RENTON – On the third day of the 2013 NFL Draft, the Seahawks went global. Of the nine players they selected on Saturday, one is from Australia (Alabama defensive tackle Jesse Williams) and another from Canada (Rice tight end Luke Wilson). They also grabbed a player from New Hampshire (defensive end Jared Smith, who will be moved to offensive guard) and another from Harding University (Leo end/linebacker Ty Powerll). There are two from LSU (cornerback Tharold Simon and fullback Spencer Ware). Two others came from Vanderbilt (guard Ryan Seymour) and Northeastern State in Oklahoma (tackle Michael Bowie). The other (wide receiver Chris Harper) began his college career as a quarterback at Oregon only to end it as a wide receiver at Kansas State.
