2012 NFL Mock Draft: Devon Still Projected To Seattle At No. 12

Devon Still is all over the board on the respective Mock Drafts we've been seeing across the Internet, but one of the most common places that he lands is at No. 12 with the Seattle Seahawks. Rob Rang of CBS Sports just came out with his latest 2012 NFL Mock Draft and that's exactly where he has Still going. He explains why this has become such a popular choice.

Still, a 6-4, 310-pound defensive tackle, showed his talent and despite all of the distractions in Happy Valley last year, was the Big Ten's Defensive Player of the Year. Still could help inside at defensive tackle as well as provide the Seahawks with some flexibility at the five technique defensive end position should incumbent starter Red Bryant be heavily pursued in free agency.

The Seahawks need another playmaker along the defensive line, and Red Bryant could leave. Still is versatile enough to replace him if he leaves via free agency or play alongside him if he opts to stay.
