Someone to keep an eye out for as a player possibly on the Seahawks’ radar is LSU return specialist Trindon Holliday. The 2009 NCAA 100 meter outdoor champion, Holliday was one of the fastest players in college football last season, and said he would like to run a 4.24 in the 40-yard dash this week, the same time Tennessee running back Chris Johnson ran two years ago.
Holliday is the only player invited to the combine as a return specialist, and also said he will stay and workout with the wide receiver group later this week after he catches punts and kicks with the specialist group.
Holliday said representatives from Seattle have talked to him here at the combine, and he also talked with folks from the Seahawks at the Texas vs. Nation game a few weeks ago.
At 5-foot-5, 162 pounds, Holliday is small. But he’s a compact guy who provides more pop than his size would lead you to believe. He played mostly running back in college, but says he can play receiver at the next level. Holiday’s speed would give the Seahawks return game some much-need punch.
