It was almost funny how all the draft guys were almost making excuses for Seattle. Saying stuff like "they must know something we don't" and "their track record is better than ours". The facts are constantly killing in the late rounds is an unsustainable feat. Of course you can hit every now and again, but the odds of doing it consistently is very low. The facts are if they really knew dick Sherman and Russell Wilson were going to be as good as they are they would have taken them a lot higher. Teams in every draft get late round steals, however the narrative around Seattle is they set it up this way.
they've raped their drafts in years prior and be proven to be dead wrong in those particular years. cant remember which one it was but either 2011 or 2012 draft was given a lot of flack from most experts and turned into a great one for them. knowing that, if they disagreed with some of their 2014 picks, understandably these experts arent going to be as quick to dismiss the 2014 selections given the fact they're defending champions and have proven said experts wrong in years previous.
