After a 23-20 defeat to Arizona today, the Seahawks will pick 11th or 12th overall in the 2012 NFL Draft. They will hold a coin toss with Kansas City, who beat Denver 7-3.
Had Indianapolis, Tampa Bay or Minnesota won today, Seattle would’ve avoided a coin toss. They had been picking at #14 before the final weekend of regular season play, but wins for Philadelphia and Arizona moved the Seahawks up two spots. Their ability to get lucky on a 50/50 chance will determine whether they move up even further. Seattle’s opponents for the season ended 131-125 (0.512), the exact same number as Kansas City. Recent history suggests the coin toss will take place at the combine in Feburary – that is when Jacksonville & Chicago (2010) and Atlanta and Tampa Bay (2006) held there’s.
Here are the players taken in the last three years at #11 and #12:
#11 Aaron Maybin (LB, Penn State), #12 Knowshon Moreno (RB, Georgia)
#11 Anthony Davis (OT, Rutgers), #12 Ryan Mathews (RB, Fresno State)
#11 JJ Watt (DE, Wisconsin), #12 Christian Ponder (QB, Florida State)
2012 Draft order so far:
*11-12. Seahawks/Chiefs (coin toss)
