Seahawks an example

Now that the Seattle Seahawks raised the Lombardi Trophy to cap off a dominating season, all general managers across the league go to work. Teams are going back to the labto determine what the blueprint for their respective teams will be. The Seahawks built their team like everybody else: Through the draft and free-agency.

So what set the Seahawks apart from everyone else? Well, let's start with the head coach- Pete Carroll. After a mediocre tenure as an NFL head coach with the New York Jets in the '90s, Carroll packed his bags and took his talents to college football. It was there that Carroll found his winning ways. Carroll brought a winning and positive attitude to the Seahawk organization.

Through the draft, the Seahawks obtained their most notable players: Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman. Both of these players were not drafted in the first round. In fact, Wilson wasn't getting the attention Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Ryan Tannehill got in 2012. Sherman, on the other hand, was drafted in 4th round. He now is the best cornerback in the game. This is the kind of stuff that separates an organization from others. Only few front offices have the ability to evaluate talent well.

So what should your team focus on for next season?
