The Seattle Seahawks’ draft history as a whole is unremarkable at best.  While there have been some shining exceptions—Shaun Alexander and Walter Jones to name names—as a whole, the group is disheartening to hopeful fans.

Yet every April as the draft rolls around, Seattle diehards put their entire faith in a ritual that has almost never worked for their favorite franchise (except in 2005—obviously Seattle’s front office did something right there).

This April, with the lockout leaving veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck unsigned and the Seahawks largely leaderless, the headlining position to be drafted by Seattle is quarterback.

Most expect Seattle to use its 25th-overall pick on one of a group of quarterbacks classified as “good but not great” by ESPN’s Todd McShay (specifically, Washington’s Jake Locker).

Sadly, the quarterbacks taken by Seattle in previous drafts do not offer any more confidence than McShay’s prognosis.  In fact, Seattle’s most prolific quarterbacks weren’t acquired by Seattle in the draft at all. Matt Hasselbeck was traded from Green Bay and both Jim Zorn and Dave Krieg were signed as undrafted free agents.

Of the 15 quarterbacks Seattle has drafted since 1976, here are the top 10.
