RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Offensive lineman Justin Britt was part of a no-huddle offense in college at Missouri.

So simply taking a play call in the huddle and getting lined up correctly during the first day of the Seattle Seahawks rookie minicamp Friday was just another thing Britt had to try and remember.

Britt was the second pick Seattle made in last week’s NFL draft, taken with the final pick of the second round. Britt played left tackle his final season at Missouri but the Seahawks intend on having him challenge Michael Bowie for the starting spot at right tackle.

The highlight of the first rookie practice was quarterback Keith Price’s 63-yard pass to second-round pick Paul Richardson sprinting past safety-turned-cornerback Eric Pinkins during team drills.
