2012 NFL Draft Results: WVU OLB Bruce Irvin Selected By Seattle Seahawks With 15th Pick

With the 15th pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected West Virginia Mountaineers defensive end/outside linebacker Bruce Irvin. Irvin is rated as the No. 5 overall outside linebacker in this year's draft, according to Mocking the Draft.

Irvin totaled 40 tackles, 14.5 tackles for a loss and eight sacks as a senior defensive end for the Mountaineers. Irvin will likely wind up as an outside linebacker, according to Mocking the Draft:

Bruce Irvin is all about speed and suddenness with the ability to create a ton of pressure. He possesses an explosive first step that allows him to get up field and threaten the edge. [...] Overall, Irvin has all the physical tools to be a dominant pass rusher in the NFL. He is athletic enough to make the adjustment from defensive end to outside linebacker.
