Although they haven't been talked about much, the rushers have probably had the biggest rise in stock this preseason. This is not because Marshawn Lynch has really shined, but that was to be expected. The real story here is the backup backs, rookie Robert Turbin, Leon Washington and Kregg Lumpkin.
Out of Utah State, Turbin was drafted as a backup and a type of safety net to Lynch after he signed his big contract. But in this preseason, he has shown that he has a lot more to offer. He has carried the bulk of the carries for Seattle, and although he hasn't had a breakout rush, he has gotten solid yardage and has helped move the chains. His five receptions also have shown that he has more versatility than expected.
Lumpkin and Washington are fighting for a spot on the roster. Washington is almost guaranteed a spot due his abilities in the return game. But Lumpkin may be reconsidered for a spot on the roster due to his recent showings. He has racked up around four yards a carry and a touchdown and has broken out in a way.
If you stop looking at individuals and start looking at the overall unit, you'll see how amazing they have been so far. In two games, they have rushed for over 360 yards and two touchdowns. If this has just been a preview, I can't wait to see the final product this season.
