NFL Draft Pick 2:30 - Christine Michael, RB, Seattle Seahawks

by Tim Heaney on April 26, 2013 @ 18:22:00 PDT


The Seattle Seahawks selected Texas A&M RB Christine Michael with the 62nd overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Fantasy analysis: His Scouting Combine performance was impressive in workouts as he got to display his 5-foot-10, 220-pound bowling-ball physique. A broken leg and a torn anterior cruciate ligament marred his college career, though, and he missed some team interviews in Indianapolis.

Still, he stands a solid chance of competing to be, if not immediately becoming, Marshawn Lynch's main handcuff in this zone-blocking system that breeds rushing success. His reported weakness in cutting ability might mean he isn't a perfect fit, though, despite his body's makeup.

He's not immediately draft-worthy in fantasy formats, but should significant carries open up, he could be a major flex contributor right away.
