Follow along here as the Seahawks make four picks in the seventh round:
Vanderbilt guard Ryan Seymour
The Seahawks drafted Vanderbilt guard Ryan Seymour in the seventh round of the NFL Draft. Seymour played, left guard, right tackle and left tackle at Vanderbilt while also serving as the team’s backup center.
“I can play all the way from right tackle all the way to left guard,” Seymour said. “I’m ready to play anywhere along the line.”
The Seahawks have to like his versatility, as it allows them to have a player who can fill in at a number of different positions. The consensus before the draft was that the Seahawks could use depth at guard and at right tackle.
Seymour was the first offensive lineman taken by the Seahawks in the draft. He said he Vanderbilt ran a zone blocking scheme, which is what the Seahawks run, about 50 percent of the time.
Harding (Division II) linebacker Ty Powell
The Seahawks drafted Ty Powell, an outside linebacker who also played safety and defensive end in college. He is the first player drafted from Harding, which is in Arkansas, in 30 years. Powell is 6 feet 2, 249 pounds and had 40 tackles and 8.5 sacks during his final season at Harding.
Northeastern State offensive tackle Michael Bowie
The Seahawks drafted Michael Bowie in the seventh round on Friday. Bowie originally committed to Oklahoma State out of high school but instead spent two years at Navarro College. Bowie then ended up at Oklahoma State and started five games. He was projected to be the Cowboys’ starting offensive tackle but was dismissed from the team for violating team rules. That’s how he ended up at Northeastern State in Oklahoma for his final season.
He is 6 feet 4, 325 pounds. The Seahawks could use more depth at offensive tackle.
New Hampshire offensive guard Jared Smith
Jared Smith played defensive tackle in college, but when his name was announced in the seventh round, he was listed as an offensive guard. He is the second offensive guard drafted by the Seahawks. Both came in the seventh round. Smith was invited to the NFL combine and had 40 tackles and four sacks during his final season.
