Compiling the quarterback rankings for the Seattle Seahawks shouldn't be that difficult. After all, it isn't as though Seattle has had that much success at the position. However, perhaps determining the worst players is the more difficult task.
The Seahawks have taken a few different routes to finding quarterbacks. Their most successful approach has actually been signing undrafted free agents. This is how they landed Dave Krieg, Jon Kitna and their current developmental quarterback, Josh Portis.
Jim Zorn was also an undrafted free agent, but he was in the Dallas Cowboys training camp the prior season.
Seattle has drafted 13 quarterbacks in its 35 years as a franchise. To date, exactly zero of them have found success as an NFL quarterback.
Just how bad has it been for the Seahawks? The best quarterback they have drafted could be Rick Mirer.
Mirer showed some promise his first two seasons. He fell off sharply after that, eventually losing his starting job to a nondescript NFL QB.
However, the reason Mirer tops my list is the Seahawks received a first-round draft pick from the Chicago Bears for his services. That pick turned into Walter Jones. Yes, getting a star left tackle is the most Seattle has done with drafting quarterbacks.
In recent days I've offered a look at the quarterbacks may look to draft in 2012 to fix this issue. I've also offered thoughts on an available free agent to take over the quarterback duties next season.
