Someone asked about what the Seahawks have in terms of draft picks for next season. Here's a site that seems to answer that question:
How about some updates on players on our PS, hurt players, and others...like H. Green, Babin, and (tho Wyms is playing a little) how is he fitting in too? Maybe someone can tell us why Joppru is still on the inactive roster and Newton is still on the PS? How is Hobbs doing?
Howard Green: He's only been around a short while and it's hard to say. He did have a two tryouts with the team (one in September and then last December) before joining up this time. He's a big body who needs to get into shape and learn the scheme. He was inactive against the Rams so it sounds like both are still needing work.
Never miss a local story.
Jason Babin: Got into his first game as a Seahawk on Sunday vs. the Rams. Babin, a former 1st-round pick by the Texans, was acquired by the team just before the season for S Michael Boulware. Against the Rams he did not have a tackle. What I've seen from him in practices is a guy who has some speed, especially tearing up Pork Chop in pass plays. However, he's a smallish end – listed at 6-3, 267 – so playing the run might be an issue.
Ben Joppru: Right now, TE Joppru is a valuable member of the special teams. Nate Burleson credited him for making a crucial block on his 91 yard TD vs. the Rams. He has yet to catch a pass in five NFL seasons but that's misleading because three of those years he was on IR and last year he was only active for Seattle for 5 games. In practice he shows some decent pass catching ability and he had a good career at Michigan, breaking a school record for TEs in his senior year. Might get more action if Pollard's injury keeps him out longer than hoped.
Joe Newton: The big TE from Oregon State is still on the practice squad. From what I've seen he's done nothing spectacular but that could be just because he's on the scout team and your chances are limited.
Kevin Hobbs: Again, it's hard to say because Hobbs has played so little this season to get a reading on. In practices, he's going at less than full speed on the scout team so that makes it tough there, too. I think he's probably the bubble and would be expendable once Josh Wilson is pronounced 100 percent but don't count on him relinquishing a roster spot after what happened last year to the Seahawks' DBs.
