Prior to making his first appearance in left field last week, Brad Miller had a clear message.

The Seahawks signed receiver Deshon Foxx Monday, adding another undrafted rookie who had participated in rookie minicamp on a tryout basis earlier this month. He replaces running back Demitrius Bronson, who was waived/injured with a hamstring injury. If Bronson, who spent much of last season on Seattle's practice squad, clears waivers Tuesday, he will revert to injured reserve and not count against Seattle's 90-man roster limit.

Brad Miller still thinks of himself as a shortstop, but for now getting into the lineup means playing elsewhere with Chris Taylor having taken over that role for the Mariners.

At least two tryout players who participated in last weekend's rookie minicamp did enough to merit a longer look from the Seahawks.

Because the Seahawks sometimes like to do things a little differently, they picked Buffalo defensive tackle Kristjan Sokoli in the sixth round, then announced the pick as guard Kristjan Sokoli.

Yes, folks, it appears the Seahawks plan to "Sweezy" Sokoli, turning him from a lightly-regarded D-line prospect into a very athletic guard.

Obum Gwacham made the very unusual transition from receiver to defensive end prior to his senior year at Oregon State, a move coaches encouraged to improve their depth on the line, as well as his chances at a pro career. The move paid off for Gwacham Saturday when he was picked by Seattle in the sixth round of the 2015 draft.

The Seahawks looked to a small-school prospect, Townson’s Tye Smith, with their fifth round pick. Smith, a 6-foot-1, 195 pound cornerback, certainly fits the size requirements of a Seattle cornerback, but will be seen by some as a reach considering where he played his college ball.

The Seahawks addressed one of their more obvious needs with a pair of fourth-round picks, drafting two offensive linemen.

After waiting longer than any team to make their first pick in the 2015 draft, the Seahawks didn’t wait long to pick again, trading up in the third round in order to draft Kansas State receiver/return specialist Tyler Lockett just six picks after taking DE Frank Clark late in the second round.
