Based on the Seahawks’ depth at wide receiver, Chris Harper is facing what seems like an uphill battle to see significant playing time as a rookie.
But Harper, the fourth-round pick out of Kansas State, impressed coach Pete Carroll enough during the team’s rookie minicamp over the weekend to earn some looks with the starters once Seattle’s rookies and veterans are on the field together.
“He’ll get reps with those guys early on so we can see what he can do, and he’ll have no problem doing that,” Carroll told reporters. “We’ll do the same thing with [tight end Luke Willson] – those guys will get tossed right in with the first group.”
In the video below, Brock Huard and Danny O’Neil discuss the roles Seattle has in mind for Harper and Willson.
