The Seattle Seahawks have placed three of their 2013 draft picks on their eight-man practice squad.
Seattle announced the practice squad on Monday. All eight players were in Seattle's training camp.
The Seahawks brought back offensive linemen Ryan Seymour and Jared Smith, and linebacker Ty Powell, all three taken in April's draft and released last week. Smith is making the transition from defensive line to center.
Seattle also added defensive tackle Michael Brooks, tight end Cooper Helfet, defensive back DeShawn Shead, defensive tackle Sealver Siliga and wide receiver Bryan Walters. Siliga was acquired from Denver in a trade during training camp.
