I Agree, I thought Seattle tried to get way too cute with this draft, and ended up reaching on nearly every pick. Its almost like there was a power struggle, Scott McGloughlin was pushed out, and Schneider went out of his way to have a statement draft. Seattle could have traded all of their picks for 6th and 7th rounders, and drafted nearly the same pool of players that they drafted with with higher picks.
Arizona had a great draft, San Francisco had a great draft, St Louis Killed it, and Seattle took the weekend off. The good news for the Seahawks, is that they still get their second draft this summer, when the Niners cut down to 53. Maybe that's the draft that Schneider is preparing for.
The thing about success, is that you start to think that you are smarter than you actually are.
This draft felt to me like Seattle was trying to show the rest of the league how much smarter they are than everyone else.
