Seattle Seahawks 2012 NFL Draft Report Card: Grades for Every Pick

The 2012 NFL Draft is in the books and the Seattle Seahawks have been accused of putting together one of the worst drafts of recent years. The main focus is their accused reach in Round 1, ignoring the positive strides made elsewhere in the draft.

The criticism is also largely unfounded, as information has surfaced that Bruce Irvin was going to be taken in the first round whether it was Seattle that drafted him or one of several other franchises.

The one part of the draft that was surprising were the late-round picks. But this is the issue with grading a draft when it is conducted. The GMs and coaches know how they want to use players and have more knowledge about the specific strengths of each player.

If more than one of the final four players selected make the active roster, the grade will need adjusting. Also, if Irvin comes out and registers double-digit sacks, the grade instantly becomes an "A".

The 2012 Seahawk draft deserves an overall grade of a "B", if not higher. They answered their four primary needs with their first four picks and have added some impressive talent to the team.
