28. Seattle Seahawks- Bo Scarbrough, RB, Alabama

The Seattle Seahawks have several capable running backs on their current roster. They seem to really believe in Thomas Rawls despite his lack of experience and injury history. Eddie Lacy was brought in to compete for the starting job, but is now relegated to a backup role.

We have even seen undrafted rookie, Chris Carson, get some love based on his performance in the preseason. However, it’s safe to say that none of these running backs have locked down the long-term job.

Seattle’s running back position has been a mixing and match game since Marshawn Lynch retired. They could potentially stop the revolving door with someone like Alabama’s Bo Scarbrough. His powerful running style will remind some of Lynch.

The other obvious option is for the Seahawks to add more talent along the offensive line. They still haven’t invested a ton of resources on this group which has hindered their offense’s consistency. It has also put Russell Wilson’s health in jeopardy.

Seattle needs to eventually fix the offensive line problems or risk Wilson continuing to take more hits than necessary. He is the team’s top player and needs to be protected. It’s sort of shocking that they haven’t made this a priority yet.
