C.J. Prosise, RB
The Seattle Seahawks selected C.J. Prosise in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Prosise was expected to come in as a pass catching specialist, after playing wide receiver in college. Sadly for Prosise and Seattle, injuries have derailed the young back’s career. Despite having limited competition in front of him, Prosise has only played 11 career games.
Prosise has suffered a long list of injuries, including and ankle injury that ended his 2017 early. He also missed most of his rookie season with a hamstring and a shoulder injury. Staying healthy in 2018 is obviously important for Prosise.
While injuries have garnered Prosise a bust so far, he has been explosive when he is on the field. Prosise has averaged 4.8 yards per attempt, and 12.8 yards per catch in his NFL career. His only career touchdown was a 72-yard run against the Philadelphia Eagles. With the Seahawks drafting Rashaad Penny in the first round, the days of Prosise being a workhorse back are long gone in Seattle.
What Prosise can provide is another explosive weapon for this offense, and he could make a change to wide receiver with so many openings at the position. Prosise can carve out a Theo Riddick-like role, and be an impact player for Seattle.
