RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Russell Wilson stepped in behind center for the first minicamp of his professional career on Friday and never left.
The Seattle Seahawks are making sure they get a long look at Wilson this weekend while the Seahawks’ veteran quarterbacks are not around.
Most of the attention during the first day of Seattle’s rookie minicamp was centered on Wilson, the talented, but undersized quarterback the Seahawks took in the third round of the NFL draft last month. And Wilson got plenty of focus as he took all the snaps during the team portions of Friday’s session.
Along with Wilson, another standout on Friday was first-round pick Bruce Irvin, who showed flashes of the speed that saw him climb draft boards into the middle of the first round.
