I'm concerned about our RB situation. Realizing it's early but how many RB's will Pete keep? Who makes the squad and who is sent to the waiver wire? thanks.

Lacy, Rawls, and Prosise seem all but locked into the roster. It would be really strange if one of them didn't make the team. Hard to project so far out, but I would bet they carry a 4th. From what we have seen, Pope deserves to be on the team over Collins. Hopefully both get a good amount of carries this preseason and we give Collins a chance to carry it consistently before we make a final judgement on him

Given last season the Seahawks cut their leader in rushing yards midseason, I think it's safe to say nobody is safe, except for maybe Rawls.

I think they carry on 4 RBs and 1 FB for the season. Wouldn't shock me if they went 5 RBs and 1 FB given Prosise's scheme versatility.

From more to less likely of making the roster:

1 - Thomas Rawls
2 - CJ Prosise
3 - Eddie Lacy
4 - Alex Collins
5 - Troymane Pope
6 - Chris Carson

I am rooting for Chris Carson to make it.

I think Lacy is a lock. He still averaged some of the highest yards after contact (if not the highest) last year in the snaps/runs he had.

Prosise showed too many good flashes and wont be 100% TC anyway, so there's zero chance Seattle cuts him.

Rawls IMO I'm a bit uncertain on. Yes he had some great flashes in season 1, but he got injured AGAIN in season 2... I wont knock his running since I think he was injured more often than not (and playing injured) but meh...

Rest I have no idea... I actually want to see more of Collins. I didn't think he was TERRIBLE last year.

Mike Davis is a good system fit for you all.

My concern is Lacy's on a 1 yr deal. If we have to cut a Collins, who I do like, and Lacy walks, what are we left with? Back to Rawls, Prosise and Carson from the practice squad and A 2018 draft where we select a RB.

Pete loves Prosise's versatility, so he's not going anywhere. Lacy will be the battering ram and won't get enough carries in pre-season to cut him. I like Rawl's power game.

I see that Collin's isn't getting a shot to show his talent. A few carries here and there can't show his game. His feet are quicker than anticipated as he's side stepped DL while having some power. I think Collin's fits our Offense and should be the last cut & play.

While Ahman Green was a better back, I had this same argument back in the late 90's. Ahman never got the shot to carry the rock and I was a huge fan. I remember him fumbling a kickoff and then fumbled vs the Raiders. Holmgren couldn't take it and shipped him out. I was sick and pis$ ed off. Ahman needed more carries. You could see the talent but 2 carries a game wasn't good enough. In 2 seasons, Green had like 50 carries.

While I really liked Shaun, I always believed that Ahman with that burst, power and screen game would've been a rocket for us. Yes, I thought Green was a better back but that's what my non-homer lenses told me. My homer glasses were glad we had Shaun and I was a big fan. Though he was a bit soft in going out of bounds or hitting the deck. Had some Franco Harris to his game.

If we let Collins go, I hope he goes to Philly where he could really shine. They don't have a RB and could use some pop. Collin's is just a reserve back, but a nice piece in the rotation and safety net for injuries and Lacy walking. I hope we keep him as the 3rd back.

Since we're talking running backs, let's check out Rookie highlights for Lacy and I think we forget just how good Ahman Green was. Most didn't have satellite dishes. Green cutting through Walt and Hutch with that burst... oh my...

He's in better shape now too. Hopefully that translates to making your 53 man roster.

Would not be shocked if we carry 4 RBs. He could push Collins and Pope for the last spot
