Summary

Most draft analysts projected Penny as a second or third round pick in the NFL draft, but the Seahawks took him 27th overall despite having major question marks at more important positions. Clearly, the team is committed to reestablishing their ground game under new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, but Penny -- as talented as he clearly is -- has his work cut out for him. The addition of D.J. Fluker doesn't seem like enough to fix a dreadful offensive line that contributed to each of last year's Week 1 co-starters -- Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls -- finishing the season with less than 2.8 yards carry. If the shoddy line play continues, it will create added urgency for Penny to perform in pass protection, an area of his game many scouts cite as lacking. Penny's lack of explosiveness as a check down receiver at San Diego State also calls his three-down readiness into question. None of this is to say Penny isn't an exciting prospect. He's a dominant runner both inside and outside the tackles with excellent size, short area quickness, and enough pass-catching ability to bail out Russell Wilson on broken plays. Ultimately, the draft capital the Seahawks invested in Penny should guarantee him at least 220 total touches, which places him in RB2 consideration by default. How much he can accomplish with those touches will depend on his ability to overcome playing in what was the lowest-yield rushing attack in the league last season. (May 5)
