The Seahawks have been an average drafting team since entering the NFL in 1976. They've never drafted a Hall of Famer. And they haven't drafted well at quarterback, including busts Dan McGwire (1991) and Rick Mirer (1993). They've been more successful drafting running backs and offensive linemen, who make up six of the top 10 picks in team history, according to our ranking system.
