Renton – With the start of rookie mini-camp today, we thought it would be a good idea to look back on last season to see how the 2012 rookies, who attended their first min-camp fared.

2012 rookies:

Bruce Irvin (1st) - 8 sacks

Bobby Wagner (2nd) -  140 tackles, was runner-up for NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Russell Wilson (3rd)  – Passed for 3,118, 26 TD, 10 INT, 100.0 QB rating.  Played in Pro-Bowl

Robert Turbin (4th) – Rushed for 354 yards and averaged 4.4 yards a carry.

Jaye Howard  (4th) – Was essentially a non-factor in the defensive line rotation

Korey Toomer (5th) -  The Idaho product was placed on the Seahawks practice squad.

Jeremy Lane (6th) - With injuries and suspensions to their secondary, he started three games and was terrific on special teams.

Winston Guy (6th) -  The Kentucky safety did not factor much, but did play a little in the Atlanta playoff game.

J.R. Sweezy (7th) – Was a starter off and on during the season.  Displayed enough qualities to earn praise from coaches.

Greg Scruggs (7th) -  Played in 11 games and recorded two sacks. 


2013 Rookies

Christine Michael (2nd)  - Running back from Texas A&M

Jordan Hill (3rd) – Defensive tackle from Penn State

Chris Harper (4th) – Big physical wide receiver from KansasState

Jesse Williams (5th)Alabama defensive tackle, who slipped because of a knee issue.

Tharold Simon (5th) – Tall, athletic, physical corner from LSU. 

Luke Wilson (5th) – Rice tight end, who played sparingly his senior year because of a ankle injury. However, consider a very skilled and highly athletic TE.

Spencer Ware (6th) – Played running back at LSU, however, did play fullback and that’s the position he’ll play with the Seahawks.

Ryan Seymour (7th) – Versatile lineman from Vanderbilt, who can play all five positions.

Ty Powell (7th) – Small, but fast defensive end out of Harding.  Fits the style of defensive ends that the Seahawks love.

Jared Smith (7th) – Played defensive tackle at New Hampshire, but he will play offensive line for the Seahawks, similar to what the team did last year with J.R. Sweezy.

Michael Bowie (7th) – Transferred from OklahomaState to Northeastern State in Oklahoma.  Plays tackle on the offensive line.
