2012 NFL Draft Results, NFC West: Cards, Rams, Seahawks Look For Hidden Gems In Round 6

St. Louis Rams

With the 171st pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams have selected K Greg Zeurlein out of Missouri Western. Zeurlein blew the scouts away at the combine with his massive leg. He reportedly nailed a 57-yarder to the amazement of the crowd.

Drafted So Far

First Round: Michael Brockers
Second Round: Brian Quick, Janoris Jenkins, Isaiah Pead
Third Round: Trumaine Johnson
Fourth Round: Chris Givens
Fifth Round: Rokevious Watkins
Sixth Round: Greg Zeurlein

Arizona Cardinals

With the 177th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Arizona Cardinals have selected CB Justin Bethel out of Presbyterian. Bethel is notable for a 60-inch flat footed vertical jump. He runs a 4.5 and is proficient at blocking kicks. He is an excellent special teams contributor and that is like where he will begin competing in the NFL. However, with his raw athleticism he could become a capable backup defensive back.

Arizona also selected QB Ryan Lindley from San Diego State. The Cardinals QB depth chart is really up in the air, with no clear starter, and Lindley will have as good a chance as anyone to earn playing time.

Drafted So Far

First Round: Michael Floyd
Third Round: Jamell Fleming
Fourth Round: Bobby Massie
Fifth Round: Senio Kelemete
Sixth Round: Justin Bethel, Ryan Lindley

Seattle Seahawks

With the 172nd pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks have selected DB Jeremy Lane out of Northwestern State. Lane is a good athlete with excellent speed and very long arms. He will need to bulk up, but displays good hitting and tackling ability for his size.

Seattle also selected S Winston Guy from Kentucky with pick #181. Guy will be expected to add toughness and depth to their secondary rotation and contribute on special teams.

Drafted So Far

First Round: Bruce Irvin
Second Round: Bobby Wagner
Third Round: Russell Wilson
Fourth Round: Robert Rurbin, Jaye Howard
Fifth Round: Korey Toomer
Sixth Round: Jeremy Lane, Winston Guy
