Seahawks unveil undrafted rookie class

We’ve got a pretty good feeling that the Seahawks’ addition of Tarvaris Jackson will trump the combined weight of these names, but we thought we’d share the 19 undrafted rookie free agents signed to Seattle’s roster all the same.

The 19 newly employed are DT Ladi Ajiboye, DE Pierre Allen, WR Doug Baldwin, FB Dorson Boyce, DE Jarrett Crittenton, P John Gold, CB Jesse Hoffman, G Michael Huey, T Zach Hurd, S Jeron Johnson, QB Zach Lee, WR Ricardo Lockette, LB Deron Minor, LB Mike Morgan, G/C Brent Osborne, CB Ron Parker, QB Josh Portis, S Rickey Thenarse and TE Ryan Travis.

It would be a lie to say that we had deep thoughts to share about any of these players. Eric Williams of the Tacoma News-Tribune did speak to draft analyst Rob Rang from, however, and Rang pointed out Allen and Lockette as players worth watching.

Allen, out of Nebraska, had a hamstring injury that hurt his draft stock, but Rang thinks he could make the team as the final defensive end. Lockette, a Fort Valley State product, ran a 4.37 at the combine and his speed could earn him extra looks as the team works its way through training camp.

The addition of these 19 players brings the Seahawks up to a 73-man roster. That still leaves plenty of room for them to add unrestricted free agents, re-sign players and, perhaps, throw another name into the quarterback mix.
