Under head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider, the Seattle Seahawks draft strategy has always been about finding players that fit their scheme, no matter where they are ranked.
It was for the draft 5 years ago that I wrote my first article for NFLFemale. I don’t remember the exact title but I believe it was something along the lines of “Who the hell is Bruce Irvin?”.
I wrote about how Seahawks fans were quite confused about the first round pick, but trusted Pete and John to do the right thing. I think most fans agree Irvin, now with the Oakland Raiders, worked out well. In fact the 2012 draft, which also included QB Russell Wilson and linebacker Bobby Wagner, is considered one of Seattle’s best drafts ever.
