Seahawks trying to pull another Sweezy

With their last two picks, the Seahawks took Jared Smith, a defensive tackle from New Hampshire, and Michael Bowie, a tackle from Northeastern (Oklahoma) State.

With Smith, the Seahawks are hoping to replicate the success they had moving J.R. Sweezy to the offensive line last year. Like Sweezy, Smith got a visit from Seattle O-line coach Tom Cable, who worked him out and asked him if he’d be willing to try playing guard.

Smith said he was nervous about the idea of moving, but that he trusts Cable, in large part because of the success Sweezy had last year. In fact, Smith said he and Sweezy worked out together in the offseason and have become good friends.

We should be hearing from Pete Carroll and John Schneider soon, so I’ll post some quotes in a bit.
