Overview

2013: First-team All-Big 12 pick and Doak Walker Award semifinalist. Played in 11 games and made eight starts. Led team in rushing yards (1,177) for second consecutive season. 2012: Honorable mention All-Big 12 pick and Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year. Played in 13 games and made six starts. His 1,012 rushing yards led the team. 2011: Transferred to Baylor from Oregon and sat out season due to NCAA rules. 2010: Redshirted at Oregon. High school: Broke three Temple High School (Temple, Texas) track and field records (in 100 meters, 400 meters and long jump) as a 13-year-old eighth grader. Misc.: Oregon was placed on three years' probation and lost one scholarship for 2013 and 2014 in June of 2013 after the NCAA deemed the school had improper involvement with Willie Lyles and his Houston-based recruiting service. Lyles had a connection with Seastrunk, who committed to Oregon.

Analysis

Strengths

Quick-footed and nifty with very good competitive speed to pull away in the open field. Deceptively fast. Keeps his feet churning on contact and can elude the first tackler and power through arm tackles. Runs low to the ground with good lower-body strength. Weaves through traffic and has a knack for hitting cutback lanes. Very good run balance to stop and start.

Weaknesses

Does not run big or keep his shoulders squared to the line. Will press and try to do too much -- can improve patience and do a better job of letting his blocks develop. Very limited career receiving production. Played in an offense that featured big running lanes and helped inflate his production. Can be tracked down from behind. Beats to the tune of his own drum and can be susceptible to hanger-ons.

Bottom Line

Good-sized, productive, zone runner with enough physical traits to warrant consideration as a complementary back. Benefited from an offense featuring a lot of fly sweeps and lateral runs that have not translated well to the NFL game. Overall character will require closer evaluation and can determime draft status.
