And then there were six. Unsigned Seahawks draft choices, that is.
Friday afternoon, the first day of the team’s three-day rookie minicamp, fifth-round draft choice
At this minicamp, the 6-foot-3, 311-pound Staten is working on the No. 2 defensive line with fellow tackle
“We’d like to play him inside, at the three-technique, and give us some good big-man play there,” coach Pete Carroll said of Staten at the conclusion of the draft. “We think he can play some at the five-technique (end spot) as a swing position for him, but we’d really like for him to really solidify a spot inside. We’re looking for a big-body guy, so that’s why we’re happy to have him.”
“He’s a total thumper, man,” general manager John Schneider said after the Seahawks made Small their final draft choice. “He’s super tough, plays really low, digs guys out. He’s seriously tough.”
Not to mention signed, along with Staten and Pinkins.
Still unsigned among the team’s nine draft choices are wide receivers
