Seahawks | Luke Kuechly, Mark Barron were on wish list

The Seattle Seahawks were in the hunt for a quick and explosive defender with their first-round pick in the NFL Draft. In addition to LB Bruce Irvin, who the team selected No. 15 overall, Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly and Tampa Bay Buccaneers SS Mark Barron were also on the team's wish list, according to general manager John Schneider. "Obviously we felt strongly about Barron, we felt strongly about Kuechly as well, but we really wanted to address our pass rush. And it just fell to a spot where we said, maybe if we could move back a little bit, we could still acquire (Irvin)," Schneider said.
