Seahawk Coach Pete Carroll’s expectations on Rookie Camp
SEATTLE, WA —
Rookie mini-camp may seem like a formality to some, but to players who are suiting up for the first time with a NFL helmet and jersey, it’s like having the most important job interview of their life, or at least, a working job interview.
The third day of rookie camp gave new faces and a few returning rookies from last year, the chance to get reps in and show the coaches their stuff.
Pete Carroll said it was about physical ability and speed this weekend, not about scheme. 11 undrafted free agents and 11 draft picks from this year joined about three dozen other hopeful players during the past week. Carroll said, he was not disappointed in what he saw.
Carroll said, "Attitude was great. Camp is working out just the way we'd hoped and so we saw a lot of good things. I'm not coming out with a lot of negatives.”
Mike Tyson, Defensive Back said, “Oh it's amazing it's just a dream come true to come up here and be in the Seahawks to be a Seahawk actually and just do what I do, come out here and compete and by myself. That's the only thing I can do is come out here compete and be myself"
Next up for the Seahawks is the “organized team activities” those should take place later this month and into early June.
