 Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Seahawks' picks: Round 2/62 - Christine Michael, RB, 5-10, 220, Texas A&M ...The Seahawks traded back six spots from No. 56 to 62 with the Ravens, and still got their top-rated prospect on the board. Replaces Leon Washington as team's change-of-pace back. QUOTE TO NOTE: "He's a really explosive back. I mean one cut, downhill, runs through arm tackles, really good balance on contact. He's just an explosive NFL back that has a lot of talent, and it jumps off the tape." -- Seahawks southwest area scout Matt Berry on Seattle's second-round draft pick, Texas A&M running back Christine Michael. - The Sports Xchange

 Christine Michael TSX Player News Log
09/17/14 - RB Christine Michael was a limited participant on Wednesday with a hamstring injury that caused him to miss the first two games of the season. He could be back this week.
09/11/14 - RB Christine Michael was unable to practice Thursday, still bothered by a hamstring that has held him out of the last two games. That makes his availability for Sunday's game unlikely.
09/11/14 - RB Christine Michael, who has been out the last two weeks with a hamstring injury, may be able to return. He had been competing with Robert Turbin for the backup tailback job behind Marshawn Lynch. Turbin is the unquestioned backup now but if healthy, Michael could get some snaps.
08/24/14 - RB Christine Michael, competing with Robert Turbin for the No. 2 tailback job, had his best game of the preseason with a team-high 28 yards on eight carries and three receptions for 36 yards, including a 7-yard touchdown. He also didn't have a fumble for the first time this season.
08/19/14 - RB Christine Michael has fumbled twice in 15 attempts in two games. But while coach Pete Carroll says the fumbles are a concern, he said he has not lost confidence in Michael and says that otherwise, he has run well. Each fumble came when a defender came from underneath Michael to pop the ball out with his helmet. Carroll said it is the type of scenario difficult to practice in camp these days -- Seattle has had no to-the-ground workouts of its own.
08/19/13 - RB Christine Michael is dealing with back spasms that forced him to miss the Denver game. His availability is questionable for the Green Bay game.
08/12/13 - RB Christine Michael showed in the Seattle Seahawks preseason opener why the team selected him in the second round of this year's draft, rumbling for 89 yards on 18 carries. The Texas A&M product is a dynamic, explosive athlete with tons of potential, and perfectly fits Seattle's run-first approach on offense. However, during Seattle's first practice after the game on Sunday, coach Pete Carroll got a first-hand look at the risk involved in taking Michael that early: the rookie will be sidelined for an unknown period of time because of back spasms. "It might be a little bit before we get him back up," Carroll said. "We're working on him."

However, during Seattle's first practice after the game on Sunday, coach Pete Carroll got a first-hand look at the risk involved in taking Michael that early: the rookie will be sidelined for an unknown period of time because of back spasms. "It might be a little bit before we get him back up," Carroll said. "We're working on him." Of course, Michael had his injury concerns coming out of college. Michael suffered a broken leg and a torn ACL knee ligament in consecutive seasons that cut short playing time for the Aggies in 2010 and 2011.
04/28/13 - Seahawks turn heads with pick of Michael...The Seahawks provided another draft surprise on Friday, selecting Texas A&M running back Christine Michael with the team's first pick in the draft, at No. 62 overall in the second round. The Seahawks traded down six spots with Baltimore and still got what general manager John Schneider said was the highest-rated player on the team's board at the time. "He's a tough, intense, up-field, one-cut guy, and he's just a very good football player," Schneider said. "He's a competitor."

The Seahawks received Baltimore's second-round selection (No. 62) in Friday's trade, along with fifth-round (165) and sixth-round (199) picks. The No. 62 pick is the latest the Seahawks have waited to make a first pick in franchise history. Before that, the latest was No. 55 in 2007 (Josh Wilson). Michael's selection was a curious one for Seattle. With Marshawn Lynch rushing for a career-best 1,590 yards in 2012, and entering the second year of a four-year, $32 million deal, the Seahawks bolstered depth at what looks like an already stocked position group. - The Sports Xchange

04/28/13 - Along with Lynch, the Seahawks have second-year pro Robert Turbin, who rushed for 354 yards as rookie. Seattle selected Turbin in the fourth round last year. UCLA product Derrick Coleman fills out the depth chart at tailback. However, the Seahawks lost return specialist and change-of-pace back Leon Washington to New England when they released him in a cost cutting move. So Michael fills a hole, and adds depth to an important position group for Seattle, with the Seahawks running the ball a league-high 536 times last season. Michael will compete for time as Seattle's punt returner with Golden Tate.

Even though they have one of the best runners in the league, coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider said after Day 2 of the draft that you can never have enough running backs. "We ran the ball more than anybody in the NFL last year, so we want this position loaded up," Carroll said. "So I think that the chance to get another good, strong tough guy like we did, just adds to the theme of what we're trying to present as a team." Added Schneider: "You can't go through drafts passing on talents like Michael. When you start doing that, in my opinion is when you start making a lot of mistakes." - The Sports Xchange
