The Seahawks defense has lost some of the great names of the past few years, but rookie LB ​Shaquem Griffin wasted no time in showing Seattle that he can be a serious playmaker as the team ushers in a new era.

Griffin was everywhere in his NFL debut. 

How about that? ​Griffin led the Hawks in tackles in their preseason opener. He was extremely active from the very beginning of the game. He had four tackles in his first four snaps and finished with nine total.

There's no doubt that this guy is hungry and eager to prove himself. He doesn't give a damn about what the naysayers are expressing. Just look at the way in which he blows up this running play.

Relentless. Listen to what Seahawks defensive coordinator said about Griffin's ​impressive progress so far:

"This kid is fast, he's really smart, he's really physical, he doesn't make the same mistake twice, and he shows up every day. He's for real."

It sure looks like Griffin will be on the hunt a whole lot this season.
