NFL Media Senior Fantasy Analyst Michael Fabiano shares which running backs fantasy owners should target after the top options are off the board
With the Seahawks final preseason game on Thursday night, the team combined Competition Wednesday and Turnover Thursday into one day, hopefully preparing themselves for later in the year when they play on Thursday night in the regular season.
Due to the shortened week, the team doubled up on a Tuesday practice of preseason week four with the themes of "Competition Wednesday" and "Turnover Thursday".
A player-by-player look at the 2015 Seattle Seahawks 75-man roster. The Seahawks must trim their roster to 53 players by 1 p.m. PT on Saturday, Sept. 5.
The fourth Tuesday in May loomed large for a couple of reasons when it comes to the Seahawks.
In addition to the players kicking off Phase 3 of their offseason program with a spirited OTA practice at Virginia Mason Athletic Center, the team also announced the signings of its final two draft choices – wide receiver Kevin Norwood and linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis. Each was selected in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
The team already had signed seven of its nine draft choices.
Norwood, who played at Alabama, had an impressive rookie minicamp last weekend. The 6-foot-2, 199-pound Norwood added a 20-yard reception during Tuesday’s OTA session along the shores of Lake Washington.
“Norwood, he’s got a knack for making the big catch,” veteran receiver Percy Harvin said after practice. “I noticed that in him already. He’s not the fastest, not the biggest, but he has a knack for making that big play.”
Norwood averaged 15.7 yards on 81 receptions for the Crimson Tide.
Pierre-Louis, who is from Boston College, caught the eye of coach Pete Carroll during the rookie minicamp.
“He plays very fast,” Carroll said. “He’s really a big accelerator. He seems to be a really good learner, too, so he should fit into the competition really well.”
The 6-foot, 236-pound Pierre-Louis had 108 of his career 360 tackles last season for Boston College.
