SEATTLE – The battle between Geno Smith and Drew Lock in the battle for the starting quarterback job for the Seattle Seahawks had its first big evaluation in the team’s mock game scrimmage at Lumen Field on Saturday afternoon.

Head coach Pete Carroll called the scrimmage “a really big day” for the competition on Friday ahead of the practice and it provided an opportunity for both quarterbacks to get game-like reps under center.

“It looked like they threw the ball pretty well,” Carroll said of the quarterback performances in the scrimmage. “The way it worked out, Drew had some more opportunities, but I thought that they threw the ball really nice in the controlled stuff and underneath. We were clean with the ball coming out, the protection was good early, so it will give us a good chance to see them. If you noticed that both guys got to work with the first O-line today and the first receivers, so it will be a nice chance to compare these guys”
