Three more observations from the Seahawks' sixth practice of training camp: 1) Left tackle Duane Brown, he of the new three-year extension, is consistently the best-performing offensive lineman in the one-on-one pass-rush drill. Today he stonewalled Barkevious Mingo on consecutive reps. Right guard D.J. Fluker also had a good day in that drill; 2) Quarterback Alex McGough, who's competing with Austin Davis for the backup job to Russell Wilson, has been as up-and-down as you'd expect from a rookie seventh-round pick. The "down" today included a fumble. It's a good reminder that a strong performance in rookie minicamp -- he was the standout there -- only means so much when once the veterans show up. On the positive side, McGough's mobility has been impressive; 3) J.D. McKissic, the smallest of the five tailbacks on Seattle's roster (listed at 5-10, 195), delivered one of the biggest hits so far in camp when he lowered his shoulder into free safety T.J. Mutcherson (5-10, 197) just before stepping out of bounds. Mutcherson appeared fine and made a nice pass-breakup a few plays later. McKissic took over the third-down role last season and is competing for a roster spot this year. His case is helped by the fact that he can play wide receiver and also has return ability.

In an interview with 710 ESPN Seattle, Seahawks general manager John Schneider says outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo was "pretty much" the team's No. 1 priority among outside free agents. Mingo projects as Seattle's starting strong-side linebacker in base packages and an edge rusher on passing downs. Schneider said Mingo will rush the passer more than he's been asked to by his previous teams: "He's such a good athlete, people have been putting him in space and letting him run around and stuff instead of letting him put his hand on the ground as much as we're going to let him do."
