With the 12th pick in the 2012 Dawgs By Nature Community Mock Draft, the Seattle Seahawks select...

Luke Kuechly, ILB, Boston College

This selection and write-up was made by Jon @ DBN:


With the run on OLB/DEs in this draft, including Coples, Upshaw, and Ingram, all of which are possibilities for the Seahawks, I was forced to go in another direction. Luckily, Luke Kuechly isn't a bad consolation prize. Not only might he be the BPA (best player available) at this point, but he's a position of need for Seattle. Kuechly is the consensus No. 1 ILB in this year's draft class and has all the potential to become an elite linebacker in the NFL. His measurable, intangibles, and intelligence create a lethal combination at linebacker and helped him to become one of the most assured tacklers in college football. This is the kind of player that can anchor your defense for years to come.

This is the spot where I could easily see quarterback Ryan Tannehill being selected, but Jon decided to go a different direction. Inside linebackers typically do not dominate the first round of a draft, but Kuechly is being billed as one of those guys who can be an elite player. The Seahawks are kind of an exciting team when I look at them heading into the draft: they could really go in several different directions with this pick, so it'll be interesting to see what they actually decide to do.

The Arizona Cardinals are on the clock next (email has been sent to Browns town).
