Seahawks wrap up draft class with signing of Kevin Norwood


All nine draft picks for the Seattle Seahawks are now under contract.

The team announced Tuesday they have signed receiver Kevin Norwood. He was the final draft pick to sign for the Seahawks after linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis signed earlier in the day.

Per NFL rules, Norwood’s deal is four-year contract.

Norwood and Pierre-Louis were two of three fourth-round selections by the Seahawks.

Norwood developed a reputation as a clutch receiver at the University of Alabama and was a favorite target of A.J. McCarron. As a senior, Norwood caught 38 passes for 568 yards and seven touchdowns.

In addition to the draft pick signings, Seattle also announced the signing of linebacker Horace Miller.

Miller took part in the team’s rookie mini-camp as a tryout player. He takes the roster spot of sixth-round tackle Garrett Scott, who was waived on Friday after the team discovered he had a rare heart condition that would keep him from being able to play football in the near future.
