Richardson, a wide receiver out of Colorado, was Seattle’s top selection in the draft at No. 45. Last year, Richardson caught 83 passes for 1,343 yards and ten touchdowns in 12 games for the Buffaloes. The Seahawks traded down from No. 32 to No. 40 to No. 45 and still managed to land their top target in Richardson.
Seattle has now signed five of its nine draft picks. Second-round right tackle Justin Britt, fourth-round wide receiver Kevin Norwood, fourth-round linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis, and sixth-round tackle Garrett Scott remain unsigned.
