Being drafted is perhaps the most common path to getting into the NFL, but it is hardly the only. With a limited number of draft spots, hundreds of young men may not realize their dream of being drafted, but still have an outstanding opportunity to make a name for themselves in the league.
In fact, nearly 23% of the league is undrafted, and several notable players were as well: such as Tony Romo, Wes Welker, and Antonio Gates.
With this in mind, here is the list of the 25 undrafted free agents the Seattle Seahawks have signed in the wake of the 2023 NFL draft:

It should be noted the Seahawks themselves have certainly benefitted from the services of their own undrafted free agents, as several iconic players in their franchise history have entered the league this way:

It will be fascinating to see who of this batch of undrafted players will make the final roster, and if any of them can make a considerable impact for the Seahawks themselves.
