RENTON, Wa. - The Seattle Seahawks signed their top draft pick offensive lineman Russell Okung on Friday.

The Seattle Times reports the contract to be for six years and a maximum of $58 million with $30 million of that guaranteed for the sixth overall selection in April's draft

Okung and Buffalo's C.J. Spiller were the last two first-round picks not signed entering Friday. Spiller also signed Friday.

The Seahawks selected the Oklahoma State product as a replacement for stalwart lineman Walter Jones, who sat out the entire 2009 season due to injury. Okung is also the first pick for new head coach Pete Carroll, who was lured away from his success with the USC Trojans over the past decade to make a return to the NFL coaching ranks.

Okung is coming off a season in which he was named the Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year. He is very durable, finishing his career with 47 consecutive starts on Oklahoma State's offensive line.
