Carson, a seventh-round pick out of Oklahoma State last year, won the starting job in the Seahawks' backfield in training camp and put together a solid four-week run before breaking his leg and ending his season. It's easy to see what the coaching staff liked about the rookie, as he runs with tackle-breaking power behind a 5-11, 218-pound frame and seems to welcome contact without hesitation. The downside is that he doesn't make many defenders miss, and an injury history that dates back to his junior year in college suggests he might not be able to withstand the pounding his running style attracts. Carson also doesn't offer much in passing situations, limiting his role primarily to early downs and short-yardage spots. The selection of Rashaad Penny in the first round leaves Carson in a tricky spot, though the second-year pro did open training camp with the starting offense.

  2. Chris Carson 2017 Preseason Outlook
    It appears as if the Seahawks will opt to have a running back by committee in 2017 with Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise all capable of leading the charge. Beyond that, Seattle has a handful of young backs competing for limited roster spots, and Carson, a seventh-round selection, will have to separate himself from the crowd if he hopes to remain on the roster come September. While he failed to record major stats at Oklahoma State, the 22-year-old performed admirably during the combine, running a 4.58-second 40 while posting a 37-inch vertical and 130-inch broad jump, but don't expect him to see major reps in 2017.
