Rookie Minicamp

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 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 has his camp wrap story.

Mike Sando of 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, 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.

Practice number one of the Seahawks’ 2013 rookie minicamp is underway, and we bring you a quick rundown of the 67 players that make up this weekend’s roster.

It’s a pretty crowded list, and as you can see below, some players have been assigned numbers for the weekend that are currently in use by players on the Seahawks’ active roster. The rookie minicamp roster includes drafted players, undrafted rookie free agents who have signed and agreed to terms with the club, as well as 38 individuals who have been invited to participate on a tryout basis.

One of the notable players present on a trial basis this weekend is the 6-foot-7, 281-pound former professional basketball playing tight end Darren Fells, who was released by the club just two days earlier.

Rookie minicamp round-up: Day one

Good morning, and welcome to day one of the Seahawks’ rookie minicamp.

Rookies trickled into Virginia Mason Athletic Center throughout the afternoon yesterday for team physicals, player head shots, and administrative meetings. This morning, they’ll get in a round of offensive and defensive meetings and participate in a walk-thru before hitting the fields adjacent to the shores of Lake Washington for a 1:30 p.m. practice. Saturday’s practice will start at the same time – 1:30 p.m. – and Sunday’s session is slated for an 11:30 a.m. start.

Before all that gets going, we have some morning links for you previewing what to look for this weekend:

Eric Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune has his minicamp primer, posing five questions surrounding this year’s rookie class and crop of undrafted rookie free agents.

John Boyle of the Everett Herald has his camp preview, offering five things to keep an eye on at camp over the next three days.

Danny O’Neil of has his list of five things we’ll be trying to find out about this year’s group of rookies.

Mike Sando of breaks down NFC West rosters by position as rookie camps start for all four teams in the division this weekend.

Our Clare Farnsworth highlights Seahawks quarterback Jerrod Johnson, who despite not being a rookie, will do most of the throwing for this weekend’s camp.

Farnsworth also catches up with offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and defensive coordinator Dan Quinn on what the two will be looking for, and looking at, over the next three days.

And if you missed it last night, defensive lineman Greg Scruggs underwent ACL reconstruction yesterday for an injury he suffered prior to the 2013 NFL Draft.

We’ll be back with more after today’s practice and media availabilities. Until then, please have yourself a happy Seahawks Blue Friday.
