Thomas Rawls is ready for his role as the Seahawks starting runningback


Thomas Rawls took the place of the injured running back, Marshawn Lynch last season and ran for 820 yards. Rawls believes he will continue to succeed, and feels no pressure to perform in Lynch’s wake. “I just go out there and work hard and do my job and have an amazing coaching staff and amazing teammates to encourage me, and also my support back home. Fighting through all types of adversity, I rise up and I rise to the occasion at times like this, so it’s no pressure.” Rawls is recovering from ligament damage that incurred from an ankle break but seems to be ready to go for training camp. “Recovery is coming very quickly.”

The Seahawks may draft a running back this upcoming draft, but that would not change the likely hood of Rawls being the go-to running back next season.
