The Seattle Seahawks had a busy time during the last weekend of April, as the NFL draft meant several days of non-stop attention while teams filled their rosters with youth and dreams of another Lombardi. However, many players who had hoped to hear their name called during the draft never got that opportunity, leaving them to the mercy of the undrafted free agent frenzy.
Friday, nearly a week after the draft, the team officially announced the fifteen UDFAs that had been added to the 90 man offseason roster. They are as follows:
- Emmanuel Beal, linebacker from Oklahoma,
- Tanner Carew, long snapper from Oregon,
- Poona Ford, defensive tackle from Texas,
- Marcell Frazier, defensive end from Missouri,
- Jason Hall, linebacker from Texas,
- Khalid Hill, fullback from Michigan,
- Warren Long, linebacker from Northwestern,
- Brad Lundblade, center from Oklahoma State,
- Marcus Martin, fullback from Slippery Rock,
- Skyler Phillips, guard from Idaho State,
- Jake Pugh, linebacker from Florida State,
- Caleb Scott, wide receiver from Vanderbilt
- Ka’Raun White, wide receiver from West Virginia,
- Taj Williams, wide receiver from Texas Christian and
- Eddy Wilson, defensive tackle from Purdue.
In all, it’s a rather balanced group, with seven offensive players, seven defensive players and one special teamer. In the next day or two I’ll provide more information on each of the players, and take a look at each of them individually on a very basic level.
