(1090 The Fan) – The hype surrounding the Seattle Seahawks would lead most people to believe the 2013 class of rookies won’t necessarily make an immediate impact for the upcoming season.
However, we can never forget the most underrated rule in the NFL: depth matters. Todd Pheifer of the Bleacher Report lists five takeaways from this year’s minicamp — the biggest one being that magic word “depth.”
One of the takeaways Pheifer gets from minicamp is the depth at cornerback — particularly Tharold Simon. He says the fifth-rounder from LSU is the “type of tall corner that Carroll loves” and can fit well into the Seattle scheme. Simon will likely be competing with Walter Thurmond, Jeremy Lane and Byron Maxwell for playing time — that is if Simon can make the squad.
