Seattle Seahawks 2014 NFL Draft Review

By John McMullen, NFL Editor

(SportsNetwork.com) -

2 (45) - Paul Richardson, WR, Colorado; 2 (64) Justin Britt, OT, Missouri; 4 (108) - Cassius Marsh, DE, UCLA; 4 (123) - Kevin Norwood, WR, Alabama; 4 (132) - Kevin Pierre-Louis, OLB, Boston College; 5 (172) - Jimmy Staten, DT, Middle Tennessee State; 6 (199) - Garrett Scott, OL, Marshall; 6 (208) - Eric Pinkins, FS, San Diego State; 7 (227) - Kiero Small, RB, Arkansas;

Top Picks Analysis: The Super Bowl champs probably deserve the benefit of the doubt but their draft didn't look all productive, especially early on. The Seahawks traded out of the first round before reaching for undersized speed threat Paul Richardson at wide receiver in the second.

Richardson is a one-trick pony who can run by just about everyone but the least physical corner in the game could maul him at the line of scrimmage. Turn around the classic cliche when talking about Richardson in the NFL, he's a boy among men.

The team's other second-round pick, Missouri tackle Justin Britt, was certainly a selection at a need position but he was given a late-round grade by most scouts. Britt isn't very physical and spent most of his time working out of a 2-point stance in a spread-option offense at Mizzou.

Best Value Pick: Alabama WR Kevin Norwood, a fourth-round pick, has a better chance to help this team than Richardson. Norwood has some size at 6-foof-2 and should be able to help on special teams right away.

Questionable Calls: Call it a tie between Richardson and Britt, a pair of second-rounders who shouldn't have been breached in the conversation until the third day.

Summary: Call it a Super Bowl hangover. Two of the best in the business -- Seahawks GM John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll -- came up empty this time around.

FINAL GRADE: D

Undrafted rookie free agent signings: S Dion Bailey, USC; LB Brock Coyle, Montana; TE Chase Dixon, Central Arkansas; QB Keith Price, Washington; OT Garry Gilliam, Penn State; OT Andu Pulu, Eastern Michigan; DE Jackson Jeffcoat, Texas; OG Bronson Irwin, Oklahoma; CB Jimmy LeGree, South Carolina
