Grading Seahawks' Rookies After the First 2 Weeks of 2012 Season
Matt Kartozian-US PRESSWIRE

The Seattle Seahawks received harsh criticism following their 2012 draft.  ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper, Jr. gave the Seahawks a C- grade, tied for the lowest grade in the NFL this year. 

Although we’re only two weeks into the regular season, I think it’s safe to say the Seahawks draft class has exceeded expectations.

First, a quick recap of the Seahawks 2012 draft, in order:

Round 1:  Bruce Irvin, DE, West Virginia

Round 2:  Bobby Wagner, OLB, Utah State

Round 3:  Russell Wilson, QB, Wisconsin

Round 4:  Robert Turbin, RB, Utah State;  Jaye Howard, DT, Florida

Round 5:  Korey Toomer, ILB, Idaho

Round 6:  Jeremy Lane, CB, Northwestern State; Winston Guy, S, Kentucky

Round 7:  J.R. Sweezy, RG, N.C. State; Greg Scruggs, DE, Louisville

Of the Seahawks’ 10 draft selections, only fifth-round pick Korey Toomer failed to make the 53 man roster.  An obvious choice to receive an F, Toomer has been excluded from the rankings as he was released from the practice squad just last week.

Lets take a look at how the remaining Seahawks' draft class has fared thus far, from highest to lowest grades.
