Seahawks sign Thurmond & Wilson

By Rob Staton
The Seahawks today agreed terms with fourth round picks Walter Thurmond and E.J. Wilson. It leaves just Russell Okung, Earl Thomas and Golden Tate as the remaining rookies to sign up. It'll be more difficult to sign three high picks before camp begins - although it's a challenge the new front office will no doubt thrive upon.

A lineman with size, Wilson is expected to back-up Lawrence Jackson and Red Bryant at left end. He could see some time as part of a rotation in year one but could be limited to a role on special teams. Thurmond is still recovering from an injury that hampered his 2009 season with Oregon and led to a subsequent drop on draft day. He may have some special teams value as a rookie, but his priority must be to heal up for the foreseeable future.

Rob, can you possibly break down some film on some of our later draft picks or UDFAs? I like Rob Rose and think he has a chance even though I know little about him. I'd be interested in knowing more about Dexter Davis and EJ Wilson.

Thanks, Ray :)
