NFL Draft Results: Seattle Seahawks' 1st Rounder Slammed In Draft Grades

Perhaps the best NFL Draft Results news for St. Louis Rams fans: The Seattle Seahawks, their permanent rivals in mediocrity, made one of the most confusing draft picks in recent memory in the first round, choosing Bruce Irvin—a pass-rushing specialist with character questions who was nowhere near the first round on any draft board—with the No. 15 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. He might get to Sam Bradford a few times in the next five years, but some people think Irvin could have gone as late as the third round if the Seahawks hadn't pulled the trigger.

Later results proved a little more promising. No. 47 went to Bobby Wagner, a quick linebacker who could be starting soon, while at No. 74 they went with a quarterback prospect in Wisconsin's undersized Russell Wilson. Other picks:

No. 106: Robert Turbin, RB, Utah State
No. 114: Jaye Howard, DT, Florida
No. 154: Korey Toomer, LB, Idaho
No. 172: Jeremy Lane, CB, Northwestern State
No. 181: Winston Guy, S, Kentucky
No. 225: J.R. Sweezy, DT, North Carolina State
No. 232: Greg Scruggs, DT, Louisville
