The Seahawks have reached a deal with another of their fourth-round picks.

According to the NFL’s transaction log, the club signed outside linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis on Tuesday. This leaves another fourth-round selection — Alabama wide receiver Kevin Norwood — as Seattle’s lone unsigned draftee.

The No. 132 overall selection, Pierre-Louis (6-0, 236) recorded 360 tackles (23 for loss) in 44 games for Boston College from 2010 through 2013. He was timed at 4.51 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine, tops among linebackers. In his first NFL season, Pierre-Louis could be counted upon to provide depth behind a solid group of veteran linebackers.

The Seahawks began a three-day set of organized team activities on Tuesday.

  1. Wow 4.51 speed?

    That’s great speed for a man designated to run to the medical facilities and supply the team with performance enhancers.

    He could run there & be back in under 5 minutes.

  2. Never heard of him.

    He should realize though that this team is on the decline.

    8-8 is the best outlook next season with a offense with no dominant receivers and a running back who’s bound to have a major decline due to his age and running style will decline for the rest of his career.

    The defense won’t be able to do what they did last year also without all the performance enhancers.

    The Vikings > Seahawks.

  3. Just another in a long line of outstanding athletes the Seahawks collect. They will coach him up an turn him into another Super Bowl MVP.

  4. K.J. Wright hits the market when his deal ends. Cannot have them all at big bucks. Rotating LB’s is necessary when the LOB is the priority. Somebody will get a solid player. Jacksonville or Dallas is my guess.

  5. One guy left.
    Meanwhile carpenter us fifteen pounds lighter
    and Scruggs is completely healthy.

    Hawks are going to be better

  6. Great signing he’s among the top 2 most athletic linebackers to come out this last year . He’s gonna sit in a pretty competitive lb core but he’s got the speed and athleticism to contribute right away on special teams .
    He’s easily one of the best lbs in the draft and one of the least known guys that Pete likes to groom .

  7. Fans are very high on this guy. KPL’s SPARQ score was second only to Ryan Shazier among LBs at the NFL combine.

    If you don’t know what SPARQ is, you probably should find out. It’s a big part of the way Seattle evaluates talent, and this being a copycat league, you’ll only be hearing more about it in years to come.

  8. Good luck to the Hawks and all 31 other teams. I am wishing all these young men well.

  9. I couldn’t believe how athletic he looked at the combine and sometimes that doesn’t translate for players but watching game clips the guy lined up everywhere from edge rusher, blitzing up the middle and holding the middle.

    Seahawks linebacker group is very under-rated and I think KPL will start out as a special teams stud from the start. Ken Norton Jr. will have him ready when he gets his chance as a linebacker.
