Scouting Report
One of the fastest players available in the draft, Seastrunk figures to fill the role of change-of-pace back in the NFL. The only player in Baylor history with multiple 1,000-yard rushing seasons, he finished off his career by rushing for 117 yards in the Bears' Fiesta Bowl loss to Central Florida before declaring for the draft following his junior year. He was a two-time all-Big 12 player. After running a 4.46 40-yard dash at the school's pro day March 19, he figures to be picked in the middle rounds. Scouts have compared his running style to that of Eagles star LeSean McCoy, given his vision and ability to change directions quickly. A low-to-the-ground runner, Seastrunk can turn inches into yards with a quick first step and tremendous burst. He also can run through contact, making him difficult to tackle in the open field. His combine performances in the vertical jump (41.5 inches) and broad jump (11 feet, 2 inches) topped all running backs. Among the issues that could prevent him from being an every-down player are a lack of size and questions about his versatility. Seastrunk's ability to pick up the blitz and be a reliable pass blocker are a concern. He also doesn't appear to be a factor as a receiver, as he had just nine catches as a sophomore and none as a junior. Seastrunk has the chance to make an instant impact in the league if he finds an offensive scheme that suits his skill set.
