Explosiveness/Suddenness – From stance to start, you would be hard pressed to fined another player in the country that gets to full speed quicker than him. When he sticks his foot into the ground, he explodes through the hole, into cuts, and away from defenders. He is a quick twitch runner.
Elusiveness – Seastrunk is bottled lightening. He shows glimpses of Reggie Bush in his running style. His body control and elusiveness are unmatched by any other RB in the country at this stage in their careers.
