2012 NFL Draft: Penn State Standout Devon Still Mocked To The Seattle Seahawks

Great defensive linemen are hard to find and highly coveted. Luckily for Penn State defensive tackle Devon Still, that's exactly what he's expected to be.

Still has been rising up draft boards since the start of the 2011-12 college season, and is a popular pick in the top half of most mock drafts.

In this post-Senior Bowl mock, Ryan Van Bibber of SB Nation has Still going 11th overall to the Seattle Seahawks. This would make sense for the Seahawks on a lot of levels.

First, most experts feel that Still's best scheme is the venerable 4-3 defense that Seattle employs. Secondly, the Seahawks could definitely use a big body in the middle to help push the pocket and stuff the run. Still could make Pete Carroll's defense dominant after it already ranked ninth in yards against last year.

Seattle rated 15th against the run, something Still would be expected to help in a big way. The 310 pound giant would be an excellent addition to a rapidly improving unit.
