2014

Michael saw almost no work last year as the third-stringer behind Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin, and that situation isn't projected to change much this year unless one of the top two guys suffers an injury. Nonetheless, the 5-10, 221-pound Michael is an electric runner with elite strength, agility and athleticism. He did have some durability trouble in college, and his scouting reports mention attitude issues, but he's healthy and hasn't had any reported conflicts at the NFL level. If Lynch goes down with an injury, it wouldn't be surprising at all to see Michael leapfrog Turbin and take the starting role. And even if Lynch stays healthy, Turbin's poor 2013 could lead to Michael displacing him as the backup.

2013

The Seahawks used their first pick in this year's draft on Michael even though they have a quality backup to Marshawn Lynch in Robert Turbin. It's easy to see why, as the 5-10, 220-pound Texas A&M product runs a 4.4 40, a blazing time for his size, and does not shy away from contact. Perceived attitude problems in college created discord with his head coach, leading the gifted back to underachieve as a senior, and a broken ankle and torn ACL in his four years raise durability questions. Nevertheless, given his physical skills, Michael has significant long-term upside if he can get onto the field.
