Mon, Aug 26, 2013 01:14:00 PM

The Seahawks coaching staff has been impressed with rookie defensive tackles Jesse Williams and Jordan Hill.

Hill is working at both defensive tackle positions while Williams is playing tackle and end. Carroll said Williams will start playing nose tackle as well when they begin training camp next month. Both have gotten work with the first-team, though Williams has the better chance to contribute right away in the vacancy left by Alan Branch's departure.
