For Day Two of my Seahawks’ training camp coverage, I wanted to spend more time with the offense. I tried to follow the skill positions and look more closely at the offensive line to see the combinations and potential lineups we might see in the regular season. Follow me on Twitter @SamuelRGold for my latest camp updates as I’ll be there tomorrow as well!
Here are my notes:
Training Camp Observations
- Russell Wilson was on fire today. He drilled passes all over the field hitting receivers in-stride. He had two crossing route passes to Amara Darboh and J.D. McKissic and also threw a nice seam to Tanner McEvoy.
- We saw a bit more consistency in the offensive line alignments today. George Fant and Luke Joeckel seem to work well together as do Mark Glowinksi and Germain Ifedi. Rees Odhiambo worked with the first team a bit at left guard, but I still think Joeckel has the edge. Oday Aboushi and Ethan Pocic seemed to pair well as second team right guard and right tackle, respectively.
My initial projection at OL is: LT George Fant, LG Luke Joeckel, C Justin Britt, RG Mark Glowinski, and RT Germain Ifedi. #Seahawks— Samuel Gold (@SamuelRGold) August 10, 2017
- There was an injury scare with Doug Baldwin after he caught a pass on the sideline and was tackled to the ground. He go up on his own accord and walked to the training room. As of writing this update, we have yet to hear news on his condition, but it looked like a lower right leg injury.
- J.D. McKissic continues to show his versatility. He received more snaps at punt returner and also wide receiver. I don’t think he can make the roster at running back. There is too much depth with Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls, C.J. Prosise, and Alex Collins. Plus Chris Carson looks good in practice, too.
- Austin Davis did not look good throwing. He held onto the ball too long and generally did not place his passes in-stride. Trevone Boykin, on the other hand, is looking amazing in second team reps. In this writer’s opinion, it is clear who the #2 is on the depth chart.
- Frank Clark was a full participant in practice today. He didn’t have the brace on his left knee that he had yesterday.
- Blair Walsh went 3-3 from distances of 30 yards, 40 yards, and a 50 yard kick to finish. The 30 and 40 yard kicks were right down the middle, but the 50 yard kick snuck inside the right upright. Overall, he had a good day of kicking.
