The Seattle Seahawks have selected Spencer Ware from LSU as their second running back of the 2013 NFL Draft. The pick was No. 26 in the 6th round, No. 194 overall and due to the trade up to get defensive tackle Jesse Williams from Alabama, the only 6th round pick for Seattle in this draft.
Spencer Ware is not your prototypical running back, so the first thought that comes to mind is that he’ll come in as cap relief in the fullback role, which Michael Robinson currently occupies as a highly paid fullback. It won’t be the popular thought amongst 12’s but Ware is 228 pounds and after watching plenty of LSU football in 2011 and 2012, has forever been called more of the “prototypical” fullback. Ran for 367 yards on 94 attempts and only 1 touchdown on a highly physical running football team and only ran a 4.62 40 at his pro day. Take that for what it’s worth but fullback seems the ideal fit.
There isn’t much on him around the web, but NFL.com has said he showed “exceptional hands” while catching the ball in all his workouts.
