CHAWK LINES -- Training camp new

The countdown is well underway, with camp starting in about two weeks. Let’s look at some pre-camp player reports from some of the local outlets:

Bob Condotta looks at the importance of first-round pick Germain Ifedi working out.

Thomas Rawls said he is aiming to be ready for the start of camp.

John Clayton thinks Alex Collins could challenge Rawls for carries.

Collins is among 710 ESPN’s 25 Most Intriguing Seahawks.

Others on that burgeoning list include Jeremy Lane, Jordan Hill and rookie Tyvis Powell.

Field Gulls looks at the third drafted running back, Zac Brooks.

Field Gulls also looks at the changing ways the Seahawks have used the SAM linebacker — the only spot that really is up for grabs on defense this summer.

Is versatile Brandon Cottom a wild card at tight end/fullback?

Field Gulls says running back could be the position that brings a couple of surprises on the final roster.

Sherman Smith talks to about his life, his career and his new stable of young running backs.

NFL Network previewed the Seahawks in its camp countdown. One defensive coordinator told Steve Wyche that the Hawks are so poor at pass protection that — without Russell Wilson’s elusiveness — “it would be a piranha party in the pocket.”

The Seahawks are the best-positioned team in the NFL for the next few years, according to an ESPN analysis. They certainly have the core of their team locked up for the next two or three years.
