...running back Christine Michael from Texas A&M. Michael had some injury problems his last two seasons in college, but he's a strong, bruising runner who makes defenders pay every time they try to take him on. He pushes hard for extra yards (important, since he isn't shifty enough to make many tacklers miss), he's strong in pass protection, and he has some chops as a lead blocker, too. As long as his health holds up, he looks to be a solid, versatile addition to the roster who can give Lynch and Turbin a breather here and there and sub in for Robinson at fullback if need be, too.
I really like this pick. Seahawks are a run team. Realistically, if we continue to use Lynch the way we have, he's going to start having trouble. I think he was more banged up at season's end last year than he was letting on. Michael's acl was junior season, he's already comeback from that. Low mileage from clashes w/ coach his senior season still netted 12 TD's. Athletically, he's Lynch and more. Trust in Pete!
Yikes. Have you watched him play at all?
He is not a fullback in any way, and pretty mediocre in pass protection.
He IS pretty shifty, however, particularly for his size. He makes people miss all the time.
