2012 NFL Mock Draft: Seattle Sehawks Should Pick Melvin Ingram According To Greg Cosell

The Seattle Seahawks are coming close to filling out their whole front seven. What they really could use is a solid pass rusher to really complete their team, and they might be able to fill that need out in the 2012 NFL Draft.

NFL Films expert Greg Cosell breaks down the tape on the top players in the draft and tries to evaluate which player is needed the most by each team. In his estimation, the Seahawks should pick South Carolina defensive end Melvin Ingram to further bolster their pass rushing needs with the 12th overall pick.

The most intriguing front-7 player comes off the board to the Seahawks. Melvin Ingram is remarkably athletic for his body type (6’1½", 264 pounds at the Combine). He aligned all over the South Carolina defense: DE, DT, LB. He was the movable chess piece looking for matchups to exploit. At times he moved like a running back with his lateral agility and nimble feet. Don’t overreact when I say this, but his spin move was reminiscent of Dwight Freeney. He had that kind of explosive quickness.
