I'm not really sure why people think CMike is a upgrade over Turbin. They are virtually the same player, Same size, same measurables. Turbin is a little faster (at least according to the combine times).
Turbin- grade= 74.5 (arbitrary I know), 4.50= 40 time, 28 reps- bench, 36"-vert, 122"- Broad, 7.16-cone, 4.31-20 shttl
Michael- grade= 71.4(arbitrary grd), 4.54= 40 time, 27 reps- bench, 43"-vert, 125"-Broad, 6.69-3 cone, 4.02- 20 shttl

Turbin was way more productive than Michael, who never broke 1,000 rushing @ TAMU. Michael also has a bigger injury history. Which isn't to say I don't like the guy, But as PC said, they are very similar players and I'd say it gives us the best backfield in the NFL.
I think both are very fast, shifty, and dynamic players. I expect both to play this year and lighten Marshawn's workload.
I'm really curious to see how Ware does at FB.
Speculative: All the air missing from Tom Brady's deflated balls now inflates Russell Wilson's growing ego.

Turbin is that guy at the gymn that does curls and bench press all day long. He's all upper body. Michael's build is pretty evenly distributed, to the point where he looks small for a 220 pound back.
I think if push came to shove and someone had to start the beginning of the season in place of Lynch, it would be Turbin. But as the season goes on I thinkMichael takes that over.
