Beast Mode is entering the 9th season of his illustrious career and he has meant everything to the Seattle Seahawks offense over the last four years and there is so much to love about him. His 35 touchdowns scored over the last 3 seasons is better than anyone in the league and his touches within the offense is enough to make him your first pick.

However, there are some things do dislike, like the fact that since 2011, Lynch has carried the ball an average of 300 times each season, making you wonder just how much is truly left in the tank for Beast Mode. The last 15 backs to carry that same stat all battled injury the following seasons, and, all saw a significant drop in the amount of carries they received.

Still, it’s Marshawn Lynch were talking about here and he’s well worth any risk. It would be hard to be mad at someone if they made him the fourth overall pick in your draft.

If he can stay healthy, Lynch will once again be the focal point of Seattles offense, making him the 6th best running back option for 2014.
