If the team decides to take one in the second round, there are two players that might entice them to pull that trigger. Those two players are Jahmyr Gibbs from Alabama, and the other is Zach Charbonnet from UCLA. Both players possess great talent at the running back position, Jahmyr Gibbs profiles as a great pass-catching back, while Zach Charbonnet is considered to be a bell cow type of back.

It is up to the Seahawks' management to decide what type of complimentary running back they want to pair with their own, Kenneth Walker III.
