You might want to start paying more attention to Seahawks WR Ben Obomanu, who is quietly becoming more of a key cog in Seattle’s steadily improving passing game. Making the most out of back-to-back starting gigs, Obomanu caught four passes for 60 yards and gained 17 yards on a pair of end-arounds in the Seahawks’ Week 10 win over the Cardinals, and he followed that up with five catches for 87 yards and his third TD of the season in the Week 11 loss to the Saints. “They love him,” said one team insider of Obomanu, a former seventh-round pick in the 2006 draft whose value to the Seahawks is magnified by his quality work as the gunner in the team’s highly rated kick-coverage units. “It helps that he can play all three of the team’s WR positions (split end, flanker and slot receiver), in addition to coming to work every day and setting a great example. He’s a guy who just really gets it.”
