quarterback. Instead, that honor goes to Drew Lock, whom the Seahawks acquired from the Denver Broncos in the package for Wilson back in March.

Lock is a clear downgrade from Wilson under center, but that doesn't mean he can't find success. In fact, he's already shown a connection with wideout Tyler Lockett during OTAs that could end up paying off as the 2022 NFL season goes on.

Here's a look at Lock connecting on a nice pass to Wilson during Thursday's workouts. It might only be practice, but Seahawks fans are likely happy that some chemistry is being formed.

Lockett has racked up 1,000-plus receiving yards in the last three seasons, giving Lock one of the best weapons he's ever played with. The same could also be said about DK Metcalf, who's averaged 1,056 yards in each of his first three NFL seasons.

Throw in head coach Pete Carroll's mind for the game and there's no excuse for Lock not to have his best season yet in 2022. It's the final season of the 25-year-old's rookie deal and with the 2023 NFL Draft being rich with QBs, failure to produce could put his NFL future in jeopardy.

Overall team success could be hard for Lock and the Seahawks to come by in 2022 as FanDuel Sportsbook is giving them +13000 odds to win Super Bowl LVII — tied for fourth-worst in the entire league.
