Seattle Seahawks DE Bruce Irvin has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
Fantasy Tip: Irvin, the team's first-round pick in 2012, was set to become a big part of their defense, so this is a big blow for the first quarter of the season. With Chris Clemons (torn ACL) out, too, the depth of Seattle's D-line will be tested early. The signing of Cliff Avril looms large now.

That's in sacks and tackles for losses and knocking balls loose and all that stuff."

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said the team was not planning to use their first-round pick in the NFL Draft on West Virginia LB Bruce Irvin, who went to the Seattle Seahawks, and hinted that they wouldn't have used their second-round pick on him, either. "Not at 16, I can tell you that much," Ryan said, when asked if the Jets were planning to select Irvin. "He was a guy we certainly did a lot of stuff on. We liked Bruce Irvin as a player, but not ahead of the first two guys we took."

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll went the unconventional route once again with the selection of DE Bruce Irvin in the first round. Irvin was considered a second-day pick and the Seahawks passed on the likes of Quinton Coples, Melvin Ingram and Chandler Jones, who were all available when they took Irvin, a situational pass rusher. Carroll said Irvin is the type of player who puts fear in offensive tackles. He is expected to solely be a pass rush option to begin with, but Carroll and general manager John Schneider believe he can eventually develop into an every-down end.

Twenty NFL Draft evaluators named North Carolina DE Quinton Coples as the most likely defensive end bust in this year's draft class. "His interviews are so delusional in terms of him thinking he's one way and everybody else saying that he's another," one personnel man said. "If he doesn't have it in him, people will be waiting for something that's not going to happen." Coples led with 5 1/2 votes, while Memphis DT Dontari Poe and Penn State DT Devon Still each received 3 1/2 votes. "Love Poe's ability," one scout said. "Don't like the way he plays. Pretty good kid. Quiet. Humble. Country. Pretty well-spoken. But he doesn't know what he doesn't know. If you tell him that he doesn't play hard, he's like,'Really?'" West Virginia DE Bruce Irvin received three votes, Michigan State DT Jerel Worthy received 2 1/2 votes and Louisiana State DT Michael Brockers and Illinois DE Whitney Mercilus received one each.
