With the Seahawks struggling mightily on the defensive line during 2019, even more attention was put on defensive end L.J. Collier, the team’s first-round pick that year, as he was rarely on the field and when he did play, he failed to make much of an impact.

Heading into the 2020 season, Collier will look to show why Seattle was right to make him a first-round selection.

“I’m feeling good, man, I’m feeling great. I’m in way better shape now and (have been) looking forward to this year’s camp,” he said. “I’ve been having a good camp so far and I’m really enjoying it. I’m glad to just be able to be out there doing stuff with everybody else rather than be on the sideline watching.”

Head coach Pete Carroll told reporters earlier this week that he likes what he’s seen from the young defensive lineman so far.

“He looks like a different guy,” Carroll said. “He’s quicker. He’s explosive. He’s in great shape and he’s battling. He wasn’t ready last time around, getting into camp, getting hurt, we never did get a chance to find out.”
