2012 NFL Draft Grades: Ranking Teams That Failed on Draft Day
No. 1: Seattle Seahawks
After one of the worst picks in the first round I can ever remember, the Seattle Seahawks didn't draft any positions of need or draft for the future.
Pete Carroll is proving why he didn't make it in the NFL the first time. Not only was Bruce Irvin a reach at No. 15, the Seahawks proved they were oblivious to their madness by celebrating their selection.
As if the day wasn't bad enough, Seattle selecting Russell Wilson, a QB that doesn't fit their offense at all, was by far the worst move of the draft. With the two worst moves of the draft, Seattle is the only team that received an F on draft day.
What is the point in showing this? Besides Wilson and Wagner, the others are very average. Their first round pick (Irvin) had a good 1st season, but had to move to a new position just to get on the field. For a pass rusher, hes had 10 sacks in 2 seasons. Yawn. Their 4th round pick, Turbin, has 618 yards. By comparison, Kendall Hunter (our own 4th round RB) has double that in only 9 more games. Turbin=Yawn. Howard did nothing for them, Toomey nothing, Lane is an depth player, Guy did nothing, they were smart and moved Sweezy to offensive line not bad for a 7th rounder, and Scruggs did nothing. So 2 (Wagner/Wilson)out of 10 were good, 2 are average (Sweezy/Irvin), and 1 is depth (Lane). Not that impressive.
