Seahawks take LSU RB Spencer Ware in sixth roundApril 27, 2013 @ 2:15 pm
RENTON, Wash. (AP) - The Seattle Seahawks took their second running back of the draft by selecting Spencer Ware from LSU in the sixth round Saturday.
The Seahawks spent their second-round selection on Texas A&M running back Christine Michael and now have added another back in much the same mold. Like Michael, Ware is 5-foot-10 and close to 230 pounds. Ware is also Seattle's second draft pick from LSU.
Ware elected to declare for the draft after his junior season. He started four games for the Tigers in 2012 and ran for 367 yards on 94 carries. He also caught 18 passes for 230 yards with one rushing and one receiving touchdown apiece.
Ware also played some fullback with LSU as a freshman and could be asked to block in Seattle.
