NFL Draft 2012 2nd Round: Seahawks Trade Back with Jets

The Seattle Seahawks moved back in the first round to acquire a few more picks and they have done so once again early in round two.

The deal moves the Jets up to the 43rd overall selection and the Seahawks get Nos. 47, 154 in the fifth round and 232 in the seventh round.

With the pick, the Jets selected talented wide receiver Stephen Hill from Georgia Tech. The Seahawks will be selecting shortly.

There are numerous ways the Seahawks could go with their 47th overall pick. After drafting a linebacker in the first round, a wide receiver or defensive lineman could be in the cards.

NFL Draft Results 2012: More On Seahawks' 1st Round Pick Bruce Irvin

The Seattle Seahawks traded down in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft on Thursday, swapping with the Philadelphia Eagles and picking up an extra two draft picks in the process. In moving from No. 12 to No. 15 overall, the Seahawks then made a fairly curious selection as their first-round pick, picking West Virginia Mountaineers defensive end Bruce Irvin.

Irvin was a name that had not really been tied to the Seahawks and, in a round of many unexpected picks, stands out as being particularly unusual. Irvin is not a bad pick by any means -- in fact, he's a very good pick -- but he lacks name power, star power and the excitement of a "bigger" name selection.

Irvin was listed as the fifth-ranked outside linebacker in the Mocking the Draft pre-draft ratings. Here is what they had to say about him:

Bruce Irvin is all about speed and suddenness with the ability to create a ton of pressure. He possesses an explosive first step that allows him to get up field and threaten the edge. However, it is his non-stop motor that really makes him dangerous as he never stops pursing the football. Offensive tackles really struggle to protect the edge against Irvin because of his quickness off the football.

Creating pressure is important but you need to be a complete player to really make an impact in the NFL. Irvin needs to spend time adding bulk and strength to his frame. His ability to improve his run defense will go along way to improve his draft stock. Irvin will also need to spend time learning the ins and outs of pass coverage as he is rarely asked to drop.

Overall, Irvin has all the physical tools to be a dominant pass rusher in the NFL. He is athletic enough to make the adjustment from defensive end to outside linebacker. Improving his run defense and adding some new pass rush moves will be something evaluators look for this season.

Seahawks fans, don't hate this move yet. This may just be your favorite player in a couple of years.

Eagles-Seahawks Trade: Philadelphia Takes Fletcher Cox With Seattle's No. 12 Overall Pick

The first round of the 2012 NFL Draft on Thursday night has seen no shortage of last-minute trades, swaps and moves, many of which range from eyebrow-raising to outright shocking.

The most significant trade for the Northwest involves the Seattle Seahwks trading down in the order, as the Philadelphia Eagles were desperate to move up and ensure they could select Mississippi St. Bulldogs defensive tackle Fletcher Cox.

In exchange for their previous No. 12 spot, the Seahawks receive the Eagles' No. 15 pick, as well as overall picks Nos. 114 and 172, meaning that Seattle will receive an extra pick in the fourth and sixth rounds.

A great move for Seattle, as they only lose three spots and pick up two extra players for their trouble.
