With the 12th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks select:
Dre Kirkpatrick CB, Alabama
The Seahawks recently let go of longtime corner Marcus Trufant and need to stabilize the position with the 2nd best corner in the draft. Kirkpatrick had three very good years at Alabama and was a top prospect coming out of high school. Pete Carroll loves tall corners and Kirkpatrick checks in at 6'2".
He has the potential to shutdown his side of the field at the next level and that will only help the rest of Seattle's defense.
The Arizona Cardinals are now on the clock
