The Seahawks appear to be looking at running backs in the NFL draft which may surprise some fans. Standout Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor is among the players the Seahawks met with at the NFL Combine, per Sports Illustrated.
The Seahawks already have Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny on their roster, but both players had their season cut short with injuries. Sports Illustrated’s Corbin Smith reported that Pete Carroll admitted that the team could add a running back during the offseason.
“We have to make sure that we have enough depth,” Carroll told Sports Illustrated. “Chris should be absolutely fine. We won’t overdue it with him, he’s had two great back-to-back seasons. We’re going to take care of him throughout all the way to game time when it comes up, so that means we’ve got some spots available for guys to compete for, so we’ll see how that goes.”
