Shaquill Griffin, Chris Carson among Seattle's rookie standouts

A breakdown of the Seattle Seahawks' 2017 draft class and its progress after two weeks of training camp:

Malik McDowell, DT, second round (No. 35 overall): He's back in Michigan recovering after suffering a concussion and other injuries in an ATV accident. Though the team has not offered a specific timetable for McDowell's return, at this point it seems unlikely that he contributes during the 2017 season.

Ethan Pocic, OL, second round (No. 58 overall): Most of his reps have come at right tackle with the second team, but the coaches continue to harp on Pocic's versatility. He can play center, guard or tackle. Pete Carroll said Pocic is pushing Germain Ifedi for a starting job, but at the very least, he'll provide a valuable backup option at multiple spots.

Shaquill Griffin, CB, third round (No. 90 overall): With Jeremy Lane sidelined, Griffin has gotten a lot of starting reps at the right cornerback spot and performed well. But there are going to be growing pains with any rookie cornerback -- specifically one like Griffin, who is learning a new technique. There's a chance that Griffin earns the starting job outright. But more likely, Lane will start on the outside, and Griffin will replace him when the team is in nickel.

Delano Hill, S, third round (No. 95 overall): He's missed some time with an injury but played in Sunday's preseason game. Given the Seahawks' sudden depth at safety, it seems unlikely that Hill will play a prominent role as a rookie. He'll learn under Kam Chancellor and contribute on special teams.

Nazair Jones, DT, third round (No. 102 overall): He's an under-the-radar player to watch. Known mostly as a run defender, Jones has shown he can be disruptive as an interior pass-rusher. Against the Los Angeles Chargers, Jones (6-foot-5) batted a pass at the line of scrimmage, and a teammate came down with it for an interception. Jones looks like he'll be an important part of the defensive line rotation as a rookie.

Amara Darboh, WR, third round (No. 106 overall): Last week, he made a tremendous catch on a fade in the right corner of the end zone during practice. What the coaches really like about Darboh is his physical nature. A lot here depends on how serious Paul Richardson's shoulder injury is and how quickly Tyler Lockett can get to 100 percent. Most likely, Darboh will serve a backup/special-teams role.

Tedric Thompson, S, fourth round (No. 111 overall): It looked like he misplayed the 74-yard touchdown pass in the Seahawks' first preseason game. Thompson has been getting reps at free safety, but he's not the top backup there, it's Bradley McDougald. Thompson could be on the roster bubble come September, depending on how many safeties the Seahawks are willing to keep.

Mike Tyson, DB, sixth round (No. 187 overall): The Seahawks have been playing him at cornerback and like his potential there. But there are a lot of players ahead of Tyson. He has plenty to prove in the weeks ahead and will likely be on the roster bubble when the team cuts down to 53 players.

Justin Senior, OL, sixth round (No. 210 overall): He's been on the PUP list, and Carroll said Senior is dealing with knee issues. It doesn't look like he'll be a contributor in 2017.

David Moore, WR, seventh round (No. 226 overall): He's flashed at times during camp. Moore has an NFL body and has shown the ability to pick up yards after the catch. But it's a crowded position, and he might be most likely to land on the practice squad as a rookie.

Chris Carson, RB, seventh round (No. 249 overall): At this point, it'd be a surprise if he didn't make the team. Carson has looked great during practice, and though the numbers don't show it (seven carries for 19 yards), he performed well in the preseason opener. Carson had one long run called back because of an offensive line penalty, and he trucked a defender for one of two touchdowns. If Carson were a high pick, he'd be generating a ton of buzz. It'll be interesting to see what kind of role he can carve out for himself in the weeks ahead.
