Running backs worked out Sunday at the NFL Combine but San Diego State junior Adam Muema was not among them.

That's because he left the workout early, citing God's plan for him, according to a report from Michael Gelkhen of U-T San Diego.

Speaking to Gelkhen from the Indianapolis International Airport, Muema said that he was "following God" who told him that his dream of playing for the Seattle Seahawks would come true if he left.
The reigning Super Bowl champs might be a particularly tough roster to make given the presence of Marshawn Lynch, quality backup Robert Turbin and the fact that they used their first pick of last year's draft on former Texas A&M running back Christine Michael, who head coach Pete Carroll characterized this week as the team's best "breakout" candidate.

Muema, currently NFLDraftScout.com's 30th rated running back, was given a 4th to 7th round projection from the NFL Advisory Committee according to the report. The 5-foot-9, 205-pounder has good quickness and lateral agility. He does not possess ideal speed or power and projects best as a chance-of-pace back.

The fourth all-time lead rusher in school history with 2,955 yards and 34 touchdowns, including 1,244 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2013 despite being hampered early with an ankle injury. He's only the fourth Aztec -- behind Marshall Faulk, Paul Hewitt and Ronnie Hillman -- to ever put up multiple 1,000-yard seasons.

Muema is expected to work out at San Diego State's Pro Day.
