Biggest Winners of the 2015 NFL Draft

17) Seattle Seahawks

This is a Seattle blog, so of course I’m going to include the Seahawks.

Look guys, I don’t know Frank Clark. I know that he did something bad, but I’m not going to define him as a person by the one thing I know about him. On the field, he’s a really good player. He has one of the best bull-rushes I’ve seen from a 4-3 DE. He has the strength to flatten anyone on the field and plays hard through the whistle. He will be a fantastic add for Seattle in terms of depth on the D-line. Something they sorely missed in 2014. And I love the Tyler Lockett pick. He will make an immediate impact on special teams, and I think a big future impact at WR. I also really like Glowinski.

However, there are some head-scratchers in this group. I know, I know. Pete Carroll and John Schneider have drafted better than anyone in the league over the past six years, and it’s not close. So I will give them some benefit of doubt, but I also have to grade what I see.

From what I can tell, Poole, Smith and Murphy are UDFA-caliber players at best. Poole in the fourth round is especially puzzling. Not a good scheme-fit, and not athletic enough to make it in the NFL, regardless of scheme, in my opinion. I’ve heard him talk, and he sounds like a great guy, but I just don’t see it on film.

Sokoli and Gwacham are both wild cards. They are both athletically dominant players who need a lot of polish. They are good practice squad candidates.
