The Seattle Seahawks 2012 draft class was absolutely panned by near enough every body with an opinion on the subject.
Well after winning the Super Bowl in New Jersey on Sunday, Quarterback - and 2012 draftee - Russell Wilson wanted to remind everyone who doubted Pete Carroll and his staff just how wrong they were.
Yesterday, Wilson tweeted out a picture of that draft class celebrating complete with the comment: "The 2012 @seahawks draft class. They graded us as an F. Now we are World Champs! #GodisGood #GoHawks"
It's believed that Wilson is referring specifically to a review on the Bleacher Report website which said:
"After one of the worst picks in the first round I can ever remember, the Seattle Seahawks didn't draft any positions of need or draft for the future.
Pete Carroll is proving why he didn’t make it in the NFL the first time. Not only was Bruce Irvin a reach at No. 15, the Seahawks proved they were oblivious to their madness by celebrating their selection.
As if the day wasn’t bad enough, Seattle selecting Russell Wilson, a QB that doesn’t fit their offense at all, was by far the worst move of the draft. With the two worst moves of the draft, Seattle is the only team that received an F on draft day.
It may owe to hindsight but revenge is certainly welcome in all walks of life, and the Seahawks and Carroll have definitely proved there doubters wrong.
