Video Exclusive:1st Day Of Seattle Seahawks Rookie Camp

Published on May 2, 2009 by     Seahawk Fanatic

“I was just doing everything on the go,” Curry said after the completion of Friday’s full team workout at the weekend’s three-day minicamp. “I had the basics down pat, but as far as the speed and all, I didn’t want to be out there thinking, so I was just flying around.”

Curry appeared to fit in well, but he acknowledged his head has been swimming since the Seahawks handed him a playbook after the draft and told him to dig in.

“I’ve spent 10-15 hours, just staring at it,” he said. “When I first got it, it was like reading Chinese. They gave it to me Monday and I was just looking at it, seeing if I was familiar with anything.

“I really caught on once they turned on the film and showed us what was going on. But when I first got here, I didn’t understand a bit of it. But I have a little grasp of the concept now.”

Apparently the new kid is a quick learner, however. Hill, who skipped the team’s previous offseason camp while in contract negotiations, marveled at the rookie’s awareness already.

“He’s smart,” said Hill, a four-year veteran. “A lot of the questions that (linebacker coach Zerick Rollins) was asking him in meetings, he was picking up just like that. I’m like, ‘Man, I didn’t even know that yet.’ On the field, he’s running with the first team and fitting right in. I think it’s going to be fun to watch and play with him.”

But for Curry, that process feels a bit foreign still. One day into the job, his head was swimming. And, yeah, he is aware that he’s a rookie despite his high-draft status and the big contract he’ll soon be signing.

“It’s like being a freshman in high school,” he said. “In college you can kind of squeeze your way in there and you get some leeway if you’re a ballplayer. Out here, no matter who you are, whether you were drafted or undrafted, everybody is treated the same. And I think that’s good for the team.”
