Good morning, and here’s what’s “out there” about the Seahawks for Monday, May 13, one day after the completion of their three-day rookie minicamp at Virginia Mason Athletic Center.

Jayson Jenks of the Seattle Times profiles quarterback Jerrod Johnson, who took snaps with the No. 1-offense throughout the weekend’s camp.

Dave Boling of the Tacoma News Tribune has his notes from the camp’s conclusion and takes a closer look at the impression Johnson made at camp.

John Boyle of the Everett Herald has five early takeaways as camp wrapped up yesterday, including the roles that drafted defensive tackles Jordan Hill and Jesse Williams are expected to fill.

Danny O’Neil of 710Sports.com highlights the two defensive tackles Hill and Williams, noting how the pairs conditioning level kept them a step ahead of the rest throughout the three-day weekend.Defensive Line

O’Neil also has a list of three things we learned and three things we’re still trying to figure out after the weekend’s camp.

Curtis Crabtree of SportsRadioKJR.com has his camp wrap story.

Mike Sando of ESPN.com has a short report and links on the rest of the teams in the NFC West, each of which closed out their minicamps yesterday afternoon.

Here at Seahawks.com, Clare Farnsworth has his camp-wrap story on the roles the drafted rookies will fill and his “Hawkville” blog focuses on the 6-foot-2, 202-pound cornerback Tharold Simon, drafted in the fifth-round out of LSU.

Team photographer Rod Mar has 57 photos from minicamp.

And finally, in honor of Mother’s Day yesterday, we compiled the Twitter well-wishes from Seahawks players to all of the hard-working, dedicated mothers out there, and Farnsworth caught up with mothers watching their sons out at the team’s minicamp, as the parents of each drafted rookie were invited out by coach Carroll and general manager John Schneider to spectate the team’s three-day workout.
