Thursday Round-Up: What The Media Are Saying Before The Seahawks' Fifth Training Camp Practice

A daily link round-up of what's "out there" about the Seattle Seahawks.

Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Thursday, Aug. 4 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

What They're Saying About The Seahawks

Danny O'Neil at says the Seahawks' fiercest training camp competition is at wide receiver, "Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett and Jermaine Kearse are the top three receivers on the roster. Hard to imagine someone with Paul Richardson's speed not making the team. The fight to fill the remaining spot or two is going to pretty intense with players like rookie seventh-round pick Kenny Lawler, Kevin Smith and Douglas McNeil not to mention Deshon Foxx, who stood out through the first four days. But don't forget Kasen Williams. He is moving better than he has at any point since his sophomore year at Washington, when he caught 77 passes and appeared well on his way to living up to the sizeable recruiting hype that accompanied his arrival on Montlake. He suffered a broken bone in his leg the next year and really only now looks like he's back to being the athlete he was."

Sheil Kapadia at thinks the Seahawks could soon have an update on the status of Jimmy Graham and Thomas Rawls, who both started camp on the Physically Unable to Perform List, "When training camp started, coach Pete Carroll said the team would monitor the progress of RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) and TE Jimmy Graham (patellar tendon) in segments. Wednesday offered the first break in camp, so we'll find out Thursday if there's an update with either of these players. The offensive line depth chart is also worth keeping an eye on. Assistant head coach Tom Cable indicated we could see some mixing and matching. Will he allow the starting five to build some continuity? Or has he already seen enough to make a change?"

Bob Condotta at the Seattle Times offers a positional review of where the Seahawks stand through four days of camp, adding this on the backup quarterback job, "Jake Heaps, working with the third team behind Trevone Boykin, has had some nice moments, including a touchdown pass to Antwan Goodley that ended practice Monday. But Boykin remains the clear No. 2."

Dave Boling at the Tacoma News Tribune says this year's rookie class looks like the Seahawks' most talented group in years, "This 2016 draft class looks like the most talented, top to bottom, since the 2012 haul that was highlighted by the conscription of Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner."

And Stephen Cohen at projects the Seahawks' 53-man roster.

Tweet Of The Day

Today's "Tweet of the Day" comes from Seahawks wideout Jermaine Kearse, who shares his excitement to be back at it again on the practice field.
