Golden opportunity: Tate breaks through

Seahawks, Golden Tate waited 2-plus years for breakthrough
By Danny O'Neil | The Seattle Times

Receiver Golden Tate is "finally" playing like Seattle expected. That's a storyline that is pretty much agreed upon as he has six touchdown catches this season, but when you look at his numbers compared to the rest of the receivers drafted in the second round, his first two seasons weren't all that sub-par.

Tate was one of 51 wide receivers to be drafted in the second round from 2000 to 2011. When you look at his numbers compared to the average of those other receivers, it's pretty telling:

First yearRec.YardsAvg. catchTDs
Average 2nd round pick (2000-2011)27.2358.913.22.06
Golden Tate, 20102122710.80
