The Seattle Seahawks started rookie minicamp on Friday, meaning that the team’s new additions were on the practice field for the first time. In addition to the team getting its first chance to see how they perform, it also means all the new faces also now have numbers assigned to them as well.

The numbers assigned to rookies are as follows:

  • First round draft pick Rashaad Penny, RB: 20
  • Third round draft pick Rasheem Green, DE: 94 (This does not seem to bode well for Malik McDowell, but see the note below)
  • Fourth round draft pick Will Dissly, TE: 88
  • Fifth round draft pick Shaquem Griffin, LB: 49
  • Fifth round draft pick Tre Flowers, CB: 37
  • Fifth round draft pick Michael Dickson, P: 4
  • Fifth round draft pick Jamarco Jones, T: 73
  • Sixth round draft pick Jacob Martin, DE: 59
  • Seventh round draft pick Alex McGough, QB: 5

And for the undrafted free agents:

  • Emmanuel Beal, LB: 43
  • Tanner Carew, LS: 47
  • Poona Ford, DT: 97
  • Marcell Frazier, DE: 58
  • Jason Hall, LB: 46
  • Khalid Hill, FB: 40
  • Warren Long, LB: 48
  • Brad Lundblade, C: 61
  • Marcus Martin, FB: 34
  • Skyler Phillips, G 72
  • Jake Pugh, LB: 52
  • Caleb Scott, WR: 10
  • Ka’Raun White, WR: 8
  • Taj Williams, WR 15
  • Eddy Wilson, DT: 60

For now, the Seahawks roster online still lists both J.D. McKissic and Penny as wearing number 20, as well as both McDowell and Green assigned to the number 94, with both Ford and Marcus Smith II assigned to 97. I’ll keep an eye on these as things develop, but as is always the case with the Seahawks rookie minicamp, the team is reportedly bringing in dozens of players for tryouts, and there is likely to be a ton of bottom of the roster churn.

Specifically, there are a handful of bottom of roster names who could easily be waived if the team feels one of the tryouts has greater potential to contribute, and the team could even consider moving on from some of its injured players. Specifically, with the cap space the team created on Friday with the release of Cliff Avril, the possibility now exists that the Seahawks could also waive Kam Chancellor and still remain under the salary cap. I’m not saying that is what I expect to happen, or that that is likely to happen, just that the cap situation makes it much more of a possibility now than it was just days ago.
