The Seattle Seahawks have made it clear that they hope to revamp their run game outside of quarterback Russell Wilson going into the 2018 NFL season. It appears head coach Pete Carroll already has an idea of which player can step up.

Running back Chris Carson showed plenty of promise early on in the 2017 campaign. According to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, Carroll feels Carson is picking up where he left off:

“He hasn’t missed one snap of anything,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “He’s just looked so fit and just so cut and quick and explosive and all of that. He’s the guy that just stood out in that regard.

“He’s absolutely full steam. He has just had a great offseason. He was really frustrated about not being able to finish up last year, and he put it to work. He did it. I’m excited to see how he goes. He’s going to play really good for us when we get back.”

The Seahawks selected Carson in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft out of Oklahoma State. Despite Seattle's crowded backfield last season, Carson himself as the No. 1 back ahead of veterans Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy.

His best game came in Week 2 versus the San Francisco 49ers when he rushed for 93 yards on 20 carries. Unfortunately, his rookie campaign was cut short after suffering a broken ankle in Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts. He finished the year with 49 carries for 208 yards and seven receptions for 59 yards and a touchdown.

That said, it seems Carroll is enamored with what Carson has brought to the table in organized team activities. However, he once again faces some stiff competition this time around. Fellow running back C.J. Prosise has also caught the eye of Carroll this offseason while Seattle has invested heavily in first-round pick Rashaad Penny.
