Redskins rookie camp Report – Lache Seastrunk, running back - 5-9, 200

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden is known for using a fast change of pace running back on third downs.  Last season he used rookie running back Giovani Bernard very well in this position with the Cincinnati Bengals and he’s stated he wants to find a back to fill the spot in relief of starter Alfred Morris in the Redskins offense.

So they drafted running back Lache Seastrunk in the sixth round to come in and compete for the job.  Seastrunk has good speed and flashed tremendous play making ability in college at Baylor, although he wasn’t really used much as a receiver in their scheme.  However, Seastrunk has proven to have decent hands so far in training camp.

But catching the football and running routes out of the backfield is an obvious are where he needs to improve.  And like most young running backs coming into the league, pass protection is key area that they must master before they are really trusted to get a lot of playing time.  But Lache Seastrunk has obvious ability as a runner and has displayed good raw talent.

It just needs to be refined some before he’s ready for more.  Right now he’s behind second year back Chris Thompson on the Redskins depth Chart.  But how Lache Seastrunk performs in the preseason may determine if he makes the team or not.
