The Seahawks are the latest team to sign every member of their 2013 draft class.
The NFL’s daily personnel notice on Thursday served as the announcement that the Seahawks signed the final two members of their draft class. Fifth-round cornerback Tharold Simon and seventh-round tackle Michael Bowie were the most recent players to sign their names to contracts.
Simon, the 138th overall pick, was arrested on the first day of the draft, but has several witnesses backing up his contention that he did nothing wrong during an incident with police in his hometown of Eunice, Louisiana. The Seahawks were satisfied with his explanation of events and selected him to be part of a cornerback depth chart topped by Brandon Browner, Richard Sherman and Antoine Winfield. The presence of that trio likely means Simon’s first shot at playing time will come on special teams.
Bowie started his career at Oklahoma State, but transferred to Northeastern Oklahoma State after being dismissed from the Cowboys for violating team rules. The Seahawks took two other offensive linemen in the seventh round and the three rookies will all be developmental prospects in Seattle in their rookie seasons.
