Running back Christine Michael is getting plenty of reps since Marshawn Lynch has elected to skip OTAs so far, and Michael is making the most of it. Michael has a knack for finding the hole at the line and bursting through it quickly.
There’s no tackling at OTAs, but he would have had some big gains on several plays, and might have taken it to the house a couple of times. Coach Pete Carroll has walked up to Michael a few times after his runs to give him high fives and let him know how much he appreciates what Michael is doing in practice.
Michael isn't likely to see a significant role until Marshawn Lynch is no longer in the way, but he's very likely going to be the RB1 in a year or two. Lynch is signed through the 2015 season.
