RENTON, Wash. (AP) - It shouldn't be a surprise that Jordan Hill and Jesse Williams are roommates during the Seattle Seahawks rookie minicamp.

Out of all the rookies participating this weekend, Williams and Hill have potentially the best chance of making the greatest impact for the Seahawks right away thanks to a unique set of skills each possess.

They both play defensive tackle and adding reinforcements along the defensive line of scrimmage was a priority for the Seahawks for much of the offseason. Hill was selected in the third round out of Penn State. Williams was taken in the fifth round out of Alabama. Hill's forte is his ability to put pressure on the quarterback from the inside. Williams' strength is his ability to eat up space and stop the run.
