The Seattle Seahawks made some unorthodox moves in the 2012 NFL Draft, but despite their insistence in having a game plan and sticking to it, the analysts and evaluators feel as though the team seriously underperformed with their selections.
Sports Illustrated has released their complete grades for the 2012 NFL Draft. Here is how the Seahawks fared:
Seattle Seahawks: Oh right, this is how Ingram made it to San Diego — the Seahawks went bonkers and picked Bruce Irvin at 15. Could he develop into a solid pass-rusher? Sure, but this was a spit take-inducing selection. LB Bobby Wagner (47) and RB Robert Turbin (106), both from Utah State, will help, and QB Russell Wilson (74) has a bright future, even if Seattle didn’t really need him. Everything else was … very … blah. Grade: C
The Seahawks will look to prove a lot of analysts wrong in the 2012 season and beyond.
