With the 205th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected LSU defensive lineman Pep Levingston. And with the pick, Seattle finally broke its streak of defensive back picks, switching gears and filling a need on the defensive line. Seattle fans were waiting for a defensive line pick and the position was seen as a serious need ahead of the draft. But as the picks kept coming in, the Seahawks kept ignoring the defensive line spot, instead putting it off until the early-seventh round.
Levingston checks in at 6-foot-3, 292 pounds and should slide in as depth on the line. The most logical fit for him in Seattle would be in a Red Bryant type role, where he will likely play as a backup should he make the roster.
