Forsett Compared to Frank Gore

by: Michael Steffes

Wow, now here is something I haven't heard up until now. In their weekend article of insider news and notes, PFW has compared Justin Forsett to Frank Gore, or at least their source did. Interesting comparisson.

We hear Seahawks seventh-round RB Justin Forsett, the first Seatttle rookie to sign on the dotted line, has reminded more than a few onlookers of similarly undersized Niners featured back Frank Gore with his impressive burst and quickness.
Forsett is an inch shorter, 40 lbs lighter, and comes with about 4 less rounds of draft pedigree. That said, Forsett is probably much quicker in short spaces than Gore, especially since the multiple knee surgeries Gore endured. Besides for making the team, the question with Forsett is whether he will ever be able to take the pounding of carrying a full load in the NFL. In that regards he may be better compared to Warrick Dunn.

Also mentioned in this article is that Pat Murray can out lift everyone on the team, or so said Rob Sims several weeks ago, when we first heard about him having gained 10 lbs of strength. PFW notes that he is up to 320 lbs. END
