Seattle takes RB Michael with 62nd pick

RENTON, Wash. (AP) - The Seattle Seahawks have selected Texas A&M running back Christine Michael with the 62nd overall selection, and final pick in the second round of the NFL draft.

The selection was another surprise move by the Seahawks, who were thought to be focused on improving the line of scrimmage and linebacker early in the draft. Instead, they picked up a bruising back to join Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin.

The Seahawks held the 56th overall selection but traded with Baltimore to drop back six spots and also picked up additional fifth- and sixth-round selections. The 62nd overall pick was the latest selection in Seattle's draft history.

Michael saw limited action his senior season with the Aggies, but still rushed for 12 touchdowns. In 2011, Michael rushed for 899 yards in nine games before suffering a torn ACL.
