NFL Draft rumors: Terrance West meeting with Seahawks


The defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks have Marshawn Lynch, Robert Turbin and potential 2014 breakout candidate Christine Michael on the roster, but that hasn’t stopped them from taking a look at an intriguing mid-round running back prospect leading up to the NFL Draft.

According to Gil Brandt on Twitter, the Seahawks are hosting Towson running back Terrance West for a visit.

West has also visited with the Baltimore Ravens, Minnesota Vikings, Tennessee Titans and Arizona Cardinals. The interest suggest that he has a real chance to be selected in the second or third-round of this year’s draft.

West may not have played his collegiate football at the highest level, but he has a skill set that could allow him to be a featured running back at the next level.

With Marshawn Lynch not getting any younger, West could be viewed as an eventual replacement in Seattle.
