Seahawks close 2023 draft by selecting Georgia running back Kenny McIntosh

 With the final pick in the 2023 draft, the Seahawk’s Georgia running back  Kenny McIntosh.

The former Bulldog started 14 of 15 games last year and was the team’s leading rusher and third wide receiver with  43 catches for 504 yards. McIntosh rushed for  829 yards on  150 carries last year. Off all the players drafted by the Seahawks none were more appreciative than McIntosh.

Before the draft, the Seahawks had two running backs and now they have four backs.   Starter Kenneth Walker II and Dee Jay Dallas are returning with  Walker II guaranteed playing time. It is going to be one heck of a training camp this Summer. Seahawks running backs coaches Chad Morton is the best at bringing out the best in his players. The dogfight in the running back room will be between Charbonnet and McIntosh.   Both are big backs who can run and catch the ball 


McIntosh should make the 52-man roster and will probably swing from game to game when it comes to suiting up.  While he might not make an immediate impact McIntosh can be a long-term answer to the Seahawks running back corps.
