When people talk about NFL stars who were found in the late rounds of the draft, there are a few names that are always brought up. Tom Brady, Richard Sherman, Bo Jackson, Terrell Davis… it’s a long list. The western divisions in both conferences have a tendency to find these players regularly and turn them into superstars. Let’s take a look at this year’s picks and see if there could be another future star.

The 2018 season for the Seattle Seahawks started out with a lot of pessimism. Media and fans had basically written this season off as a rebuilding season. A throwaway year as the team got their young players up to speed. But as we head into week 12, the Seahawks have proven that the team never bought into that narrative.
Seattle is smack dab in the middle of the playoff hunt after their win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. The team was determined to keep their win streak in Carolina, now having won in Carolina the last 4 times they’ve met there during the regular season. It was a must-win game if the Seahawks wanted to keep their foot in the postseason.
This win, along with the wins over Green Bay and Dallas, has the media changing their tune about Seattle. At the beginning of the season, Seattle was in the bottom 5 of the power rankings. Now they are top 10.
