Potential Seahawks running back targets, post combine.
The Seahawks place emphasis on given size parameters (5’10” + and 215 lbs. +). As well as specific numbers on the vertical jump (35″) and broad jump (10′). We will focus on players that fit the Seahawks mold. For full combine results see NFL Combine Results Tracker.
Ballage is a good athlete for his size, and looked fluid in all drills. He showed solid hands, but double caught the ball on the over the shoulder throws. The ASU all-purpose back will need to work on wheel routes before his pro day. He didn’t hit the ideal in his vertical, but did on the broad jump. Ballage definitely has some skills, but you have to ask with that talent why wasn’t he better on the field? DeMario Richard started over him at Arizona State.
Nick Chubb looks powerful, but not overly quick laterally. He appears to be tight hipped. Chubb looks like a battering ram, running downhill with excellent build up speed. His hands were solid, but he didn’t look overly comfortable catching the ball. The former Georgia standout will be a good north/south runner in the NFL. He should be a good fit in a zone scheme or straight ahead...
