The Seahawks drafted two offensive line prospects with the team’s final two picks.

Seattle selected New Hampshire defensive tackle Jared Smith with the team’s No. 241 selection.

At 6-3 and 292 pounds, the Seahawks plan to convert Smith to defensive tackle, similar to what the team did with J.R. Sweezy last year.

The Seahawks selected Northeastern State offensive tackle Michael Bowie with the team’s final selection at 242.

A transfer from Oklahoma State, Bowie is 6-5 and 330 pounds. Bowie said he played left tackle in 2012, but also has the ability to play guard.

    weird draft

  3. hawkdawg says:

    Smith was a DT in college. Hawks will convert to G.

  4. Our final round 7 draft pick, Michael Bowie. A guy no one in the press knows. As if Mel Kiper knowing his name would have made him a good football player?

    Bowie is an interesting story…

    In 2011, Michael Bowie started at LT for Oklahoma State against some of the best defenses in the nation. Oklahoma State went 12-1, with Bowie starting 11 games. Bowie NEVER allowed Brandon Weedin to be sacked. Not once. How many LTs can say that?

    Bowie lasted until pick 242. He was never ranked by the media ‘scouts’. Why?

    It makes me wonder what gems Schneider and Carroll might have pulled out of this draft… guys that nobody is talking about… yet.
