Draft 2012

Pick No.15

Selected By: Seattle Seahawks

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 15 (15)

Pick Analysis: Irvin is a compelling prospect whose athletic ability is as unique as his path to the NFL. An electrifying pass rusher who will fit as either a specialist defensive end or an outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme, Irvin uses a flurry of moves to get to the quarterback. His uncanny ability to maneuver his undersized frame around and through offensive linemen helped him tally a number of sacks at West Virginia. A player who is hampered by his size and amount of snaps taken at a high level, Irvin should be selected within the first two rounds of the draft by a team looking for a boost in its ability to get to the quarterback.
