No surprise: Rookies once again dominated the Seahawks’ preseason opener.
Last year it was draft picks Tyler Lockett and Frank Clark. This year it was undrafted rookies Trevone Boykin, Tanner McEvoy and Tyvis Powell.
After Boykin had left the game in the third quarter, he came back in the fourth and rallied the Seahawks to a 17-16 win in Kansas City with no time left. His 37-yard scoring pass to the 6-foot-6 McEvoy set up fellow UDFA Troymaine Pope’s winning two-point run.
It made Boykin and McEvoy the big standouts in Seattle’s first preseason game, along with Powell, pass rushers Cassius Marsh and Frank Clark, running back Christine Michael and the starting offensive line.
