Camp Carroll: Day Three
Under center: Russell Wilson took the snaps with the first-unit on the first day the team was in pads. It probably wasn't a coincidence that Wilson was the primary quarterback on this day, giving the coaches a chance to see the rookie on the day when everyone has a little bit of extra juice, flying around with the pads on.
Hit parade: Linebacker K.J. Wright had the two biggest hits of the day, first putting rookie Robert Turbin on his tookus during a run-defense drill and later knocking receiver Antonio Bryant to the deck after a reception. It was quite a hit Wright put on Bryant, but not enough to keep Bryant from making the catch.
Personnel-ity plus: Defensive tackle Alan Branch remained out with a lower leg injury. DL Jason Jones, CB Ron Parker and LB Matt McCoy also did not participate in drills. On offense, TE Anthony McCoy sat out the workout.
Catch a rising star: Ricardo Lockette continued what has been a very strong start to training camp, as he made a diving, juggling catch in the end zone on a long throw from Matt Flynn, and that was after he beat Brandon Browner on a deep ball thrown by Russell Wilson.
Kippy Brown, who coaches Seattle's receivers, was asked for an assessment of Lockette's training camp.
"Making progress," Brown said. "Making progress. Again, he's a guy who can sit there and tell you what everybody does now where he couldn't before. But we don't want to move him a lot because he performs better when we kind of keep him in one spot. But we could, and there will be times that we will."
