Draft Scout Snapshot: Seattle wanted to get more speed on defense, and they achieved that by drafting the most pure pass rusher in the draft in West Virginia's Bruce Irvin at No. 15 overall. Irvin ran a blazing, 4.43 in the 40-yard dash at the combine and totaled 22.5 sacks during his two seasons at West Virginia. Coach Pete Carroll said he'll back up pass-rushing defensive end Chris Clemons, and play opposite him on third down. Carroll also drafted a quarterback for the first time since he's been in Seattle, selecting Wisconsin signal-caller Russell Wilson in the third round. The Seahawks like Wilson's skill set and leadership skills. And even though Seattle signed Matt Flynn to a multi-year deal in free agency, Wilson will get an opportunity to show how he fits into the quarterback competition with Flynn and Jackson once training camp begins in July. BEST PICK: Running back Robert Turbin: The Seahawks needed a backup running back to ease the load for Marshawn Lynch, and they get another bruising runner in Turbin. - The Sports Xchange
