Part of the reason why the Seattle Seahawks have been able to put together such a formidable roster is that they have had recent success in the draft. Taking advantage of the current CBA, which slots rookie contracts at affordable prices, the Seahawks have several of their top players on the cheap. That's allowed them to spend that money elsewhere to bolster their roster. That will change soon, though.
