John Schneider and Pete Carroll built the Seahawks into Super Bowl contenders using three strong drafts to start their tenure.
Of their 28 draft choices from 2010 to 2012, 17 contributed in some fashion, a dozen became full-time starters and six have been named to the Pro Bowl at least once. Those three drafts were a great foundation for consecutive Super Bowl appearances.
Then there was 2013. It was a bad draft year for the entire NFL — and Seattle certainly didn’t buck the odds.
Christine Michael’s somewhat surprising return to Seattle and Jordan Hill’s latest injury are reminders.
