Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, August 16 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
At ESPN.com, Sheil Kapadia shares what he's seen from the Seahawks' 2017 draft class through two weeks of training camp. Here's how he evaluated a few of Seattle's first-year players:
Ethan Pocic, OL, second round (No. 58 overall):Most of his reps have come at right tackle with the second team, but the coaches continue to harp on Pocic's versatility. He can play center, guard or tackle. Pete Carroll said Pocic is pushing Germain Ifedi for a starting job, but at the very least, he'll provide a valuable backup option at multiple spots.
Shaquill Griffin, CB, third round (No. 90 overall):With Jeremy Lane sidelined, Griffin has gotten a lot of starting reps at the right cornerback spot and performed well. But there are going to be growing pains with any rookie cornerback -- specifically one like Griffin, who is learning a new technique. There's a chance that Griffin earns the starting job outright. But more likely, Lane will start on the outside, and Griffin will replace him when the team is in nickel.
Nazair Jones, DT, third round (No. 102 overall):He's an under-the-radar player to watch. Known mostly as a run defender, Jones has shown he can be disruptive as an interior pass-rusher. Against the Los Angeles Chargers, Jones (6-foot-5) batted a pass at the line of scrimmage, and a teammate came down with it for an interception. Jones looks like he'll be an important part of the defensive line rotation as a rookie.
