When Bruce Irvin was drafted with the 15th pick in the NFL Draft, everyone but the Seattle Seahawks felt as if the team reached on the West Virginia sack master. Well tonight versus the Packers, Irvin is making the Seahawks look like a very bright team.  Irvin already has 2 sacks in the second quarter as the rookie infested Seattle Seahawks are up on the Green Bay Packers.

Irvin attended Butler Community College before transferring to Mt. San Antonio College. While at Mt. San Antonio Irvin had 72 tackles, 16 sacks, three forced fumbles and a touchdown  on a fumble recovery. He was named a JC Athletic Bureau first team All-American and was the all-California Region III player of the year.Irvin transferred to West Virginia University in 2010. He finished the season second in the nation in sacks with 14. He was a second team all- Big East selection and an honorable mention All-American by SI.com.

Tonight, Irvin is making the Seattle front office look intelligent, as he has already been able to beat one of the best offensive lines in the NFL, twice.  Expect more from the rookie before the game is up.
