Final Analysis

These are two positions that had a surprising amount of movement this offseason, but for the better. If they can close the deal on Finley when he’s cleared medically this group will have earned a solid A, but until then there’s nothing super special about this group as far as acquisitions go. Still, I think there is no doubt the Hawks did not regress in these areas and there was plenty of opportunity to fall into that trap with all of the other priorities this offseason.

I think Kiero Small is more valuable than probably 99% of the graders out there, but that’s ok. Yeah it’s not flashy and left a lot of disappointment but in tandem with the return of Zach Miller and drafting of Justin Britt, the Seahawks are clearly showing commitment towards continuing their physical play. While it certainly doesn’t jump out like the drafting of Christine Michael last season, it’s a solid, experienced group that returns.I think that is very important to what the Seahawks have become as a team under Pete Carroll.

(Combined) Overall Offseason Acquisition Grade: B
