2014 NFL Draft grades: Seattle Seahawks


When you win the Super Bowl you don’t have many glarind weaknesses on your squad and that’s the case for the Seattle Seahawks who could get an A for their offseason for extending Earl Thomas and Richard Sherman alone.

Best pick: Paul Richardson:

Worst pick: Justin Britt

Analysis: Richardson is as fast as any receiver in the draft and will immediately help fill the void left by Golden Tate. Britt was a reach to me at the end of the second round, but he does fill a need for the Seahawks at either guard or tackle. Cassius Marsh was another reach for me in the fourth round, but they did well in drafting Kevin Norwood out of Alabama. He is one of the more solid players at any position in the draft. Plus, he comes from a winning program, so he should fit in nicely in Seattle.

If you’re looking for a sleeper from the later rounds, look not further than Kevin Pierre-Louis who is as fast as they get at outside linebacker. He is going to be a fun one to watch in Seattle’s defense.

Grade: C+

    It really cracks me up when people say the Seahawks reached for a player, as if they have any clue.
