This falls into the category, "We will end up drafting guys that don't make the team.". Practice squad bound/injury insurance.

BPA. We're in the sixth round. I was surprised, but I don't know why anyone would be upset.

Sounds like a tough RB/FB hybrid. Well Mike Rob and Turbin have officially been put on notice I think

Didn't the NFL just pretty much make it against the rules for running backs to run over defenders?

Soooooo who has been blowing the socks off PC/JS this off-season? Korey Toomer, Malcolm Smith, Allen Bradford, or Mike Morgan? Thought for sure OLB would be a high priority.

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.

This had me confused for awhile but it's great insurance against injury to Marshawn. Nothing bad about having 3 stellar RB's on a run first team.

Sixth round pick and already a stellar RB? Lend me some of that positivity!

Just grinding your gears. Hope it works out!

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.

No offense taken given I do like to keep positive about any players we pick to be Seahawks. :mrgreen:

I think we may be saying goodbye to The Real Rob Report. My guess is Ware is the FB and Lynch, Michael, Turbin at RB

That's a lot of confidence in a sixth rounder to beat out a starter.

Most FBs aren't taken too early anyway. Heck the best rated FB going into the draft was taken in the 4th

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.

Carroll says Ware will be primarily used as a FB. MRob getting cut with that cap number is not out of this world, no matter what anybody says.

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.

With the new rule this year, kid is going to have to rework his game. Watching his clips he leads with his hat in almost all of them.


He converting to FB, Im not sure that is critical to his overall performance.


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

One things for sure when they decide to address a position they don't mess around were set a RB for a long time.
