So far, Harvin has practiced as a slot receiver, outside receiver, running back and kick returner. He sees similarities to how he was used under Bevell in 2009 and 2010 in Minnesota, and also has had some flashbacks to his time at Florida, where he was the X-factor in the Gators’ read-option offense. Seattle will hold its mandatory minicamp this week.
“We’re always trying to find unique qualities in our guys, and then hopefully express that in our play,” Carroll said. “He’s a different athlete, because not only is he so fast, but he’s steel strong. Just really tough, physical for a guy who only weighs 197 pounds.
“We hope to see him catch the ball on the move, so he can use his stuff. That doesn’t mean we give him the ball in the backfield just to hand it to him, we want to throw the ball to him all over the field. It’s not going to change our football team in terms of what we want to do, we’re just going to add him in and cut him loose, let him go.”
Harvin is such a great weapon to have, that no matter what the Seahawks line him up, he’ll give opposing defenses problems.
