    I think they're probably fine with what they're getting from Mike Rob, but are open on taking on a sixth round flyer to see if he can be replaced cheaply. I don't think we should look at a sixth round pick and automatically assume this guy is a shoe in to win a competition over Robinson. Ware's got an uphill battle to make this roster, but if he has that talent, this ends up being a home run pick.

  • Mike Rob doesnt have his job on the line. As long as Marshawn is on the team so will mike rob. Let Ware sit back and learn the FB position and Christine (lol) will learn from marshawn. Turbinator will stay a backup but will still get carries. This is a great pick for the FUTURE. But... im still stuck on not having some LB depth.

  • ST, FB and pass blocking back who is a little more dynamic than M. Rob. Turbin and Washington last year had big problems pass blocking. Lynch is a good pass blocker but you don't want him gassed just for that.

  • I think Turbin is the odd man out. For all his gunz he runs too top-heavy to really beast anyone, and I find myself not caring if Turbin can catch out of the backfield since we have Harvin and Miller to be alternaties. Ware...Marshawn lite indeed. Loved the leg drive I saw out of him in those highlights and some of those smackdowns of safeties coming up trying to tackle him had me chuckling a bit.

    Lots of horses back there, goodness. Perhaps the idea is you don't have to have a crazy OL with a QB that has all of RW's escapability and with RBs who can drag the pile 10 yards.

  • You guys are crazy if you think the Seahawks will just carry 4 RBs. We did it last season because there wasn't anyone worth while to be carried as the 5th.

    Seahawks can easily carry:

    Lynch/Turbin/Michael

    Robinson/Ware

    Do I think Lynch/Robinson both could be gone after this season? Yes

    Do I believe the Seahawks were NOT a big fan of their Goal-Line/Short Yardage Defense? I do, Michael spent last season being a Goal Line specialist and Ware is a monster in short-yardage situations.

    People read into so much stuff, I think, the Seahawks want to win a Superbowl... you do that by great depth insurance and make sure you iron out your wrinkles which our Goal-Line and Short Yardage situations with our RBs in 2012 left a lot to be desired.

  • This pick baffles me a bit, but if they intend to convert him into a FB down the road than I can understand it. But it would be very hard to keep 5 RBs on the roster this upcoming year.

    Yep. Most teams have at least five RBs/FBs on the depth chart, and none of them run as much as Seattle.

  • Looks like a FB. He can compete and push Robinson (who has a high cap number) at least. Would have preferred to see other positions addressed, but I understand drafting a full back.

    This is what I was thinking and I'm glad PC confirmed it. He could develop into a good fullback like M-Rob, who was also drafted as a RB and then moved to FB. With that in mind I like the pick.

    You know have 3 young prospects for the running game- Turbin and Michael at RB and Ware at FB.

    Dude looks more beast mode then our original beast mode. I'd be a bit scared putting him on the practice squad especially considering how many RB's go down throughout the season. Maybe if he's not quite ready for the roster he can come up with some mystery injury to get himself on injured reserve.

    But i'm not giving up on him being on the active roster. The dude looks fierce on the field.

    A lot of teams don't even have true FBs anymore.I bet he doesnt even make the final cut. Possible PS guy to see if he can develop into something for us. MRob isnt going anywhere (this year atleast) IMHO

  • Wow, some people still don't understand how the Seahawks approach things.

    We have an open spot at RB with Leon gone. Since when have Pete and John abandoned competition???

    We have a spot open at RB3 so they are bringing in multiple guys to compete for that spot giving them a better chance at finding the best player. Not too sure what's hard for people to understand about that...

  • After watching all the clips available on youtube, I would not put this guy on PS. That would be a huge mistakes. He will be picked up within a minute. His tape looks very similar to Lynch's tape.

    Teams are always looking for tough RB's. Jets traded for Chris Ivory and gave up a 4th rounder. NE traded for Blount.

    Plus isnt' the rule more of an open/down field type thing? If he gets the ball he is going to be smashing through the middle and as far as I understand the rule you can lower your head as a RB near the line of scrimmage.

    Yea, watching the highlights I didnt see a single carry that would have been flagged. He lowers his helmet to absorb contact but I never saw him lead with the crown of his helmet.

  • This gives the Hawks flexibility to carry either a 5th back in the 48-53 inactive list range or to dump Mike Rob and his $2.5m salary if they think Ware is ready to take on a starting FB role or some form of shared duty with Turbin. I always thought when the season ended Leon and Mike Rob were two of the most vulnerable guys on the roster... higher salary vets who weren't key pieces and have limited shelf life
