Report Card Grades for Seattle Seahawks Undrafted Free-Agent Signings
Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

Ever wonder what happens to football prospects after Mr. Irrelevant is selected with the final pick in the NFL draft?

Depending on what they bring to the table, some get the chance to choose which team they believe gives them the best shot at following their dream.  

This year the Seattle Seahawks, after making 11 selections in the draft, invited nine undrafted free agents (Seahawks.com) to camp, but it wasn't easy according to general manager John Schneider:

“This was the hardest rookie free agent period we’ve had. Pete was recruiting like crazy just now. We were negotiating with a bunch of guys and once you know that guys are making very hard decisions to come with you, that’s when you know when you’re improving.”

When you think about it, it makes sense.  Unlike a few years ago when the Seahawks began rebuilding under Pete Carroll and Schneider, attracting undrafted talent is difficult given the team's roster is far more established.   

Two summer's ago Stanford wide receiver Doug Baldwin caught on after signing as a UFA, but for every Baldwin there are dozens of others that don't make the squad. 

For the Seahawks this year, do any of these players have a chance?

Let's take a quick look to see how the team fared in its signings by handing out grades for each position addressed with the understanding that most of the players here probably won't make the roster, but of course you never know with Pete Carroll in charge.
