Walter Thurmond is something of an unknown, playing in 5 games the past two seasons due various injuries.
Thurmond suffered a broken leg 2011 and broke the same bone again in 2012, along with two pulled hamstrings.
Now healthy, He is showing the talent that caught the Seahawks eyes when they drafted him in the fourth round from Oregon in 2010.
The Seahawks are all set at outside cornerback with Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner, but Thurmond could push veteran Antoine Winfield for the nickel back position.
Coach Pete Carroll said Thurmond can handle all three corner spots:
“That is a great position for us,’’ Carroll said, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times.
“We love to have that kind of depth there. We have a lot of high hopes and high expectations and also in the punt-return game, too. He wants to be part of that thing, too, and will be battling with Golden (Tate) in the preseason.’’
“I feel personally that I am an elite player. I just fell short of circumstances with playing this brutal game we call football, and that is a consequence of playing. Both of my injuries were pretty serious — it wasn’t like it was some soft tissue just lingering. Those injuries made me strong. But that’s in the past, and now we are here today’’
