Seahawks CFP Championship targets: Numbers 11 and 10

No. 11- Kendre Miller, RB TCU

While Kenny McIntosh is a back that could be complementary to Ken Walker III in the pass game and on third down, TCU’s Kendre Miller is the type of back that could be a legitimate partner to Walker, he’s that good.

One of the most underrated running backs in college football, Miller is a 6-0 206 lbs touchdown machine. While stars Quentin Johnston and Max Duggan get all the hype, Miller has quietly rushed for 1,400 yards and 17 touchdowns. While Walker has that magical jump-cut ability, Miller attacks his running lanes and uses a vicious lightning-quick change of direction step, before turning on the jets.

In the Fiesta Bowl, Miller was well on his way to a big game (8 carries for 57 yards) before a sprained knee put his availability for the national championship in question. He’ll suit up for warmups, but it’s very possible the next time Miller plays will be on Sundays.

No. 10- Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson, CB TCU

Undersized and overlooked, THT is the perfect embodiment of not judging the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog. At just 5-9, 177lbs, Hodges-Tomlinson was the best cornerback in college football, being awarded the Jim Thorpe award that goes to the best secondary player in college football.

With 3 interceptions and 14 passes broken up, the nephew of running back legend Ladainian Tomlinson could immediately step into the NFL and be a top-tier slot cornerback. While he doesn’t necessarily fit the Seahawks’ preference in size, his playing style should intrigue Pete Carroll.
