The biggest question mark for Thomas Rawls in 2016 will be whether or not he will be healthy enough to carry a full workload in Seattle. Rawls was set for a 3 down back role but the return from an ankle injury seems to be in a constant setback raising concerns over lingering effects throughout the season.
This is one of the more difficult valuations for 2016. When healthy, Rawls is an obvious asset on game day in an offense that is strong on the ground. My suggestion as of now is to wait on Thomas to fall into the mid to late 4th round range before making a move. There is a strong chance that he will be gone by then but there is nothing in his recent health report to suggest having strong confidence in his ability to last 16 games this season.

Original Scouting Report:
Thomas Rawls is the type of hard working RB that finds a way to stick on an NFL roster. He’s a quick to the crease back with good ability to bounce out of tackles. His first step is sudden and he can move lateral with acceptable fluidity. I would expect Rawls to hear his name called late in the draft.
