Danny Kelly of SB Nation's Seattle Seahawks blog "Field Gulls" talks about the sudden rise of Chandler Jones to a possible #12 pick to Seattle: "I do find it very peculiar that Chandler Jones is a guy I literally can't say I've ever seen mocked to the Seahawks in the first round, before about a day ago, but is now the pick for Mel Kiper (who, apparently at the last second, just changed his pick to Melvin Ingram, but the point stands), Todd McShay, and Danny O'Neil. To say Jones' rise has been meteoric might be an understatement. I'm sure that people that follow the draft very closely will point out it might have been more gradual, but regardless, he's not a guy we've talked about a ton so it does come as a surprise to me. Now, in principle, I don't like the idea of my team taking a player that until just recently has been mostly mentioned in the 2nd round discussion, but as we saw last year with the selection of James Carpenter in the 1st and even Kris Durham in the 4th, the Seahawks go by their board and they go by their board and they go by their board. So, really, taking Jones at 12 wouldn't really go against the grain for what this front office has done in the past." Go read their full analysis of the potential pick and Jones as a player.
