Vandy Guard Ryan Seymour Drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the Seventh Round

You can't see him, but Ryan Seymour helped this run happen. - Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

Vanderbilt offensive lineman Ryan Seymour became the second Commodore drafted in 2013 on Saturday afternoon. Seymour will head to Seattle after the Seahawks tabbed him to help block for Russell Wilson this fall.

Ryan Seymour, a three-year starter and one of the few consistent presences on Vanderbilt's oft-criticized offensive line, was drafted on Saturday by the Seattle Seahawks. He was the 14th pick of the seventh round and 220th overall.

Seymour was a key piece of Herb Hand's rebuilding project in Vandys' trenches. Seymour and teammate Wesley Johnson were the two building blocks of an offensive line that progressed in 2011 and 2012 to help keep Jordan Rodgers upright and led the team to a pair of bowl appearances. Seymour will likely be an interior lineman at the next level.

Seymour's size may have dropped his draft stock, and at under 300 pounds he'll be outmuscled by some of the league's bigger linemen. However, he's got quick feet and an aggressive streak at the line. He helped Zac Stacy break Vanderbilt's single-season and all-time rushing records, and that experience should serve him well at the next level. He'll help fill out the 'Hawks depth chart in 2013, and he could develop into a starter if he can prove that his relative lack of size won't be a problem in the NFL.

Seymour is the second Commodore taken in the 2013 NFL Draft, following running back Zac Stacy.
