2011 NFL Draft Grades: The Seattle Seahawks Upgrade Both Lines
The Seahawks Avoid Splashy Moves, But Initial Result Mixed
The Seattle Seahawks kept to their draft board and took the players they felt will help the team the best moving into 2011.
That is a very long way of saying the Seahawks draft is pretty boring from an analytical perspective. It not necessarily a bad thing, but it does mean instant analysis tends to drift into the negative because nobody has a real good read on what these players will do.
I think this was a very good draft for the Seahawks from a pure talent standpoint. They grabbed James Carpenter and John Moffitt, a tackle and a guard; and then they drafted K.J. Wright, a linebacker. The Seahawks also drafted several guys for the secondary.
The Seahawks are rebuilding the offensive line, fixing the defense and added a wide receiver.
Pete Carroll knows what he is doing, and the Seahawks are well-positioned to make another run at the playoffs in 2011.
Speed seemed to be the name of the game with the late-round draft picks, and speed always is a good thing in the NFL.
