My story today focuses on the critics of the Seattle Seahawks draft class.
I had an opportunity to talk with Rob Rang, senior draft analyst for NFLDraftScout.com. Rang, who gave Seattle’s draft efforts a C grade, explained why some draft analysts have a lukewarm opinion of the Seahawks’ draft class.
Rang: “They selected players with very unique traits that are very intriguing,” Rang said. “But at the same time, they’re definitely raw. So they’re going to have to coach these guys up, and Pete’s good at that. They’re going to have to turn these guys into something that they haven’t demonstrated in the past.
“There’s some roll of the dice, so to speak. It’s just going to be interesting to see if these players can take advantage of it.”
