The Seahawks have signed their top draft pick receiver Paul Richardson today.  The Hawks selected him 45th overall in the second round this month.  Richardson played college ball at Colorado.

The speedy receiver let the "cat out of the bag" on Twitter before the Hawks confirmed it on their website.

Richardson likely signed a four year rookie contract, potentially worth around $4.7 million dollars.

He caught 83 passes for 1,343 yards in his last season for the Buffaloes.

The Hawks have now signed 5 of their 9 draft picks.
