This website has write-ups to all our draft picks, with some critical analysis: http://scouttheseahawks.com/category/2013-draft/
. I linked to the draft category page to allow for fewer clicks and page loading. I know what the internet's like there.
Over all, here's a recap of who we've chosen:
1st Round #25 - traded previously to the Vikings for WR Percy Harvin, probably a better player than any drafted in this year's first round.
2nd Round #62 - Christine Michael
, RB, Texas A&M, 0511 221 4.54, big, explosive running back some are calling the best RB in the draft. (we traded down six spots with the Ravens to pick up extra picks #165 and #199.)
3rd Round #82 - Jordan Hill
, DT, Penn State, 0601 303 5.17, best pure interior rusher left on the board. Great pass rush; lesser run defense skills.
4th Round #124 - Chris Harper
, WR, Kansas State, 0601 234 4.45, physical and muscular possession receiver with good hands and body control.
5th Round #137 - Jesse Williams
, DT, Alabama, 0604 323 4.94, powerful run-stopper. Called an absolute steal - projected as a 2nd before a now-healed knee injury. (Swapped picks 165 & 199 with Detroit's 137 to get him, a "huge win" for us.)
5th Round #138 - Tharold Simon
, CB, LSU, 0602 208 4.51, muscular press cornerback with powerful hands and an aggressive, physical nature. Dropped because he was flagged with "character issues" that appear not to be a big deal at all.
5th Round #158 - Luke Willson
, TE, Rice, 0605 251 4.46, big, fast, strong tight end whose pro day stats would have all been in the top ten of the position. Ankle injury last year caused him to drop in the draft.
6th Round #194 - Spencer Ware, RB, LSU, 0510 228 4.63, violent third-down/goal-line running back that loves contact. Drafted to be groomed as a FB that can also play tailback.
7th Round #220 - Ryan Seymour, OG, Vanderbilt, 0604 304 5.09, small school strong and nasty Breno-style lineman that has snaps at tackle, guard and center.
7th Round #231 - Ty Powell, DE, Harding, 0602 249 4.62, solid OLB/LEO type that has played DE, LB and safety. Small school guy that transferred three times. Drafted him to play LEO but our LEOs can play both sides (Sam and LEO).
7th Round #241 - Jared Smith, DT/OG, New Hampshire, 0603 302 5.08, good strength and hustle 3-4 DL. Appears to be another Sweezy-esque DT-to-G conversion project.
7th Round #242 - Michael Bowie, OT, NE Oklahoma State, 0605 330 5.28, lanky and mobile left tackle with big school experience. Transferred from OK State after rules violations, but looked solid at the position.Link to 6th and 7th rounders here
