NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens talks about Seattle’s 2013 NFL Draft class in comparison to the classes of other teams. I do not believe you can grade a draft class for at least 3 years. Before that you are grading the team on player potential and not production. There is a reason Mel Kiper works for ESPN and not an NFL franchise. Maybe later this offseason I will take a look at the 2010 Seahawks draft class, the first class of the Pete Carroll and John Schneider era.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brett Bivens recaps the team’s seventh round pick, Ty Powell. Brett says most experts feel Seattle could look to him as a depth option as a situation pass rusher behind Chris Clemons, Bruce Irvin and Cliff Avril. Powell recorded 40 tackles, with 15 for loss, and 8.5 sacks during his senior season. Powell is the first player from the Arkansas school to be drafted in 30 years. Powell played defensive end, linebacker and safety at Harding.
