The Seattle Seahawks are a relatively young team, but they are led by players that have experience. Still, rookies are always an intriguing group of players because they represent athletes that will push the vets and potentially make key contributions once the season starts.
For the Seahawks, the reality is that rookies may have a hard time winning jobs on a team that is very deep and short on open positions. However, it doesn’t change the reality that Pete Carroll loves competition.
It may seem like it creates an atmosphere of instability, but it appears as if Carroll wants every player to always be aware that there is someone else vying for their job. Therefore, rookies are going to be given some reps, if only to motivate the veterans.
Seattle took a lot of players in this draft, and there will be some interesting position battles as the summer unfolds. Who will actually get a job?
With all of this in mind, here are the best rookie storylines at the Seattle Seahawks’ OTAs.
