Assessing Need: Fullback

Fullback

Starter:

Potential Starter: Owen Schmitt

Age: Turned 25 February 13.

Health: Immortal.

Contract: Two years remaining.

Performance: Good run blocking; bad pass blocking.

Position need: Schmitt once upon a time blocked for Steve Slaton. That, and his need for abuse, makes me think he could be an Alex Gibbs type. Hard to know. Hard to know how many snaps will feature a fullback in Bates offense. Seattle will surely add a camp body or three to contest for snaps, but I think Schmitt adequately fills Seattle's needs, whatever they are.
