The Seattle Seahawks selected Utah State running back Robert Turbin in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL draft, adding some depth in the backfield. Turbin recently sat down with SB Nation's Amy K. Nelson at the NFLPA's Rookie Premiere event to discuss his future in the NFL.
Turbin said had no idea he would land in Seattle, considering he'd only talked to the Seahawks organization once -- a 15-minute conversation at the scouting combine. The frenetic Pete Carroll is his new boss, and Turbin is looking forward to playing for the former USC coach, but he's still getting used to the NFL and the rigorous conditioning required at the professional level. Turbin said the first rookie minicamp was the most he had run in a practice before.
Turbin will back up Marshawn Lynch, who had a significant influence on him as a youth growing up in the Bay Area. Turbin watched Lynch at Cal and indicated that he's adopted a couple moves from watching him in "Beast Mode."
