We should add some lightning to our double thunder of LeBackfield. We know Haley loves a Scatback and knows how to implore one as a great change of pace weapon. Here are a few options.
Check out some highlights of Dri Archer from Kent State.
He was the fastest RB in the combine and almost broke Chris Johnson's record. Watch how he just races past people.
DeAnthony Thomas is another Scatback that is just a bit bigger than Archer, but still small at 178 pounds. He is all muscle though. Watch how well he follows his blocks. He is extremely quick and elusive.Lache Seastrunk
Although, not a true Scatback, Lache Seastrunk is a more versatile back that not only has the quick feet, but is much bigger and could possibly be a good overall back-up if any of LeBackfield fall to injury. He also was in for a pre-draft visit so the Steelers do have an interest.
Tough choice as I would love any of the above. If I had only one to choose my first choice would be Seastrunk as a true back-up. He seems to be a bit of a Shady McCoy in some ways. He really is a great fit for zone blocking. He might not have as many flash plays but he would be much more capable of carrying the load if needed. It would be nice to have DeAnthony Thomas or Dri Archer as well. Take your pick. They are both incredible in the open field. Would love to see either of those be our Scatback and returner that could break things open every time he touches the ball.
Who do you choose and why? If there is another option out there please share we should consider as well.
