Here's the key feat in understanding what Rashaad Penny does well that Lynch did best in his five superhero years in Seattle: Making something out of nothing.
"It's awesome", coach Pete Carroll said when asked what it means that Thomas remains a Seahawk after reports that he could be moved.
The Seahawks are sure that Rashaad Penny is their man.
Turns out, the Seahawks are serious about fixing the running game this year.
"Barkley is a guy we haven't seen in years (in the NFL). But I just felt like my heart wasn't there anymore", Green said. The site noted that it was surprising when the Seahawks went with a running back, but even more so when it wasn't Derrius Guice.
"He has big-play ability", Carroll said. He's going to bring something really explosive. To many, Penny was a second-round projection, but according to SDSU Head Coach Rocky Long, Penny packed his bags and headed home the day before the draft and waited for his name to be called.
"We got to a point my senior year where I was playing at a high level, but at the same time, I've only been playing for two years at tight end". "Football is football. I'm going to compete wherever I am at on the field".
Penny, 5 feet 11 and 220 pounds, led the nation with 2,248 yards rushing yards with 23 touchdowns last season for the Aztecs. Seattle was slated to have the No. 76-overall pick but traded with Pittsburgh and moved back three spots to No. 79 while also picking up an additional seventh-round selection. "I'm first to say that I'm not afraid to block and run the ball". Yes, it may have been a gamble in the eyes of the critics but Penny has the exact tools the Seahawks offense is missing to get themselves back toward the top of the league.
"They need a guy to come in and help".
Dissly's fourth-round selection allows him to remain in the state of Washington, joining a Seahawks' club that finished 9-7 last season. La Canfora has previously reported they wanted a first- and third-round pick.
The Seattle Seahawks selected University of Central Florida linebacker Griffin in the fifth round, reuniting him with his identical twin brother and Seahawks 2017 third-round pick Shaquill Griffin.
The reactions of the on-air broadcasters may have predicted how the National Football League draft grades were going to look for the Seahawks. I've never experienced that.
