2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Lache Seastrunk, RB , Baylor
After spending his freshman year at the University of Oregon, Seastrunk transferred to Baylor. He averaged over seven yards per carry in his two seasons with the Bears. A really tough runner who understands how to fall forward and fight out extra yardage. Below average to average ball security. Thick lower half with an excellent sense of balance. Can bounce off tacklers and keep momentum piling forward. Doesn't offer much as a receiver. Caught no passes in his 2013 season.
Didn't run well at the combine, but his timed speed does not illustrate how fast he is with pads on. Above-average speed. Great lateral moves. Can quickly cut and transfer his weight towards daylight. Loses little speed when changing direction. Plows through arm tackles. Stitches together subtle movements and cuts to evade would-be tacklers. Would make for a great first and second down back in the NFL. Can also move the pile on third and short. Noticeable second gear when he finds the open field and can usually pull away on long runs.
Seastrunk's draft stock is moving down and he may end up being a fourth rounder in the 2014 NFL Draft.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Plays much faster than his timed speeds, so he can be a big-play home run hitter at the right spot. Good PPR upside as well. Has little to no fantasy value as a rookie in redraft leagues. Dynasty value really hinges on whether he has a realistic shot to crack the Top 2 on the depth chart in his first year. Should be a mid-second rounder in dynasty and undrafted in redraft.
