Seahawks mock game recap: Drew Lock, Tariq Woolen have strong performances

The Seattle Seahawks had their annual intersquad scrimmage Saturday at Lumen Field, with an attendance of roughly 7,000 fans (the same time as the Mariners’ win over the Angels at T-Mobile Park, mind you). Seattle’s Navy Blue team beat Team Action Green by a score of 17-13, but the score is much less important than the performance of the players.

Both Drew Lock and Geno Smith went on to lead the first and second team offenses, with Jacob Eason having what was apparently a very forgettable cameo leading the third team. It seems as if the 1v1s weren’t going to materialize and some of it wasn’t practical anyway due to players being sidelined with injuries.

Unofficially, Lock was 19/27 and Smith was 11/20. Both quarterbacks led touchdown drives on their respective opening drives (albeit against the second-team defense). Rashaad Penny and Kenneth Walker capped off the scoring drive by reaching the end zone. Here’s a look at Walker and that ability to cut to the outside so fast.

Lock threw a touchdown pass later in the day to Cody Thompson (more on that later). He also threw a nice completion to seventh-round pick Dareke Young, and here’s a look at that highlight.

Geno’s day started out hot but cooled down considerably as the afternoon wore on, but at his best he evidently had good pace with DK Metcalf.

Rookie tackle Abe Lucas started with the 1, with presumptive leader to fill the right tackle spot Jake Curhan playing left tackle with the 2. Everyone else projected to start (Charles Cross, Damien Lewis, Austin Blythe and Gabe Jackson ) had first-team action today.

Now I must reveal that Field Gulls were not present at this game and the live broadcast the Seahawks had was just warm-ups, so our eyes and ears were essentially the veteran reporters in attendance. The name that repeatedly came up on defense was rookie CB Tariq Woolen, who was “hit” for a touchdown by Thompson, but apparently it was a pretty crazy play.

But he had other shining moments!

Of course, with virtually no tackling and the fact that this is just a scrimmage, don’t read too much into what happened this afternoon. Unfortunately, we had an injury and it was an elbow problem with LJ Collier, and at this time there are no updates on his status.

Seattle’s preseason begins at the Pittsburgh Steelers on August 13 at 7 pm ET/4 pm PT. And before I close this, say hi to Richard Sherman!
