Smitty’s Take: According to reports, Seahawks RB Chris Carson has been running with the starters through day one and two of training camp. Rashaad Penny was drafted 27th overall in this year’s NFL Draft, but Carson is a huge roadblock sitting in Penny’s way. I think Carson will have to be nothing short of amazing (all year) in order to hold off Penny (given the first-round investment). Carson didn’t flash brilliance last year, but he had a few solid outings, which had him well on his way to getting his shot at starter carries. Then he got hurt. If we had to predict the outcome here, Penny starts after a few weeks. Carson will stay in the mix for 1/2 the workload for a big chunk of the year if Penny doesn’t look the part of a #1 rusher.
