  • Solid player but they really reached for him. If they had any offers they should of traded down.

  • There are some Rbs that have been drafted in late rounds but turned out to be studs, and if it could be done over again would have probably been taken in the 1st round. So i dont know what to think, but I’ll wait and see

  • Rashaad Penny averaged 7.5 yards per carry at San Diego State, which you may say Mountain West and I say Josh Allen averaged 6.7 yards per attempt in the same conference.

    Lol whatever dude. We have holes at OL, pass-rusher, and CB to start as well as depth issues at LB. All those positions are more valuable than RB.

  • Penny was my second favorite RB. It does seem like we could have gotten him in the early second instead, but that's really only based on speculation from the outside. Really shifty open field runner who doesn't go down with contact and has great hands.

    kf3339 wrote:And what O-Line is going to block for him?

    You probably heard this in the off-season already, but Penny was #1 by a wide margin in getting yards after contact in the backfield. Probably the best RB in the draft if you're assuming our OL will suck next year.

    The Seahawks drafting for the last four years has given fans plenty to be negative about. I appreciate your enthusiasm, but Pete and John have given us plenty a reason to be skeptical.

    This guy has quick acceleration but I wouldn't necessarily consider him that fast.

  • I’m pumped. Certainly wasn’t expecting it. He’s here though and he has played 54/54 games in San Diego which is massive; clearly appealed to PCJS.

    I have a lot more faith in our OL this year too.

    Let’s go.

    Harvin ran a 4.41. He had an elite burst. Not a true burner.

  • He led the nation in rushing was fifth in Heisman voting 5'11 220 4.46 forty. I had him ranked right there with Jones and Guice. We all agree we needed a RB I love this pick . With Vita and Davenport off the board I think they did well.

  • This offense doesn't work without a running game. You couldn't rely on Carson or Procise returning to strength for the entire year,

    I'm not super big on Penny, but I love the focus to get the running game back to a strength.

    I actually think we've had some good drafting in that stretch, but speaking just on RBs, I can't think of a single one PCJS drafted that was consistently good on the Seahawks.

  • I was a little surprised, but the Seahaks coulda had pretty much anyone and they took him. Great college production, ticks of most of the things we needed in an RB. I figured no one here was gonna like him, so that's a plus in my book. Penny and Carson will make a nice 1-2 punch.

  • Ignore the whining, this is a great pick for so many reasons.


    Personally, I LOVE this pick, and I'm glad they grabbed him because I highly doubt he would have been there much longer... somebody was going to take this guy because he's one of those players who's better than his NFL scout ranking.

    I think he's the best RB I've seen the Seahawks draft in a very long time, perhaps only exceeded by Curt Warner and Shaun Alexander, and I think he makes at least 2 pro-bowls with this team.

    Here is the THING about Penny.

    When he's hit, he doesn't go down... he played behind an offensive line that was nowhere near as good as the other lines you see with the other backs being drafted.

    KEY STAT:

    Rating the 58 backs avaialbe by how they did when they got hit behind the line of scrimmage?

    Barkley was almost dead last in this draft class -- he only averaged .46 years per carry when he was hit behind the line of scrimmage.

    Penny was #1 -- he averaged 3.32 yards per carry when hit behind the line of scrimmage.

    The last NFL running back to come into the draft averaging over 3 yards per carry when hit behind the LOS?

    Marshawn Lynch ....

    Interesting stat, I admit I was stunned when the pick came in. I liked Penny but I thought of him as a third rounder. Apparently Seattle did not. I'll be rooting for him to succeed. Sounds like the kind of back we need with our current offensive line.

    Yes, I'm serious. He had an insane 0-60 to create distance between himself and defenders early, but he didn't pull away from ACTUAL NFL TALENT. College is college, which is junior league, and yeah I remember watchinig him then too,

  • I’ve digested it a bit and do like the pick. He has some pretty nasty second and third gears. A lot of his runs came with open field but he certainly made the first person miss more often than not. Competition may not have been as good but the stats he had are numbers you can’t overlook. Sounds like browns we’re very high on him as well likely taking him early tomorrow. Not sure what will happen in round 2 now.

    Personally, I LOVE this pick, and I'm glad they grabbed him because I highly doubt he would have been there much longer... somebody was going to take this guy because he's one of those players who's better than his NFL scout ranking.

    I think he's the best RB I've seen the Seahawks draft in a very long time, perhaps only exceeded by Curt Warner and Shaun Alexander, and I think he makes at least 2 pro-bowls with this team.

    Here is the THING about Penny.

    When he's hit, he doesn't go down... he played behind an offensive line that was nowhere near as good as the other lines you see with the other backs being drafted.

    KEY STAT:

    Rating the 58 backs avaialbe by how they did when they got hit behind the line of scrimmage?

    Barkley was almost dead last in this draft class -- he only averaged .46 years per carry when he was hit behind the line of scrimmage.

    Penny was #1 -- he averaged 3.32 yards per carry when hit behind the line of scrimmage.

    The last NFL running back to come into the draft averaging over 3 yards per carry when hit behind the LOS?

    Marshawn Lynch ....


    Just saying...


    Man get out of here with your facts. Mob mentality and overreaction is the .net way. :17:

  • My knee jerk was that this was too high, but I myself said that Barkley, Michel, and Penny were the top 3. All playoff teams last year and almost every year run the ball except for the Pats. Top 3 backs are now off the board and the Hawks got one of those top 3 backs.

    That said, I think the whole reach/round (no pun intended) probably needs to be put to bed. There will be a run of backs in the 2nd round with teams trying to make life easier on their QBs.

  • Hawks have not drafted well since 2012 when Pete still knew all the college players available and their hidden talents.

    Please don't give me that JS is some great draft nik. He has done very little since Pete lost his inside track on the players he originally recruited or looked at.

    I do think he is a good back. BUT wont do any good unless this team addresses the OL which they have ignored for like 6 years or more!

  • One of the best things about this is the fact that it concretes emphasis on the run game and all the pro passing QB WR, vaginal patty cake football loving fans that want to watch flag football.....you just gotta eat it. Or maybe suck on it....
