Hawk Fans:

Which players that an opposing fan wouldn't necessarily know look to be gaining some real traction? Any UDFA or low draft picks coming in a surprising?


Benson Mawoya and Allen Bradford are the two that immediately come to mind.


Mayowa - DE or OLB?

Allen - ILB?

Mayowa is a LEO DE aka weakside end

NinerBuff: Pretty much. Mawoya will be at DE at the LEO/9-tech and Bradford is looking for playing time at MIKE next to Bobby Wagner.

I think that, if you are watching the game tomorrow, you will want to focus on the front seven in terms of UDFA/low draft picks if you want to get an idea of where that sort of competition is for Seattle. I would also bring up John Lotulelei at LB as a UDFA that the regime is excited about, as well as Jesse Williams (of course) at 3-tech.

FA sign up Stephen Williams will probably make some noise. He was an UDFA in AZ and they let him go, we picked him up before OTA's.

So, as an under the radar signing, this would probably qualify for me: an UDFA that cut by the freaking Cardinals.

I really really wanna see if all these rumblings about a much improved Kearse are true or not. If so, I will forgive him for his godawful appearances on the RRR.

Let's not forget that the Chargers will be playing many of their new acquisitions as well. Hence, our "newbies" won't be facing the best that the Chargers have to offer.

I saw Christine M. play his entire college career (he was on a rival team) and I believe that he is honestly "average" at best. Lynch is and will definitely be better, and maybe Michael can be a factor in year two or so. This year, I think he will contribute positively, but don't expect a game changer.

I'm excited to see our pass rush and Michael. Jeff Saturday said on ESPN, he thinks we are going to have an unbelievable pass rush with the guys we signed and already had.

New DL players; specifically Williams and Hill. Also want to see if Howard has made a real jump towards being a quality contributor.

For me it's all about the pass rush with the interior being the more pressing need.

As a secondary goal, the OL performance of the rookies to see if we picked up another late round Gem again.

Christine Michael

Quote:
You're going to see Christine Michael right off the bat," Carroll said. "I don't mind telling you that. I'm kind of anxious to see that myself."

Percy Harvin's absence leaves an opening at kickoff returner, and Michael – the running back Seattle selected out of Texas A&M – is going to get first crack. Cornerback Jeremy Lane and receiver Golden Tate are also considerations.


Expect a good deal of the carries to wind up in the hands of Michael on Thursday night.

"He's going to get a load," Carroll said.

I don't get this one. Most of the guys on the opposing coverage teams won't be on NFL rosters ever again. You see guys in the preseason all the time that return kicks back and get cut the next week.

Offense . . . RG Sweezy and Moffitt and TE Willson. All figure to play prominent roles is season. Also RB Michael to see if he could be the future.

Defense . . . DT's Hill and Williams and CB Thurmond.

True...they each had an excellent game. However, let's see if they can be consistent when Denver comes to town.
