NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brett Bivens breaks down what he would personally like to see in preseason against the Denver Broncos. He wants to see a win, of course; but more importantly, he wants to see Tavaris Jackson running the second-string offense behind Russell Wilson. He also wants to see Robert Turbin get a whole lot more carries — especially with Christine Michael having back spasms — and more out of Luke WiIlson and Chris Harper.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger brings us some disappointing news from Seahawks land. Wide receiver Percy Harvin has announced he is having surgery on his hip and will miss 3-4 months. In the meantime, Sidney Rice, Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, Phil Bates, Chris Harper and Stephen Williams will fill in nicely.

From a couple missed plays, to the exceptional play of Brandon Mebane, to a bit of a scare when Marshawn Lynch came up holding his groin. It’s all here. P.S. Lynch was back a few minutes later, so nothing to worry about here.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Jonas Hyde talks about the logjam that is the Seattle Seahawks wide receiver position. He points out the company line is the addition of Percy Harvin will create better match ups for Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin, Sidney Rice & Zach Miller, and that the plan is for Tate to get the ball more than he did last season. Buckle your safety belts and put your trays in the upright position, watching 2013 unfold for the Seahawks will be nothing short of exciting.
Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his Seattle Seahawks offseason analysis. With the rookie additions of players like Luke Willson, Jesse Williams, Christine Michael and Chris Harper, the Seahawks are adding even more depth to an already scary depth chart.

ESPN Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth breaks down every rookie in training camp and what their roles could be with the team moving forward. The rookie class comprises Christine Michael, Jordan Hill, Chris Harper, Jesse Williams, Tharold Simon, Luke Wilson, Spencer Ware, Ryan Seymour, Ty Powell, Jared Smith and Michael Bowie.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his 5 depth chart positions that will up for grab when the Seattle Seahawks hit camp this year.

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson gives you five rookies that he expects to make an impact for the Seattle Seahawks in 2013. Players like Earl Thomas, Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner, Marshawn Lynch, and Kam Chancellor all give Seattle a shot at reaching another Super Bowl. And though the plethora of talent across the board is great for the direction the team is headed, it often creates a tough environment for rookies to really break out in. Watch for Jesse Williams and Chris Harper in 2013.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brett Bivens recaps the team’s seventh round pick, Ty Powell. Brett says most experts feel Seattle could look to him as a depth option as a situation pass rusher behind Chris Clemons, Bruce Irvin and Cliff Avril. Powell recorded 40 tackles, with 15 for loss, and 8.5 sacks during his senior season. Powell is the first player from the Arkansas school to be drafted in 30 years. Powell played defensive end, linebacker and safety at Harding.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brett Bivens recaps the team’s seventh round pick, Ryan Seymour. Brett says most experts feel Seymour’s versatility could be a key for his hopes of making a crowded roster with Paul McQuistan, James Carpenter, John Moffitt and J.R. Sweezy all returning at the position. The Seahawks selected Seymour with the pick they received when they sent Barrett Ruud to the New Orleans Saints last year.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brett Bivens recaps the team’s sixth round pick, Spencer Ware. Brett says most experts feel Ware is another running back the Seahawks have brought in who has a colorful history that includes suspensions. This one is drug related, not punching related, not gun related (Marshawn Lynch). Worst case scenario is that Spencer doesn’t make the team and Michael Robinson has a new fire lit under him.
