NFL Mock Draft 2012: Seahawks Might Select Arkansas QB Tyler Wilson In The Second Round

The Seattle Seahawks have some very specific needs to fill in the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft. Many mock draft websites and analysis has picked apart who the Seahawks might draft in the first round, but let's take a look at a potential second-round option for the team.

DraftTek already suggested that the Seahawks would use their first-round pick to acquire outside linebacker Zach Brown. In their second round breakdown, DraftTek goes on to suggest that the Seahawks would select Arkansas Razorbacks quarterback Tyler Wilson in the second round as the No. 44 overall pick. Here is what they have to say:

Wilson has been a fast riser this year after successfully taking over the starting job for the Razorbacks. The 1st team All-SEC QB threw for a solid 3,422 yards and 22 TD's with only 6 INT, which is even more impressive when you take into account that he did it while facing many of the best defenses in college football. While he doesn't have the howitzer of an arm that Mallett possesses (few QB's do), his arm strength is more than adequate and he should have no problem making all the throws at the next level. However unlike his predecessor, Wilson is far more mobile (4.7, 40 time) and excels at throwing on the run. While he would probably be better served by staying another season (potentially be a Top 10 pick in 2013), if he does declare I would be more than happy to see him drafted in round 2 and in Seahawks blue come August.

If the Seahawks do end up waiting until the second round to select a potential future quarterback for the franchise, Wilson may well be the best option still on the board at that time.
