8 Teams That Totally Lost The NFL Draft

8. Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks are no strangers to a weak-seeming draft. Admittedly, they effectively chose the Saints' star tight end Jimmy Graham with their first round pick after trading it away as part of a deal for the red-zone predator, though that did mean a lack of sparkle in their Draft Weekend selections. DE Frank Clark and CB Tye Smith aren't sensational but they'll fit the system in Seattle, and Tyler Lockett is a solid enough third round wide receiver, while there were a few additional prospects for the future taken to pad out the draft. It was typically underwhelming for the Seahawks, though their saving grace is an outstanding coaching regime that has been proven to drill individually unspectacular players into one wild unit. It'll be interesting to see whether they can bounce back from last year's Super Bowl nightmare with another injection of youth in the side.
