Seahawks take Utah State RB Robert Turbin in fourth round

Good morning from Day 3 of the NFL Draft with the fourth round now underway. The Seahawks have already made the first of their seven picks, taking Utah State RB Robert Turbin.

Turbin, who is listed at 5-foot-10, 222 pounds, is the type of big-bodied back who can back up Marshawn Lynch in Seattle's running game. He ran a 4.50 40-yard dash at the combine and had a 36-inch vertical leap, pretty athletic numbers for a big back.

We'll have more on Turbin in a few minutes after we hear from him on a conference call, but in the meantime here's a nice on the struggles he's had to go through in his life.
