Livingston was the 205th overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft, and was the only defensive lineman that the Seahawks selected. The 'Hawks currently are working on resigning DT Brandon Mebane to fill some of their holes in their D-line, but Levingston may prove to have some value this season as a possible back up at multiple positions. Levingston was drafted to supply depth up front, and will likely compete for playing time as a backup to Red Bryant, or elsewhere along the line. He recorded 70 tackles and three sacks in his career at LSU, where he actually was converted from a defensive end to a defensive tackle his senior season.
The 6-foot-4, 292 pound Levingston could see quite a bit of playing time if Bryant's comeback from knee surgery doesn't happen as quickly as planned, and as the only D-lineman drafted this season he is going to have an uphill climb battling against NFL veterans for any possible playing time.
