The 2014 NFL draft was an exciting event. We saw players go earlier and later than expected, as well as some eye-popping trades. Even in all this excitement, the Seattle Seahawks managed to compile a pretty boring draft class.
That being said, boring isn't necessarily bad.
They strayed away from some bigger-name players who carried some risk but got themselves some quality talent in names who aren't as known. Granted this is already a talent-filled roster that didn't have many holes to fill, but they surely grabbed some guys who will produce for them.
In looking at draft grades for Seattle's class throughout the Interweb, the name that comes up most in the positive pile is Paul Richardson. The Colorado speedster is somewhat small but plays much bigger than he is—not to mention he plays with tremendous speed.
While Richardson is a draft pick that Seattle can feel confident about, the other player it drafted in the second round, Justin Britt, has received a mixed bag of reactions from the graders on this list.
While some believe he will no doubt start right away as the complementary bookend to Russell Okung, others are concerned with his injury history and aren't completely sold that he's ready for such a major role yet.
Britt was a tipping point in many writers' grades, pulling in both negative and positive reviews from graders. Even so, he clearly has talent and was a part of a pretty solid overall draft class for Seattle.
