Keep an eye on return specialist Trindon Holliday

Someone to keep an eye out for as a player possibly on the Seahawks’ radar is LSU return specialist Trindon Holliday. The 2009 NCAA 100 meter outdoor champion, Holliday was one of the fastest players in college football last season, and said he would like to run a 4.24 in the 40-yard dash this week, the same time Tennessee running back Chris Johnson ran two years ago.

Holliday is the only player invited to the combine as a return specialist, and also said he will stay and workout with the wide receiver group later this week after he catches punts and kicks with the specialist group.

Holliday said representatives from Seattle have talked to him here at the combine, and he also talked with folks from the Seahawks at the Texas vs. Nation game a few weeks ago.

At 5-foot-5, 162 pounds, Holliday is small. But he’s a compact guy who provides more pop than his size would lead you to believe. He played mostly running back in college, but says he can play receiver at the next level. Holiday’s speed would give the Seahawks return game some much-need punch.

    It would be awesome to have a version of Devon Hester or Dante Hall or Bobby Joe Edmonds 2.0. Having someone that teams kick away from and have to genuinely account for on returns, would be a refreshing change.

    If we carried Brandon Couto on the roster, we can surely make room for a return specialist if he’s that good.

    I have watched many LSU games ( I like them and have a “ton” of their fanatics for friends from my Gulf Coast days) This kid is good over all player , I just didn’t think anyone here would like to check him out b/c of his small size. Yet, the thing I like the most about him is his SIZE !!! If he can bulk up a bit more ( even at some cost to his speed) he would be GREAT as a RB !! B/c he is so “little” , the opposing “D” (linebackers and safeties) will have problems seeing him and then he would be a handful to stop b/c of his speed and low center of gravity. He is much stronger than Warrick Dunn was in his best days.
    Honestly, I like LSU’s 6’3″ WR Brendon.LaFell and OT Ciron Black so much that I’ve forgotten all about T. Holliday. LSU Would have done much better this year if they had at least an average QB instead of….
    Thanks Eric . Great find.

  4. A la Darren Sproles…

    Yup, just faster.

    Seattle won’t have a chance, Oakland will trade up and take him in the 1st round.
