NFL draft: Redskins draft Baylor RB Lache Seastrunk 186th overall
Question of the Day
The Redskins drafted Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk in the sixth round of the NFL draft on Saturday afternoon.
Washington acquired that No. 186 pick by trading down with the Tennessee Titans. The Redskins were originally set to draft at No. 178. They also grabbed the Titans’ seventh-round selection in the trade, No. 228 overall.
Tennessee selected Louisiana State quarterback Zach Mettenberger with Washington’s original sixth-round choice.
Seastrunk spent two seasons at Baylor after transferring from Oregon. He was a big-play back with 19 touchdowns combined – five of them came on plays 68 yards or longer - and averaged 7.7 (2012) and 7.4 (2013) yards per carry. He doesn’t have much of a track record as a pass-catching running back, though. Baylor didn’t complete a single pass to him in 2013. He caught nine balls the year before, including that 68-yard touchdown.
“I feel like I proved it in the combine, I proved it at my pro day, Seastrunk said when asked about his receiving skills out of the backfield. “I just feel like if you give me an opportunity, I know I’m going to utilize it and do everything in my power to help the Redskins be an even better organization.”
