Monday Round-Up: NFL.com Lists Seahawks' C.J. Prosise Among Young Running Backs Set To Break Out

Former NFL MVP running back LaDainian Tomlinson puts Seattle's C.J. Prosise on a list of five young running backs to watch in 2017.

Good afternoon, 12s. 

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Monday, July 24 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Young RBs To Watch

At NFL.com, former League MVP running back and Hall of Fame Class of 2017 inductee LaDainian Tomlinson put together a list of five young running backs poised for breakout seasons in 2017. Seattle's C.J. Prosise, a third-round pick by the Seahawks last year out of Notre Dame, makes the cut alongside Green Bay's Ty Montgomery, Tennessee's Derrick Henry, Cincinnati's Joe Mixon, and San Francisco's Carlos Hyde.

Tomlinson sees plenty of production ahead for Prosise, projecting the second-year pro to pick up 1,000 yards from scrimmage and 10 total touchdowns in 2017. Here's what Tomlinson had to say about the Seattle running back who through six games played last season tallied 30 carries for 172 yards and a touchdown to go along with 17 catches for 208 yards:

Prosise showed flashes of greatness as a rookie (when he played just six games due to injuries), and he's a guy who can take the next step, despite a crowded backfield in Seattle. Thomas Rawls didn't get the nickname "Baby Beast Mode" for no reason, but he's struggled to stay healthy. And though Eddie Lacy seems to be getting in better shape, he won't be able to demand 200-plus carries. If Prosise can stay healthy, he'll be a dual-threat weapon for the offense. He's a legit home-run hitter and can do things the other two backs can't. He's dynamic on the edge and can catch out of the backfield. Prosise is an electric talent who'll get plenty of touches and touchdowns in Year 2.
