Second Year — Robert Turbin, RB

The Seahawks class of 2012 is something else. Bruce Irvin led all rookies with eight sacks, Bobby Wagner was a tackling machine, finishing with 141 on the season, and Russell Wilson was Russell Wilson.

That left Robert Turbin kind of lost in the fray, but he quietly had a very solid rookie year for the Seahawks, easing into the offensive gameplan and getting his first taste of the NFL.

Turbin is an exceptional pass catcher out of the backfield, and has good straight line speed and power. I thought coming out of Utah State he had a chance to go as high as the second or third round, and Seattle stole him in the fourth.

I wouldn’t be the least bit shocked to see Turbin bust out this year as one of the top reserve tailbacks in the NFL thanks to his pass catching skills and speed. He has a ton of ability and a lot of great competition in Seattle, but he is talented enough to make a significant impact.
