Seahawks sign first-round pick Byron Murphy II

Byron Murphy II

The Seattle Seahawks announced coming to terms with their first-round draft pick, defensive tackle Byron Murphy II, following his first minicamp practice Friday.

“I feel like there’s some things I need to work on, but I feel like I’m learning, still getting in the groove of things,” Murphy said. “Growing up, Seattle has been my favorite team, so just to be a part of this team and this organization, it really means a lot. I’m going to give everything I’ve got each and every day, 110 percent.”

Seattle chose Murphy, a native of Texas, No. 16 overall with their first selection in the 2024 NFL Draft.

The Seattle Times reported the contract as being a four-year, fully-guaranteed, $16.083 million deal with an $8.516 million signing bonus.

Murphy, 21, was a second-team Associated Press All-American playing along the defensive front for the Texas Longhorns in 2023 after two years of mostly backup duty.

He was tabbed the Big 12 Conference defensive lineman of the year after recording 8.5 tackles for loss, including five sacks, in helping Texas win the Big 12 and earn a College Football Playoff bid.
