The Seahawks surprised everyone in the draft and took the running back that was drawing comparisons to their current workhorse running back, Marshawn Lynch. Micheal is a physical runner, and although he has had his share of injuries and off-field issues, he might be the most talented running back in the draft and a steal for the Seahawks. Micheal should become the No. 1 handcuff for Marshawn Lynch, as Robert Turbin was slightly unimpressive from the small sample size in 2012, and because of Lynch's history of back problems and looming suspension, Michael needs to be drafted by anyone who owns or plans to own Lynch in 2013.
