"That's my favorite candy," Turbin said on 710 ESPN in Seattle earlier this week.
(Note to Skittles: Send an extra box of the stuff to Seattle for games this year).
Turbin, a fourth-round draft pick out of Utah State, will add a different element to the Seahawks' backfield this year. He's a thumper who might be even more physical than Lynch as a runner. Teams won't get to relax when Lynch comes out of the game. If anything, the Seahawks might use Turbin on the goal line to bludgeon opponents.
Turbin has been a fan of Lynch for a while.
"I watched him when he was at Cal and I was still in high school," Turbin said. "So I tried to take some of the things that he did when he was on the field because he's really good. I did that with a lot of backs."
