Danny O’Neil and Brock Huard of 710Sports.com discuss just how far the Seahawks’ offensive line has come over the last few years
Good morning, and here’s what’s “out there” for today, Monday, June 24, about your Seattle Seahawks:
Danny O’Neil of 710Sports.com takes a close look at the club’s linebacker position.
We have the podcast from quarterback Russell Wilson’s Saturday conversation with John Clayton on 710Sports.com’s John Clayton Show embedded for you below:
NFL.com Around the League writer Gregg Rosenthal ranks wide receiver Percy Harvin as the best slot wideout in the League.
NFC West blogger Mike Sando of ESPN.com checks in on the defensive secondary of each team in the division, calling the Seahawks foursome of Brandon Browner, Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas, and Kam Chancellor arguably the best in the NFL.
Sando also has his list projecting the top 10 quarterbacks for 2016 and three of the four quarterbacks in the division made the cut. Seahawks signal caller Russell Wilson landed at No. 3 on his list, the San Francisco 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick at No. 5, and the St. Louis Rams’ Sam Bradford at No. 10. It’s an ESPN Insider feature, but here is Sando’s snippet on Wilson, “Wilson has shown he can succeed from within the pocket as a shorter quarterback. He finished his rookie season with a 21-8 ratio of TDs to INTs from inside the pocket and a 5-2 ratio outside it. Wilson led the NFL in both passer rating (120.3) and Total QBR (83.9) over the final eight games of the 2012 season. More scrambler than pure runner, Wilson avoided big hits even though he held the ball longer than any quarterback (4.1 seconds before the throw on average). He will be tougher to defend with Percy Harvin drawing attention from opposing defenses.”
Here at Seahawks.com, Clare Farnsworth chats up some of the Seahawks rookies on the team’s offseason program, which finally came to a close for the first-year players last week.
And we also have photos from the weekend’s Family Football Fest get together at CenturyLink Field.
