  • Kenneth Walker III Could Be Three-Down Back

    Seattle Seahawks running back Kenneth Walker III is expected to see a ton of snaps as a rookie. Head coach Pete Carroll mentioned the team would feel comfortable with Walker as a three-down back. The second-round rookie is currently competing with Rashaad Penny for the No. 1 role in Seattle. It sounds like Penny is ahead of Walker right now, but that could quickly change before the beginning of the season. Regardless, Walker is likely to make a significant impact during his rookie campaign.

  • Seahawks Sign Three Picks, Finalize Draft Class

  • Kenneth Walker III Signs Rookie Deal

    The Seattle Seahawks signed second-round rookie running back Kenneth Walker III to his four-year rookie deal on Tuesday. Walker was one of the top running backs in college football in 2021 and should play a pretty big role alongside the injury-prone Rashaad Penny in Seattle's backfield this year after Chris Carson (neck) announced his retirement from football. Penny and Walker are in line to serve as the team's primary early down options in the backfield, and given Penny's lengthy injury history, Walker will make for an excellent handcuff. The 21-year-old might also have some standalone value as an RB3/flex in deeper leagues, although Seattle's offense could struggle with Drew Lock and Geno Smith their options at QB.

  • Kenneth Walker III Slowed By Hamstring Injury

    Seattle Seahawks head coach said that rookie running back Kenneth Walker III and wide receivers Bo Melton and Dareke Young have all been dealing with hamstring issues during mandatory minicamp this week. The hamstring injuries probably aren't too serious, but the Seahawks won't take any chances with a month to go before training camp. Walker could have a significant opportunity in his first NFL season if Chris Carson (neck) can't recover from a serious neck injury in time for the regular season. We all know about Rashaad Penny's extensive injury history as well, so between Carson and Penny's injury history, Walker could step into significant snaps at some point in 2022.
