RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Everyone knows about Seattle stealing quarterback Russell Wilson in the third round of last April's draft and perhaps finding the franchise quarterback so many NFL teams seek.
But he's not the only rookie the Seahawks drafted in April who is making a huge impact.
From defensive end Bruce Irvin to linebacker Bobby Wagner to running back Robert Turbin to a pair of seventh-round picks who made the 53-man roster, the Seahawks can look on the 2012 draft with pride for some of the gems they uncovered. Seven of the 10 players the Seahawks selected have become major contributors.
Wilson and Wagner have had the most impact, but Irvin leads all NFL rookies with eight sacks and Turbin is coming off his first 100-yard rushing game.
