    Yeah, Mel Kiper has been spot on with the Seahawks. Grades them in the C’s and D’s every year then makes excuses why after they out perform his expectations. Saying Seattle has the best player development program in the NFL. Sure, when you draft a QB and he takes you within a game of the NFC Championship his rookie year then wins the SB the next year, it’s player development. Had nothing to do with his skill set coming into the league. Pete just turns QB’s into leaders and amazing in game decisions makers. Seems legit. Kiper is a joke with his grading system and everybody knows it. I have no idea why ESPN pays this guy for shoddy research?
