NFL Mock Draft 2012: Seattle Seahawks Select Michael Brockers From LSU In First Round

The Seattle Seahawks just missed out on the playoffs this past season and the team appears to be right on the cusp of the postseason. A strong showing at the 2012 NFL Draft would go a long way in achieving that goal. It seems like a new mock draft is out every day or so, and this latest update from SB Nation has the Seahawks going with a defensive lineman in the first round. Check it out.

12. Seattle Seahawks, Michael Brockers, DT/DE, LSU

Brockers might not look like the most obvious fit for the Seahawks, but they cannot pass on this kind of talent. Pete Carroll has a knack for getting the most of his players. He will find a way to utilize Brockers' natural talent.

This would definitely be a bit of a surprising pick, especially with there being multiple needs pressing on both sides of the ball, but there is no denying that Brockers could become a star at the next level with the proper coaching. He was a force in the SEC this past season.
