How did we fare?
The million dollar question is ... Who are these people??? This is one of the most bizarre draft classes for the Seahawks that I can remember. We know that rookies won't always be all stars right from the start, but at the end of the season as I review this, I don't even know who half of these players are. I can't think of a year like this since I've had my site up and running.
2013 - We've heard of Michael Christine as he got some playing time in the 2013 season. Upon completion of the season, Coach Carroll had this to say of Christine: “He probably has the most breakout potential of anybody because you haven’t seen him yet. We’ve seen him. We know he can do very special stuff. He played in a very competitive position. It was hard to get in there with Marshawn and Robert Turbin there, but he’ll give those guys a lot of run when we come back to work. He’ll grow a lot from year one to year two. We all know in our program he’s going to be very explosive and a really exciting guy.”
Jordan Hill had two biceps injuries, played in 4 games, and was not active for the Super Bowl.
Chris Harper from K-State (GO CATS!) was traded to San Francisco and then the Packers in his rookie season.
Jesse Williams was placed on IR with a knee injury. His claim to fame in his rookie year is that he became the first native Australian (sigh!) to win a Super Bowl ring after Seattle's victory in Super Bowl XLVIII.
2013 - Tharold Simon, arrested for immature behavior preceding the draft when his ego got the best of him, was placed on IR for the 2013 season.
2013 - Luke Willson, ah, finally a name we recognize! Wilson to Willson was a thing of beauty throughout the season, and Willson played in all 16 games in 2013. Coach Carroll said of Willson, "He's been a fantastic draft pick for us, an incredible draft pick.
2013 - Spencer Ware played in two games, carried three times for ten yards, was on IR due to an ankle injury, got a DUI in January 2014 and missed the championship game and the Super Bowl.
2013 - Ryan Seymour was signed to the practice squad, released and then signed by the 49ers in 2013.
2013 - Ty Powell was released, signed with the Giants and then with the Bills in 2013.
2013 - Jared Smith, aka Fat Rabbit, is ... um ... wait a second. Fat Rabbit??? “They said I was fast as a rabbit. And I was also fat.” Life is funny in that peculiar way, isn't it? Wiki says Fat Rabbit was placed on IR.
2013 - Michael Bowie played in 9 games in 2013 and had a promising start in the NFL.
