SEAT­TLE SEA­HAWKS

USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - NFC WEST -

Grade: C

GM John Sch­nei­der and coach Pete Car­roll again es­chewed con­ven­tional wis­dom in the pur­suit of the types of play­ers they covet. That be­gan with Penny, who most viewed as a late-sec­ond-, early-third-round prospect. But Seat­tle sees a le­git three-down back. The Sea­hawks needed a pass-catch­ing TE to re­place Jimmy Gra­ham, so they drafted lo­cal block­ing prospect Will Dissly. That was be­fore adding the feel-good story of line­backer Shaquem Grif­fin to play with twin brother Shaquill Grif­fin.

Best pick

Rasheem Green is an as­cend­ing prospect with great ath­leti­cism who could emerge as a real im­pact player with a year in an NFL weight room.

Up­side pick

Shaquem Grif­fin is, at worst, a po­ten­tial fifthround spe­cial teams de­mon. At best, he de­fies the odds and max­i­mize his great ath­leti­cism to make a real im­pact on de­fense.
