Busy day nets Seattle 7 players, 4 on defense.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — John Schneider, Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks looked for athleticism in the seven picks made on the final day of the NFL draft.

Seattle had a trio of fourth-round selections, using those on UCLA defensive end Cassius Marsh, Alabama wide receiver Kevin Norwood and Boston College linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis.

Seattle took Middle Tennessee defensive tackle Jimmy Staten in the fifth round, selected Marshall offensive tackle Garrett Scott and San Diego State defensive back Eric Pinkins in the sixth round and finished out the draft picking Arkansas fullback Kiero Small in the seventh round.

Seattle began the draft with six picks, but three trades netted the Seahawks additional picks. Along with getting picked in the draft, Staten and Scott were celebrating their college graduations on Saturday.
