On Wednesday, Russell Wilson sent out a tweet including a photo which ridiculed members of the media who gave failing grades back in 2012 to the Seahawks front office for their draft day decisions. As you can tell, Wilson and the Seahawks had the last laugh.

Bleacher Report's Donald Wood gave the most humorous reasoning of all in retrospect.
Pete Carroll is proving why he didn’t make it in the NFL the first time. Not only was Bruce Irvin a reach at No. 15, the Seahawks proved they were oblivious to their madness by celebrating their selection. As if the day wasn’t bad enough, Seattle selecting Russell Wilson, a QB that doesn’t fit their offense at all, was by far the worst move of the draft. With the two worst moves of the draft, Seattle is the only team that received an F on draft day.
Yikes! That was the buttfumble of draft statements. Woods wasn't alone, but Woods' critique stood stuck in Wilson's craw. Overall, I'd say the analysts who gave the Seahawks a failing grade flunked the 2012 Draft.
