Link: Winston Guy making early impact with Seahawks

When Danny Trevathan and Winston Guy were each taken in the sixth round of the NFL Draft this past April, anybody who followed Kentucky football had a pretty good idea the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks were getting a pair of steals.

Guy and Trevathan have delivered, showing what made them the top tacklers in the Southeastern Conference in 2011. Trevathan has battled injury over the last two weeks, but Guy is well-positioned to not only earn a roster spot, but play right away.

Danny O'Neil from the Seattle Times picked Guy out as a player to watch this season. Here's what he and Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll had to say:

"He just gets it," Carroll said. "He's a hitter. He plays the ball well. He's really fast. He's 216 pounds. Big kid. He's got a real knack for rushing the pass. He looks like a pass rusher when he's coming. He's really been a pleasant surprise."

Guy is a sixth-round choice, which means nothing is guaranteed in terms of a roster spot, and after he was conspicuously near the two punts that were deflected in Denver in the second exhibition game, I wondered if that would affect his chances of making the team.

Nope. He's going to be part of the Bandit package from the get go.

"He's in the starting group in Game 1, maybe the first third down of the season," Carroll said. "That's an amazing accomplishment for him, but he's got all of the right stuff, but he's still a pup."
