SEATTLE – There’s going to be some serious competition for the Seattle Seahawks’ starting running back job.

For the second time in this year’s NFL draft, the Seahawks took a running back, this time using their fifth-round compensatory pick to take Arkansas running back Alex Collins.

The 5-foot-10, 217-pound Collins ran for 3,703 and 36 touchdowns in three seasons with the Razorbacks.

Collins was second-team all-SEC last year.

The draft has added quite a bit of competition for Thomas Rawls, who is recovering from a broken ankle he suffered last season.  On Friday, the Seahawks selected Notre Dame C.J. Prosise in the third round.

Prosise, however, is a converted wide receiver who has also played safety in college and high school.
