Seattle Seahawks Training Camp: Players to Watch

Published on July 20, 2010 by     

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS PLAYERS TO WATCH IN TRAINING CAMP

Running back Julius Jones: In two years in Seattle, Jones has failed to live up to high expectations when he signed a four-year, $12 million deal to replace Shaun Alexander two years ago. Jones has only averaged 681 yards a season his first two years in Seattle. And he now finds himself in a tough battle for the starting job with Justin Forsett and Leon Washington.

Linebacker Leroy Hill: The 27-year-old missed most of the team’s offseason workouts because the team chose to keep him away from Seahawks’ headquarters while he dealt with legal issues. Hill likely will be suspended for a game or two this season for violating the league’s personal conduct policy after receiving a sentence of 12-months probation for a marijuana drug possession charge in Atlanta. Hill also faces competition for his weak-side outside linebacker position from David Hawthorne on the field.

Wide receiver Mike Williams: After a year hiatus from the NFL, the former first round pick has been one of the major surprises during offseason workouts. Williams could be the big target Seattle is looking for in the red zone, but he has to prove he can stay in shape and make plays during preseason action once training camp starts at the end of this month.

Hot seat: Defensive end Lawrence Jackson has been a disappointment so far during his tenure in Seattle. Now in his third season, the former first round pick is hoping that reuniting with former head coach at USC Pete Carroll can rekindle his dominant play off the edge that he experienced in college. But he’ll have to regain his starting job first, with converted defensive tackle Red Bryant passing him up on the depth chart to claim the starting, strong-side end position during the offseason.
