NFL Mock Draft 2012: Seahawks Select Melvin Ingram, According to SI's Peter King

With the NFL Draft so near you can almost taste it, the Seattle Seahawks are closing in on their targets to acquire this season.

Sports Illustrated's Peter King has his latest mock draft fresh out of the oven, and has the Seahawks choosing DE Melvin Ingram out of the University of South Carolina.

Here is Peter King with the commentary:

One note: Seattle will take Ryan Tannehill if he's there at 12. Write it down. If he's not, Ingram is the kind of versatile rush guy Pete Carroll could use both outside and inside; he had 25 tackles behind the line in 2011. Barron? Even with the Seahawks' terrific secondary, his addition would mean Carroll could play three thumping safeties on every down but first.

I guess when the draft is so close you can say things like "write it down" when creating a mock draft, but I stil t hink there are too many variables to make a concrete prediction. That is, of course, as long as your name isn't Andrew Luck .

Nevertheless, Ingram or Tannehill both will be solid additions bringing their unique flavor to Pete Carroll and Co. It's all a matter of who takes whom and where in the draft process.
