seahawks’ rookie mini-camp observations: ethan pocic, cyril grayson, fun rookies


here are six observations on seahawks' rookie mini-camp from beat reporters jayson jenks and bob condotta.here are three impressions from seahawks’ rookie mini-camp over the weekend from beat writers jayson jenks and bob condotta.first, from jenks:this could be a fun rookie class.i’m talking about their personalities, and let me say right away: that won’t matter if they don’t turn out to be good players. everyone knows that. but also, it’s rookie mini camp, in may, meaning we don’t have much to go on right now, not after three days of no-contact practice with a bunch of tryout players all over the field.we also don’t have much based only on the few minutes the players spent answering questions, but on first impression alone, they’re an interesting group.most read storiesunlimited digital a

an east tennessee woman claims that she was kicked out of her apartment complex’s pool over fears that her swimsuit would “excite” teenage boys who lived there.tori jenkins tells local news station wtvr that she was asked to leave the pool recently by a woman who complained about her pink one-piece bathing suit.“she basically told me that if i didn’t have kids, i wouldn’t understand,” jenkins explains. “if her kids were at the pool she wouldn’t want me in that swimsuit, how inappropriate i looked.”she claims the woman then told her she needed to either put on shorts or go to a part of the pool where she was less visible.tyler newman, jenkins’ fiance, first drew attention to the incident when he posted about it on facebook.“she was told that her body because it’s built more curvy than other






after 3 trades and 11 picks, here’s what the national media is saying about the


the grades are in: analysts seemed to like the seahawks' 11 picks. here's what they're saying.sure, the seahawks traded down again with their first pick. they went with a defensive lineman once they did pick rather than a cornerback or offensive lineman, as some were clamoring for. but the pick of malik mcdowell at no. 35 was widely praised in post-draft analysis. and, with the extra picks acquired from their three trades, seattle addressed those positions of need.it led to a largely positive reaction from the national media and draft experts. before you dig in, here’s what our bob condotta and jayson jenks thought of the seahawks’ draft.espndraft picksround 2 | pick 2 | no. 35 overalldt malik mcdowell, michigan stateround 2 | pick 26 | no. 58 overallol ethan pocic, lsuround 3 | pick 26 |






can seahawks and richard sherman make it work again? of course they can


star cornerback richard sherman leaving would push the seahawks farther away from their championship goal, not closer to it.with all the hot air, er, hot takes surrounding the richard sherman trade rumors, the key words to me were uttered by seahawks coach pete carroll, when he said from the owners’ meetings in phoenix, “i don’t see anything happening at all.” maybe that will change, but major trades in the nfl are extremely difficult to pull off, and very rare. besides, the departure of sherman would leave a gaping hole at a position that’s already lacking depth in seattle as a result of deshawn shead’s injury. even with a strong defensive-back draft, sherman leaving would push the seahawks farther away from their championship goal, not closer to it. instead, the key question seems obviou
