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.

  • Ben Peterson

    Alan Branch was the 3-tech, not the nose tackle.

  • RikkHawk

    And Turbin was part of the class of 2012, not 2013. Williams was though.

    • JJ Allen Keller

      He meant 2012 I am sure. He mentioned Bruce and Bobby as well.

    • SayreBedinger

      Thanks for pointing that out, I made a quick correction. I am so used to typing 2013 haha

    who do you think we will pick up free agents any more this year
    do we have any cap space left
    we should have picked up matt hasselbeck he just resigned to another team
    today he won a lot of games for us. i am sure he can do better than Quinn & the other guy / the other guy we had a few years i cant remember his name
    will beat out all the others sorry Quinn

      Matt Hasselbeck LOST more games for us than he ever helped us win. He was not a very good QB (probably the most overrated QB outside of Michael Vick) when he played for us and has not gotten any better elsewhere (which is why he was released by Tennessee). As much as I am down on T-Jack I would rather have HIM as a backup than Hasselbeck.
      Also use punctuation guy. Questions end with the ‘?’ and non-question sentences end with either a ‘.’ (that’s a period) or an ‘!’.

        I dident know mike vick played for seahawks
        how many QB brought us to the supper bowl
        I dident know there was more than 1
        & who was that do you have a name

          Mike Vick never played for the Hawks. Why would you even think that?! You have a great deal of difficulty with basic reading comprehension which goes right along with your atrocious spelling and grammar. I stated that Matt HASSELBECK (who DID play for Seattle) was the most overrated QB aside from Michael Vick. That does not mean Michale Vick played for Seattle kiddo.
          And Hasselbeck did not take us to the Super Bowl. He was the QB we had when we made it to the super bowl. See the difference? Many teams have made it to and even WON super bowls with average or even sub-par QBs who played a little beyond their usual production (see Trent Dilfer of Baltimore Ravens right before he was tossed off that team and given to Seattle).

          There is no ‘e’ in “didn’t”. “Didn’t” is a contraction of the words “did” and “not” and so has an apostrophe in place of the ‘o’ in ‘not to form the single word “didn’t”.

          There is no such term as “supper bowl”. This is very basic stuff. If you want to post comments that others should read and evaluate on substance and merit then you are obligated to make SOME effort to make your comments readable.

  • jimpassi

    yes i know matt is getting a little older but i still think he has a little left in the tank only as a back up

  • jimpassi

    do i think matt is a bit old yes
    do i think he can start nope but as a back up yes
    i think he would be better that Quinn & the others
    was all i was saying
