With NFL teams locked into a rookie wage scale, teams are hammering out deals with draft picks much faster than they were before the 2011 CBA.
The Seahawks are no different, announcing they've reached deals with three draft picks -- defensive tackle Jimmy Staten, safety Erick Pinkins and fullback Kiero Small.
Staten was taken in the fifth round, Pinkins in the sixth and Small in the seventh.
