Seahawks select LSU running back Spencer Ware in sixth round

The Seahawks had one pick in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft today and used it to select LSU running back Spencer Ware.

The 5-foot-10, 229-pound Ware was the 26th pick in the round, and No. 194 overall. The Seahawks also selected LSU cornerback Tharold Simon in the fifth round.

Ware had 367 yards rushing and 230 receiving last season, when he started four games.

The Seahawks have four picks in the seventh, and final, round.

Ware joins the players previously selected in the sixth round by the Seahawks, a group that includes defensive end Michael Sinclair (1991), kick returner and Olympic sprinter Michael Bates (1992), tight end Itula Mili (1997), defensive tackle Craig Terrill (2004), tight end Anthony McCoy (2010) and cornerbacks Byron Maxwell (2011) and Jeremy Lane (2012).
