Peter King: Several Teams Liked Bruce Irvin, Russell Wilson Picks

It wasn't too long ago when most of the national media was giving the Seattle Seahawks a pretty solid ribbing for their 2012 draft picks.

Read so much of people putting down Seattle's draft as a monster reach, particularly pass rusher Bruce Irvin in the first round and quarterback Russell Wilson in the third. Funny, then, that we heard three or four GMs or personnel people on our trip say, "I loved Irvin,'' or "I would have taken Wilson. Great pick."
