The Seahawks provided one of the draft’s most shocking moments by selecting San Diego State running back Rashaad Penny with their first-round pick. Despite hyping up Penny’s three-down ability after the draft, the Seahawks seemingly plan to use 2017 seventh-rounder Chris Carson as the starter. The winner of their backfield competition will be poised to work as the featured back behind PFF’s 30th-ranked offensive line in a potentially anemic Brian Schottenheimer offense.
