SEATTLE (AP) - The Seahawks have signed first-round pick Bruce Irvin, a defensive end taken 15th overall in last month's draft to help fill Seattle's need to add a speed pass rusher coming off the edge.

The terms of the multi-year deal were not released Monday.

Selecting Irvin so high was considered a reach by some. He had been considered a likely second-day pick. But he became the centerpiece of a draft focused on defense, with most of Seattle's selections landing on that side of the ball.

The 6-foot-3, 245-pound Irvin played two seasons at West Virginia, where he had 14 sacks as a junior, and 8½ sacks in his final season.
