Well, it's finally upon us boys and girls, the 2012 NFL draft is here. Actually, it's still a day away, so there's still time to make some predictions that may or may not come true as to whom the Seattle Seahawks will select this season.
One man making these prediction's is Sports Illustrated's Don Banks, who released his 7.0 mock draft on the eve of the draft, selecting defensive end Melvin Ingram out of the University of South Carolina.
Here is Banks with the commentary:
The pass rush and linebacking help is where the need is the greatest in Seattle, and Ingram would address and upgrade both areas. But I could also see Seattle vacating this slot, trading down with a team eager to come up and get Michael Floyd, Michael Brockers or Mark Barron.
I think Banks hits the nail on the head with the commentary, but they'll have to keep their fingers crossed that a talent like Ingram is still available at No. 12. Hopefully he is, because he certainly would be a great fit with Pete Caroll and his staff.
