Get to Know Glen Coffee

Julius Jones wasn't a resounding success in his first season and though I think Jim Mora and company will give him a second shot, I also think Seattle will add running back talent through the draft. Seattle's next back should be cheap, fit a one cut zone blocking system, have some top end speed and pass the Tim Ruskell sniff test.

The name that springs to mind for me is Glen Coffee. Coffee is projected to go in the second day. Exactly when depends a bit on how he performs at the Combine. Cracking the third would be an accomplishment. He's a one-cut rusher that brings a little fight to the defender. You'll read knocks on his size, he's ~6'1" and plays at ~200, but Coffee ripped up his local Rivals event.
