For a guy who plays a devalued position, behind a solid starter, and who was chosen in the sixth round of the NFL Draft and not the first, Lache Seastrunk has plenty of confidence.
“I feel I don’t have any weaknesses,” Seastrunk said, via John Keim of ESPN.com.
One of the things that is somewhat less than a strength is his pass-catching ability (or lack thereof). He caught just nine balls at Baylor, but they didn’t throw to backs often there, and Seastrunk insisted his drops weren’t an out-of-control issue.
“I felt it was always there. They just never threw me the ball and I continued to work on it when I didn’t get the ball because I felt the opportunity would present itself… Nothing against [Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty] he wanted the home run ball. Who doesn’t?”
When Seastrunk did get his hands on the ball at Baylor, he ususally did something with it, rushing for 2,189 yards and 18 touchdowns in two seasons there. He also has a high-profile supporter in quarterback Robert Griffin III, but it could take him some time to carve out a niche in Washington.
