The Seattle Seahawks were by far the most surprising team of the 2012 season with their playoff run with a rookie quarterback. Here is the rookie class Pete Carroll has put together to make a Super Bowl run in 2013.
Seattle Seahawks Rookie Class of 2013
2nd Round: Christine Michael – Running Back
3rd Round: Jordan Hill – Defensive Tackle
4th Round: Chris Harper – Wide Receiver
5th Round: Jesse Williams – Defensive Tackle
5th Round: Tharold Simon – Corner Back
5th Round: Luke Wilson – Tight End
6th Round: Spencer Ware – Running Back
7th Round: Ryan Seymour - Guard
7th Round: Ty Powell – Defensive End
7th Round: Jared Smith – Defensive Tackle
7th Round: Michael Bowie – Offensive Tackle
Undrafted Rookie Free Agents
Matt Austin – Wide Receiver
Jordan Russos – Offensive Line
Craig Wilkins – Linebacker
Ramon Buchanan – Linebacker
Alvin Bailey – Offensive Line
Ray Polk – Strong Safety
Domonique Whaley – Running Back
John Lotulelei – Linebacker
With OTAs underway things are looking like running back Spencer Ware is going to see significant playing time at both the tailback and fullback positions in the backfield. Ware is the perfect size back to be used in both roles out the back field on his 5 foot 10 inch 229 pound frame.
Linemen Michel Bowie and Alvin Bailey should fit in on a line that needs to protect Russell Wilson a lot better this season. Last season the Seahawks had the 27th ranked passing attack due to the fact Russell Wilson was running for his life when he was not handing the ball off.
Defensive end Ty Powell and Ramon Buchanan should see a fair amount of reps since Bruce Irvin has been suspended the first four games of the season for using performance enhancing drugs. Buchanan should fit right in considering he has a pedigree NFL bloodline flowing in him.
