I want to make sure I keep up Seaside Joe’s three-years and change streak of a newsletter a day but I’m short on time this weekend. There will be many amounts of content coming up about the Seahawks draft, thank you for your patience.
Before I go, I wanted to share that list of names above because while Seattle’s string of drafts from 2010 to 2012 was indeed historic, the Seahawks also picked those 16 players. Some of them were a little okay, but many of them had no impact with the franchise or in the NFL. That’s more than five draft picks per year during the greatest three-year run in Seahawks history, and stands up there with some of the best for any franchise ever.
I think that Pete Carroll and John Schneider did an excellent job this past weekend of hitting the main goal for any franchise during a regime’s draft: If you come away with one superstar, or two to three really good starters, nobody’s going to say it was a bad draft. Bickering over “shoulda-coulda-woulda” decisions throughout the class feels unimportant to me.
Can’t wait to see what happens with these new Seahawks in the coming years… and what sort of list they wind up on in the future.
What do you have to say about Pete and John’s 13th draft class?
