Schmitt had a very good set of practices during Senior Bowl week and showed some versatility in pass catching drills.
Schmitt joins a crowed group of fullbacks including starter Leonard Weaver and 2006 fifth-round pick David Kirtman. He is the fourth Seattle 2008 draft pick to sign with the team, following kicker Brandon Coutu, running back Justin Forsett, and long-snapper Tyler Schmitt.
