Seahawks Sign 8 Of 10 Draft Picks

The Seahawks didn't waste any time signing the majority of their draft class as they came to terms with eight of the their 10 draft picks Monday.

The most notable of the Monday signees was first-round pick Bruce Irvin, who became the first player chosen in the first round to sign. The Seahawks selected Irvin, a defensive end from West Virginia, 15th overall in last month's NFL draft. There was a time when first-round picks wouldn't sign until July or August, but the recently modified CBA simplified the process.

In addition to Irvin, Seattle also signed second-round pick Bobby Wagner, third-round pick Russell Wilson, fifth-round pick Korey Toomer, sixth-round picks Jeremy Lane and Winston Guy and seventh-round picks JR Sweezy and Greg Scruggs.

Of the 10-player draft class, only fourth-round picks Robert Turbin and Jaye Howard remain unsigned.
