Boykin is doing everything he can to be Wilson's shadow, and that's a really smart move. It also helps that Pete Carroll seems to really like Tre. What helps even more is Boykin's familiarity with new Seahawks center, and another Frog, Joey Hunt.

Boykin, wearing No. 2, showed a commanding presence, strong arm on throws down the field and to the sidelines plus an affable smile. As the weekend went on, he took more of the snaps.
