Here are the assessments from Pro Football Focus of the final five Seahawks' draftees.

Not everyone agrees with every assessment of any draft pick or draft class, and the evaluations of Pro Football Focus often draw as much scrutiny as any.

But you can’t say they don’t do their homework, with scours of evaluators who break down plays for every NFL and college football game.

So while I am sure there will be those who don’t love that PFF gave the Seahawks’ a C for their overall draft class, their evaluations of Seattle’s individual selections are worth a read.

Here’s their quick assessment of each of the last five picks, as well as a few links  (PFF’s thoughts on Seattle’s earlier draft picks were included here):

147: DT Quinton Jefferson

The Seahawks break their athletic mold for another defensive tackle. At the Senior Bowl, Jefferson posted the lowest win rate in the one-on-ones (17 percent). He did, however, have the 33rd-best grade among interior defenders in this draft class.

171: RB Alex Collins

The second Arkansas running back off the board, Collins had the 21st-best running grade in the nation last year. Collins is a straight-forward, downhill runner who has noticeable issues with rounding off his cuts. He’ll fall forward though and he averaged 3.0 yards after contact per attempt last season.

215: Center Joey Hunt

The Seahawks needed to improve their offensive line and they’re able to grab the fourth-highest-graded center in this draft class late in the sixth round. Hunt graded well in pass protection, where he allowed just three hurries in 2015, and as a run blocker. Following on from a solid 2014 season, Hunt has now graded positively in each of the past two seasons.

243: WR Kenny Lawler

Jared Goff’s No. 1 target last season, Lawler regressed a bit from his 2014 production. A big reason for his lower grade a year ago stemmed from his six drops on 58 opportunities. Still Lawler is a larger possession type receiver with two positively graded seasons to his resume. 

247: RB Zac Brooks

Brooks took only 217 snaps in our two years of grading, recording a solid +5.1 grade. He never received more than ten carries in a single game, finishing with a total of 41 totes for 243 yards and three touchdowns. Brooks added a further pair of scores through the air.
