First-quarter review of Seattle’s 2013 Draft Picks

michaelruz

With the first quarter of the season completed, I thought it’d be a good time to review Seattle’s 2013 draft class.

First, a review of each player and his current status:

RB Christine Michael (second round): Listed as the No. 3 tailback, Michael (above in a Dean Rutz photo) has played only against Jacksonville, with nine carries for 37 yards. Simply hard to find time at the moment with Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin ahead of him.

DT Jordan Hill (third round): Hill has been out the last five weeks with a biceps injury, but the hope is he will return soon. And when he does, expected him to go right into the rotation up front.

WR Chris Harper (fourth round): Waived in the cutdown to 53, he was then signed by the 49ers. He has yet to play for San Francisco.

DT Jesse Williams (fifth round): Williams was bothered by an existing knee injury throughout camp and was placed on the injured reserve list on Aug. 26 and will  sit out the season rehabbing.

CB Tharold Simon (fifth round): Simon has been bothered by a foot injury since being drafted by Seattle and has yet to practice. He was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list on Aug. 27, and while he would be eligible to come off that list after the sixth game (same as Percy Harvin) the expectation is that he will sit out the season rehabbing.

TE Luke Willson (fifth round): Willson has emerged as Seattle’s backup tight end and has five catches for 76 yards, having played in all four games.

FB Spencer Ware (sixth round): Ware spent the first two games as a backup fullback before being injured against the 49ers and sitting out the last two (he has a high ankle sprain). He has three carries for 10 yards.

G Ryan Seymour (seventh round): Seymour is currently on Seattle’s practice squad and as such has not seen time in any games.

LB Ty Powell (seventh round): Powell began the year on the practice squad, then was released off of it on Sept, 12 and is now on the practice squad of the New York Giants.

G Jared Smith (seventh round): Smith is currently on Seattle’s practice squad and has not played in any games.

OT Michael Bowie (seventh round): Bowie has been one of the surprises of this draft, instantly emerging as one of the team’s better, young offensive linemen. He got his first start Sunday at right tackle in place of the injured Breno Giacomini, a spot he is likely to hold for a few more weeks with Giacomini recovering.
