Kenneth Walker III
Kenneth Walker III was the second running back drafted in the 2022 NFL Draft when the Seattle Seahawks selected him in the second round, five picks after the New York Jets selected Breece Hall.
Walker stepped in as the starter in Week 6 and became a big part of the Seahawks offense. He would finish the year with over 1,000 rushing yards and had five games with over 100 rushing yards (including the final three regular season games).
The Seahawks will play the San Francisco 49ers in the first round and this certainly will be a tough game for Walker as the 49ers have one of the best run defenses this season. The 49ers finished the year allowing the second-fewest rushing yards per game with an average of only 77.7.
If the Seahawks are going to pull off the upset they will need big games from Walker and this next rookie.
