Utah State wide receiver Matt Austin (No. 4, middle) is one of nine undrafted rookie free agents that has agreed to terms with the Seahawks

As soon as the 2013 NFL Draft came to a close, the undrafted rookie free agent frenzy began.

Less than four hours after the conclusion of this afternoon’s seventh round, the Seahawks announced they had agreed to terms with nine undrafted rookie free agents.

“We were very fortunate in getting a couple guys to come on board here after the seventh round was done,” head coach Pete Carroll said after the draft’s completion. “It’s going to be a really good group again.”

On the undrafted group, general manager John Schneider added, “This was the hardest rookie free agent period we’ve had. Pete was recruiting like crazy just now. We were negotiating with a bunch of guys and once you know that guys are making very hard decisions to come with you, that’s when you know when you’re improving.”
