Sam’s Film Room: Akrum Wadley is the RB that the Seahawks desperately need

Akrum Wadley is one of my favorite players in the 2018 NFL Draft. He’s a dynamic runner when he has the ball in his hands and he’s one of the most scheme versatile running backs in the class. I actually still remember the first game I watched him play live. It was the Iowa game against Michigan when the Hawkeyes pulled off the upset beating the undefeated Wolverines. That game was...
