Seahawks Pick Linebacker Bruce Irvin

NEW YORK, NY - With the 15th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks pick Bruce Irvin, an outside linebacker from West Virginia.

The Seahawks were scheduled to pick 12th, but traded that to the Philadelphia Eagles for the 15th pick overall in addition to a fourth and sixth round pick. 

Irvin only played two season with the Mountaineers since he transferred to West Virginia from a junior college right before the 2010 season.  He finished his career with 22.5 sacks. 

The last time Seattle had the 15th overall pick was back in 1998 when they drafted Anthony Simmons, a linebacker from Clemson.
