Tuesday Round-Up: ESPN, NFL Executives Grade The Seahawks' Offseason

Mike Sando at talked with NFL executives from around the League and handed out report cards for all 32 teams.

Good afternoon, 12s. 

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Tuesday, June 6 — about your Seattle Seahawks: 

Grading The Seahawks' Offseason

For ESPN Insider, former Seahawks reporter Mike Sando talked with 15 NFL executives, coaches, and evaluators to help him hand out offseason report cards for each of the League's 32 teams. Sando comments on Eddie Lacy's addition to the run game, Bradley McDougald's signing in the secondary, and Luke Joeckel joining Seattle's offensive line before highlighting the team's work in the early rounds of the 2017 draft and giving the Seahawks a "B" grade.

Here's an excerpt from Sando's Insider piece:

They stockpiled draft choices, ultimately using two in the second round and four in the third. No team in the common-draft era (since 1967) has used more picks in the second and third rounds. Only the 1976 Seahawks, 1994 Rams and 2009 Patriots have used as many.

"That is amazing," an exec said. "That is a lot of bodies. What they tried to do was rebuild the backbone of their team, the rank and file. Did they do that? Maybe they did, but they didn't find the superstars that get you to 13-3. I'm not sure anyone can do what they did in 2010 and 2011. The odds are against it no matter how good you are. There is a plan. When you have a plan, there is a chance."
