Powell, an undrafted rookie, was active eight games for the Seahawks this season and made 3 tackles. He was named Defensive MVP of the College Football Playoff National Championship game as a sophomore after racking up 9 tackles in the Buckeyes’ 42-20 victory against Oregon to end the 2014 season.
Powell entered the NFL draft after starting all 13 games his junior season.
The Seahawks will play the Detroit Lions Saturday night in the wild-card round of the NFL playoffs.
