Bruce Irvin was just the tip of the iceberg in Seattle.

The team confirmed that they reached agreement on a contract with their first-round pick on Monday afternoon, but kept going with the announcement of seven more signings. The Seahawks signed linebacker Bobby Wagner, their second-round pick, and quarterback Russell Wilson, taken in the third, to become the first team in the league to sign their first three selections.

Wilson will more likely wind up as the team’s third quarterback behind some order of Matt Flynn and Tarvaris Jackson. The team’s talked him up a lot, so it seems possible he could be the backup with a big camp. Wagner will be in the mix for snaps at linebacker, although it’s unclear whether he will wind up inside or outside.

The Seahawks also signed their fifth-round (linebacker Korey Toomer), two sixth-round (cornerback Jeremy Lane and safety Winston Guy) and two seventh-round (guard J.R Sweezy and defensive end Greg Scruggs) picks. The only unsigned draft picks are the team’s two fourth-round picks, running back Robert Turbin and defensive tackle Jaye Howard. Given how quickly the Seahawks got the other eight guys signed, it probably won’t be long before they are ready to move on to other things.
