Dave Boling of The News Tribune provides an overview of some of the rookies who flashed at last weekend’s minicamp, including his thoughts on the much-talked about elevation of Russell Wilson to the starting quarterback competition.
Boling: The ball leaves his hand in a hurry and gets to where it needs to be quickly. Of some 500 plays over the weekend, the Seahawks only had to re-rack the offense one time to get the right play processed. So he has a surprising command of the huddle already.
He completed balls deep and wide, and as impressive, he has the touch and accuracy to find flaring backs in perfect stride.
He had a few balls tipped at the line on Friday, but fewer as the weekend progressed. Questions of durability and adaptation and performance against big-time defenders remain, but coach Pete Carroll said he’s already shown enough to be tossed into competition for the starting job.
