EVENING UPDATE: NSU's Michael Bowie drafted by Seattle

Northeastern State left tackle Michael Bowie was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the seventh round of the NFL draft on Saturday. Bowie was the 36th pick in the final round, and he was the 242nd pick overall.

Bowie became the 10th player drafted in NSU history and the first since Derrick Moore in 1992.

Bowie, a former Sand Springs standout, joined NSU after transferring from Oklahoma State prior to his senior season. As a member of the RiverHawks, Bowie recorded a team-high 47 knockdowns and did not allow a sack on the quarterback.

Also drafted on Saturday was Oklahoma defensive tackle Stacy McGee. The former Muskogee standout was taken 205th overall by the Oakland Raiders.

Following the draft, former Sequoyah quarterback Nathan Stanley announced he was joined the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent.
