Lache Seastrunk: 'I feel I don't have any weaknesses'

Thirty-two teams passed on him for five full rounds before the Washington Redskins took a chance on Lache Seastrunk.

The rookie running back who teamed with Robert Griffin III at Baylor believes his new employer has uncovered a gem.

"I feel I don't have any weaknesses," Seastrunk said this week, per John Keim of ESPN.com.

While the rookie has been praised for his good balance and breakaway speed, teams do, in fact, see flaws. Seastrunk struggled mightily as a pass blocker and dropped an outrageous 10 of 19 passes in two seasons with the Bears.

"Everyone drops balls," said the rookie. "Calvin Johnson drops balls, so I'm not worried about that."

Fair enough, sir, but Jay Gruden acknowledged Seastrunk "has a long way to go." Washington's new coach expects the runner to be more of a "guy that can spell Alfred (Morris) and hit the home run" than a "third-down guy who's catching the ball."

Meanwhile, our man Gregg Rosenthal didn't list Seastrunk on his docket of rookie backs who figure to make an impact come September.
