Monday Round-Up: ESPN Gives Early Impressions Of All 32 First-Round Draft Picks

ESPN reporters gave their early impressions of 2018 rookies. 


Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Monday, June 4 — about your Seattle Seahawks:

​Rookie Early Impressions 

After rookie minicamp and a few days of Organized Team Activities, ESPN NFL reporters across the globe have gotten an early look at the 2018 rookie class and how they've begun adapting to the professional level. Each team reporter gave an early impression of where the first-round pick from the team they cover is at during the process.

For Seahawks rookie running back Rashaad Penny, here's what ESPN's Brady Henderson had to say:

"Maybe the biggest hurdle Penny faces as he tries to pry the starting job from Chris Carson is getting up to speed in pass protection. The Seahawks have made no secret of the fact that Penny has a ways to go in that part of his game, and there's only so much that can be gleaned about his progress right now since contact isn't allowed during OTAs. Training camp will provide a better setting to gauge how ready Penny is to save Russell Wilson from blitzing defenders. For now, he's working behind Carson, who's still the most physically impressive of Seattle's running backs."
