Shaquem Griffin's performance at weakside linebacker made a favorable impression on Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll.
Sure, it was just over three days of non-contact practices, but positives are important for the Seahawks' fifth-round pick of the 2018 NFL Draft.
"He looked very comfortable, very natural," Carroll said of Griffin, via The Seattle Times. "He has a sense already for scheme and terminology. The position is the right spot for him, it looks like. We can be aggressive and use his speed."
Griffin's speed is an asset within the Seahawks' defensive scheme. The 6-foot, 227-pound Griffin recorded a 4.38 time in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine.
"He's already shown some sense in the passing game and he had a couple really good plays adjusting to zone coverage and man coverage and things we've already seen," Carroll said. "So those were good things to take away. And we can't really get a feel at all for special teams but we know that that's going to be a factor so we're excited about that."
