With rookie minicamp kicking off Friday, the Seahawks signed a group of 15 undrafted rookie free agents who will compete with Seattle’s nine draft picks to make their mark and battle for roster spots.
The undrafted class includes several players at positions the Seahawks weren’t able to address in the draft, including three receivers: West Virginia’s Ka’Raun White, Vanderbilt’s Caleb Scott and TCU’s Taj Williams, all of whom check in at 6-foot-1 or taller, giving the Seahawks more size at the position.
The Seahawks also added a pair of interior defensive linemen, Texas defensive tackle Poona Ford, who was a first-team All-Big 12 selection last season, and Purdue’s Eddy Wilson. Also joining the competition at defensive line is Missouri defensive end Marcell Frazier, who was a second-team All-SEC selection last season after recording seven sacks and 15.5 tackles for loss.
After drafting only one offensive lineman, Ohio State tackle Jamarco Jones, the Seahawks added two interior linemen after the draft, signing Oklahoma State center Brad Lundblade, a first-team All-Big 12 selection, and Idaho State guard Skyler Phillips, a third-team All-American and a first-team All-Big Sky selection.
The undrafted class also includes two fullbacks, Michigan’s Khalid Hill and Slippery Rock’s Marcus Martin; four linebackers, Oklahoma’s Emmanuel Beal, Texas’ Jason Hall, Northwestern’s Warren Long and Florida State’s Jake Pugh, and a long snapper, Oregon’s Tanner Carew.
Additionally, the Seahawks signed three of their nine draft picks Friday: tight end Will Dissly, a fourth-round pick, punter Michael Dickson, a fifth-rounder, and defensive end Jacob Martin, a sixth-rounder.
