Seahawks selected Texas A&M RB Christine Michael with the No. 62 overall pick.
Michael (5-10, 220) amassed 2,374 yards and 22 TDs on 441 carries (5.38 YPC) over his first three college seasons, flourishing in Mike Sherman's pro-style offense. Michael tore his left ACL in November of 2011 and returned to struggle in Kevin Sumlin's spread while landing in the new coach's doghouse. A healthy, focused Michael is the single most talented runner in this class with hammer-dropping power, 4.54 speed, and a blazing 1.51 ten-yard split. Muscle bound but elusive, he offers explosive lateral moves and looked like a rich man's Ben Tate on 2011 film. This appears to be a flier selection, since the Seahawks appear to be set at the position with Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin, but Michael's natural talent is outstanding.
