Bruce Irvin is already having fun with the 12th man. Irvin posted a series of tweets on Thursday night after the Seattle Seahawks announced their pick.
While Irvin may not be the player Seahawks fans expected the organization to choose on Thursday, the fan base already appears to be welcoming him in with open arms. Initial skepticism, is slowly turning into contained optimism in regards to those who closely follow the team, including SB Nation Seattle's Danny Kelly from Field Gulls.

Seahawks fans have to love the swagger and confidence of Irvin. Will having a chip on his shoulder will fuel his play and make him more productive this season?
