With the 15th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks have selected Bruce Irvin, a defensive end from the West Virginia Mountaineers.

Irvin is arguably the most natural pass rusher in the 2012 NFL Draft. Here is what SI.com had to say about Irvin:

Analysis: Irvin has been one of the better pass rushers in college football the past two years and has made a large number of plays behind the line of scrimmage. He projects well as a 3-4 outside linebacker yet must polish his game and learn to make plays in reverse rather than straight-ahead. He offers a good amount of upside and the potential to be a very productive NFL player in the future.

The Seahawks' next pick is the 11th selection of the 2nd round, No. 43 overall.
