The 2016 NFL draft is fast approaching and there are several questions ahead of it.

Will the Cleveland Browns draft a quarterback? What way will the Dallas Cowboys go and could we see Tennessee trade away the top pick?

Next Lynch

When it comes to runningbacks in this year's draft, we have some interesting names about to enter the league.


Do the Seahawks still need another runningback? Have your say by signing up now to become a GMS writer:

Ohio State star Ezekiel Elliot is believed to be the first runningback taken but, but 2015 Heisman Trophy winner out of Alabama Derrick Henry is somewhat of a wildcard.

Henry is receiving interest from a number of teams but talking recently on NFL Network, Henry revealed that he will be visiting the Seattle Seahawks.

For the last five years, it has been unthinkable to link the Seahawks with a big name runningback with Marshawn Lynch suiting up for Seattle.

Lynch has now retired and whilst back up Thomas Rawls did a very good job when Lynch was injured last year, the team may still elect to draft another option.

Henry will be visiting the Seahawks and although he seems reluctant to be named as the replacement for Lynch, he is excited about a trip to visit the former Super Bowl champions.

Henry will also be paying visits to the Carolina Panthers and the Cowboys and where he will be spending his rookie year is a big mystery.

As for the Seahawks, adding Henry to a back field consisting of Rawls and Christine Michael would be a very strong move.

Missing the run?

The Seahawks made a run to the play- offs last season but a lot was put into the hands of quarterback Russell Wilson.

Wilson exhibited a previously unseen passing game last year after pretty much all of their options at runningback got injured last season.

Now the Seahawks - a team who have been in recent years known for their dangerous rushing offense are a team without a running game... for now.
