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.

Wed, 02 May 2012 07:23:24 -0700

The Seattle Seahawks were in the hunt for a quick and explosive defender with their first-round pick in the NFL Draft.

"Obviously we felt strongly about Barron, we felt strongly about Kuechly as well, but we really wanted to address our pass rush.

Seahawks | Bruce Irvin will be situational rusher

Fri, 27 Apr 2012 09:50:49 -0700

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.

Tue, 24 Apr 2012 12:48:35 -0700

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.
