Which Seahawk is most impacted by Percy Harvin?

Bruce Irvin’s suspension, Josh Portis’ arrest and Cliff Avril’s injury overshadowed what likely would have otherwise been the leading story from the Seahawks’ first OTA on Monday.

That marked the first time media members got to see a practice featuring Percy Harvin, the headliner of Seattle’s offseason additions.

Harvin’s unique athletic ability was a main reason the Seahawks paid through the nose to acquire him, first in draft-pick compensation and then with a hefty new contract. According to Dave Boling of The News Tribune, Harvin appeared as advertised on Monday.

“He has a turbo gear. He pushes that button and it’s warp speed,” Boling told “Bob and Groz” on Wednesday.

“A couple of times he just blew past people or then in small space executed a move that just left Byron Maxwell just like, ‘Where is he?’ – grabbing air,” he added.

That conversation shifted to the players who will be most impacted now that Harvin is on board. Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby share their thoughts in the video below.
