The 2019 NFL Draft is officially over, and now it’s time to see which undrafted free agents will be picked up. We know that the Seattle Seahawks have thrived off of UDFA gems, with Doug Baldwin being the best example.
Last year’s crop was mostly cut or put on the practice squad (which applies to most UDFA classes), but Poona Ford made his way onto the 53-man roster and could show himself to be a major factor in Seattle’s defensive line rotation for years to come. Other Seahawks UDFAs who have made the 53-man roster and contributed over the years include Jermaine Kearse, Thomas Rawls, George Fant, and DeShawn Shead. Oh yeah, and also Chris Matthews, for whom Seattle never makes Super Bowl XLIX without his onside kick catch in the NFC Championship Game.
This is the place where we’ll keep track of the UDFA signings throughout the weekend.
Note: These are rumored moves, or moves announced by players/agents. The Seahawks won’t officially announce their UDFA signings and minicamp invites until Monday.
