Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today – Friday, March 25 – about your Seattle Seahawks.
Paul Richardson and Russell Wilson Get Back to Work
Injuries cost Paul Richardson almost the entire 2015 season, but the Seahawks receiver wants to make sure everyone knows he is doing well and ready to make his mark in 2016. In a video posted on his Instagram account, Richardson is shown running routes and catching passes from quarterback Russell Wilson, and it certainly looks like the hamstring injury that ended his 2015 season is no longer an issue.
Richardson, who tore his ACL in the 2014 postseason, began the 2015 season on the physically unable to perform list, and after finally making it back in Week 10, he injured his hamstring and ended up on injured reserve.
Talking to reporters at this week's NFL annual meetings, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll made it clear they're excited about the former second-round pick's future, and as the video shows, Carroll said Richardson is "in great shape. He just had to overcome a severe hamstring, but he's ready to go.
"That's an exciting part of our game," Carroll said. "He was really coming on, we all saw him starting to emerge and then he got banged up again. But hopefully he'll be able to have a good, steady process of adding to the team. He's a deep threat, he's a great catcher, he's a route-runner, so it's kind of like we pick up a whole bonus guy coming to us, and (we have) really high expectations for him coming in."

A'Shawn Robinson, DT, Alabama
Robinson could last a little longer than expected due to his inconsistent motor and lower-body stiffness. But Robinson's raw ability is undeniable, and he appears unblockable at times. Plus, he comes with great durability, playing in all 43 games during his Alabama career. Any team that takes him in the first round will placing a large bet on its defensive line coach's ability to maximize Robinson's unique skill set.
56. Seattle Seahawks: Derrick Henry, RB, Alabama
This is a straight-line explosive back, and you see it on tape. Henry has a ridiculous size-speed combo, running a 4.54 40 at 247 pounds. His game is really about getting downhill. He's a bulldozer when he gets going.
