Upon the conclusion of the 2020 NFL Draft, reports and rumors began to fly regarding undrafted free agents and their NFL destinations.

We’ve been tracking all the priority free agents connected to the Seahawks since the draft ended, and now we know five to be confirmed.

On Friday, Seattle confirmed the signings of Washington State QB Anthony Gordon, Washington WR Aaron Fuller, Mississippi OT Tommy Champion, Albany EDGE Eli Mencer, and Texas A&M CB Debione Renfro.

Of the initial five UDFAs signed by the Seahawks, the former Cougar Gordon appears most likely to win a spot on the roster. Expected by most to be selected on day three of the draft, after an absurd season which saw him throw for 5,579 yards and 48 touchdowns, Gordon could provide Seattle with sound backup quarterback play at the lowest possible cost.

Fuller, a senior for the Huskies in 2019, caught 159 passes for 2,051 yards and 13 touchdowns in his college career, while also returning punts.

Champion, a 6-foot-5, 320-pound tackle, started six games during his time with the Bulldogs. Announced by the team as a tackle, Champion started at both left guard and right tackle in college.

As a senior, Mencer was named FCS All-American second team, and All-ECAC first team after recording 14.5 sacks, 24 TFLs, and five forced fumble. During his college career, Mencer totaled 21.5 sacks.

Finally, former Aggie cornerback Renfro possesses the size of a Seahawks CB, listed at 6-foot-2 and 195 pounds. Renfro left Texas A&M after his junior season, going undrafted.

Seattle is expected to announce the signing of another nine undrafted free agents. As of Friday, these are the five to be confirmed.
