Seahawks, Round 7. His prospects on the Seahawks are much better as a fullback than a running back. Especially since they already have Marshawn Lynch, Robert Turbin, and Christine Michael. But the fact that he can play both running back and fullback (and linebacker) should help him stick. But he’s probably not more than a deep bench player and special teamer in the NFL.
All-Star Games: NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.
Positives: Great bulk for even a fullback. Can pick his way through traffic at the line. Above-average power with strong legs and can churn through his contact. Above-average hands. Versatile, and can play running back, fullback, and was also the backup linebacker in college. Fair run blocker who steps up to meet defenders.
Negatives: Short for a running back, and way too short for a fullback. Is also probably too bulky and slow to play running back in the NFL. Below-average speed and quickness. Poor track speed. Runs too upright behind the line and in short yardage situations. Isn’t an overpowering blocker. Had foot surgery in Sept. 2012 and missed the rest of the season, redshirting.
Projection: No need to draft in fantasy.
