The Seattle Seahawks announced their eight-man practice squad Monday, including three 2013 draft choices -- offensive linemen Ryan Seymour and Jared Smith, and linebacker Ty Powell.
The Seahawks wanted to place wide receiver Chris Harper (the team’s fourth-round draft choice) on the practice squad, but he was signed by the San Francisco 49ers Monday. It’s likely Seattle also would have placed tight end Sean McGrath on the practice squad, but he was signed by Kansas City on Sunday.
Siliga (6-foot-2, 325 pounds) was acquired from Denver in the trade that sent guard John Moffitt to the Broncos two weeks ago. Coach Pete Carroll said he has liked what he’s seen in Siliga’s ability to hold his ground inside at the line of scrimmage.
Smith (6-4, 300) was a defensive tackle at New Hampshire and a seventh-round draft choice for Seattle, but the Seahawks moved him to center in training camp.
Seymour (6-4, 300) is a seventh-round choice from Vanderbilt. Powell (6-2, 250 from Harding) also was a seventh-round pick. He has worked at defensive end and linebacker.
