Seahawks Trade Down, Pick Pass Rusher Bruce Irvin

Pete Carroll and John Schneider defied conventional wisdom once again, leaving the arrogant talking heads speachless once again.

The Seahawks traded the 12th overall pick to the Eagles for the 15th overall pick, plus 4th, 6th and 7th round picks.

The Seahawks then selected Bruce Irvin out of West Virginia with the 15th overall pick. Irvin is a pass rush specialist. He was listed as an OLB by the league, but will play DE for the Seahawks, either in the LEO position or coming in for Red Bryant on the other side of the line on passing downs.
