No. 9 - Christine Michael - Seahawks running back (2013)

I hate to include Christine Michael in this list because I really liked him both as a player and as a person. But in 2013, the Seahawks did not have a first-round pick after trading it to the Minnesota Vikings for Percy Harvin. Was Percy Harvin worth a first-round pick? One could argue, based on his very limited availability and production, that he was not. However, that Super Bowl performance was absolutely worth it for me.

With their first selection in the 2013 draft, Seattle selected running back Christine Michael out of Texas A&M. C-Mike was expected to spell starter Marshawn Lynch in what was expected to be a Super Bowl-run season. However, Michael only saw the field in four games that season. In 2014, Michael saw action in ten games but was limited to only 175 rushing yards and had yet to find the endzone in his two-year career. In 2015, after three games and 192 rushing yards, Michael was traded to Dallas.

Michael found himself back in Seattle in 2016 after injuries decimated the running back room, where he had the best season of his career. In nine games, Michael rushed for 469 yards and 6 touchdowns, also adding a receiving touchdown. Michael was waived in 2017.

Who did they miss?

The very next selection belonged to the Kansas City Chiefs, who selected tight end Travis Kelce.
