Seahawks sign four draft picks, eight UDFAs

posted by Curtis Crabtree - 

RENTON, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks announced the signings of four draft picks and eight undrafted free agents ahead of the start of the team's rookie mini-camp Friday afternoon.

Safety Tedric Thompson (fourth round), tackle Justin Senior (sixth round), wide receiver David Moore (seventh round) and running back Chris Carson (seventh round) all signed their four-year rookie contracts with the team. 

While the terms of the agreements were not announced, the league's rookie salary system indicates all four will receive deals with minimum base salary requirements with varying amounts of signing bonus depending on their draft position.

In addition, the team announced their undrafted free agent class.

Skylar Howard, QB, West Virginia
Algernon Brown, FB, BYU
Jordan Roos, G, Purdue
Tyrone Swoopes, TE, Texas
Darreus Rogers, WR, USC
Jeremy Liggins, DT, Mississippi
Nick Usher, DE, UTEP
Otha Peters, LB, UL-Lafayette

The signings of the undrafted class brings the roster to a full 90 players.

Seattle also waived/injured fullback Malcolm Johnson on Thursday and signed tight Bryce Williams to their roster.

The Seahawks begin their rookie mini-camp Friday afternoon. Veterans are not able to take part in the camp. Only "veterans" without accrued NFL service time and tryout players can workout with the rookie class.

One other significant item of note involved Seattle's scouting staff. Senior personnel executive Ed Dodds is leaving the team after 10 seasons with the organization to become the V.P of Player Personnel with the Indianapolis Colts.

Dodds is a highly respected scout in the league and will be a significant loss to Seattle's front office.
