Looking back and grading the entire 2018 Seahawks draft class as a group

Over the course of a week and a half we have gone through each of the players the Seattle Seahawks selected in the 2018 NFL Draft individually and graded each pick with the the benefit of a season worth of production. Obviously, voting is still open for all of the picks, so things could change, but as of the time of writing, these are the grades as voted on by Field Gulls readers for each of the individual selections the team made in the 2018 draft.

So that brings us to the question of how we should grade the draft class as a whole. Does the fact that the class is graded half A’s and half as C’s simply mean the draft class is a B? Or should we simply tabulate all of the votes for the different players and assign the grade based on the overall percentages of things?

And this is where things become less structured and less defined, and it’s up to each of you to decide individually because there is no one right way. As frustrating as that may sound, the simple fact is there are few absolutes. Coming to a final conclusion is not an absolute, as the conclusion from one perspective is most certainly going to be different than the perspective of others.

In any case, here’s the table for the cumulative grading up to this point.

So, with all of that in mind, what kind of grade do you give the Seahawks 2018 draft class with a year of hindsight?
