I was thinkin today at work at how good this past year's draft was for rooks, and then i was thinkin about how the Seahawks drafting hasnt been great at all in the past few years.
So i went through the past 5 or 6 years and couldnt believe some of the names that teams have gotten and how the 'Hawks level of picks has somewhat diminished since the days we drafted Steve Hutchinson, Waltor Jones and Shaun Alexander.
I didnt want to include the 06' draft since we cant expect our guys we drafted to perform well their first year in the NFL with a new team and system.
Here is the past few years of the draft for the 'Hawks:
(I bolded the named which turned out to be very good picks)
1: Chris Spencer, C Ole Miss
2: Lofa Tatupu, ILB USC
3: David Greene, QB Georgia
4: Leroy Hill, ILB Clemson
4: Ray Willis, OT Florida State
5: Jeb Huckeba, LB Arkansas
6: Tony Jackson, TE Iowa
7: Cornelius Wortham, LB Alabama
7: Doug Nienhuis, OT Oregon State
1: Marcus Tubbs, DT Texas
2: Michael Boulware, OLB Florida State
3: Sean Locklear, G North Carolina State
4: Niko Koutouvides, ILB Purdue
5: D.J. Hackett, WR Colorado
6: Craig Terrill, DT Purdue
7: Donnie Jones Jr, Punter LSU
1: Marcus Trufant CB Washington State
2: Ken Hamlin FS Arkansas
3: Wayne Hunter OT Hawaii
4: Seneca Wallace QB Iowa State
4: Solomon Bates ILB Arizona State
5: Chris Davis FB Syracuse
6: Rashad Moore DT Tennessee
7: Josh Brown K Nebraska
1: Jerramy Stevens TE Washington
2: Maurice Morris RB OREGON
3: Anton Palepoi DE Nevada Las Vegas
4: Kris Richard CB USC
5: Terreal Bierria S Georgia
6: Ryan Hannam TE Northern Iowa
6: Matt Hill OT Boise State
7: Craig Jarrett P Michigan State
8: Jeff Kelly QB Southern Mississippi
I know you cant always get a stud, but besides 2003 where we got Trufant, Josh Brown and Ken Hamlin, i think we havent been doing that well overall. Morris and Hackett could be good picks in the future and Seneca and Hill wernt too bad of picks.
I wanted to see what your guys thoughts were, because this year we dont get a 1st round pick, so we are left with our 1st being toward the end of the 2nd round and have to hope for some late goldmine like Colston was or Josh Brown in 03'
