Again, referring to my own mock draft, I have one RB going in round 1, one in round 2, three in round 3, and two in round 4.
So the drop off in waiting two rounds for a RB is much less than that at the Cornerback position. My round 4 pick for the Seahawks is another Buckeye, Trey Sermon.
Before anybody thinks I have a Buckeye bias, I do not, I have never even visited Ohio.
Sermon is not the most daunting physical specimen at 6-feet and 221 pounds, with a 4.53 forty time. But he has a good sense of where the gaps will appear and a nice initial burst to exploit those gaps. Allied to this, he has quick feet and for want of a better phrase, shifty hips and a pretty good stiff arm too.
The initial burst gets him through level 1, and then his feet and hips make him a threat to break through level 2 of defenses. In addition, he finishes runs well and rarely gets brought down easily.
Another plus for Sermon is that he is a threat as a receiving back and is particularly adept on screen plays.
My only concern with Sermon is that he carries the ball a bit too loosely for my liking, he will need to tighten this up at the NFL level to avoid being a victim to the ball stripping defenders at the next level.
With Chris Carson likely to leave, Sermon could be the perfect replacement and compete with Rashaad Penny and DeeJay Dallas for the vacant lead back spot.
