Where Seahawks stand at running back after draft
By Brady Henderson
The same question was asked to Christine Michael and Spencer Ware when each separately spoke with Seattle-area reporters after they were drafted by the Seahawks: Which NFL running back is their style most comparable to?
“Marshawn Lynch, of course,” Michael said after Seattle chose him in the second round on Friday, a day before Ware would give the same answer once he was picked in the sixth round.
The decision to draft two running backs was a surprise in itself given the Seahawks’ overall strength at the position with Lynch, backup Robert Turbin and fullback Michael Robinson. More so considering their skillsets seem to be similar to what the Seahawks already have at the position.
Brock Huard and Danny O’Neil pick up the conversation there as they begin their look at different position groups on the Seahawks.
