Wednesday Roundup: Seahawks Rashaad Penny Ranks No.10 Most-Elusive Running Back Of 2021

Bryant Horn Of PFF Breaks Down the League’s Most-Elusive Backs Based On Missed Tackles Forced Per Attempt.


Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today – Wednesday, June 29 – about your Seattle Seahawks.

Rashaad Penny Ranked Among NFL's Most Elusive Backs

The Seattle Seahawks' backfield holds a variety of styles in ball carrier. Fifth-year running back Rashaad Penny had a career-year on the stat sheet, and worked hard to get into a great space mentally throughout the course of the year. In Bryant Horn of PFF's rankings of the most-elusive backs of the 2021 season, Penny comes in at No.10.

After dealing with nagging injuries early in his career, Penny rushed for 749 yards and six touchdowns on 6.3 yards per carry.

Horn details why Penny's ability to make defenders miss led to his ranking.

Missed Tackles Forced per Attempt: 0.227 | Missed Tackles Forced: 27

Penny may have moved the chains only 28 times to go along with six touchdowns — both of which were average or below — but he forced a solid 27 missed tackles on 119 attempts.

The veteran back is ready to accept a bigger role this season for a Seahawks team with many new faces.
