Wednesday notes: Tate fined, Harvin not practicing yet, and more | Seahawks Blog | Seattle Times

— Coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin won’t practice today and said again that he is “day-to-day” with no specific date set for a return.

Five offensive tackles were taken in the first 20 picks of this year’s NFL draft. So far, none are living up to expectations. Eric Fisher, taken first overall, has been a mistake magnate in Kansas City. He’s shown flawed technique too many times, both in run blocking and pass protection.
