BREAKING NEWS: Raiders select ex-Rougher McGee in sixth round; RiverHawk goes to Seattle in seventh

Phoenix Staff Reports

— The Oakland Raiders drafted ex-Muskogee Rougher and Oklahoma defensive tackle Stacy McGee with their last of four sixth-round picks.

Oakland took McGee 205th overall with a compensatory pick. The Raiders previously selected tight ends Nick Kasa and Mychal Rivera and running back Latavius Murray in the sixth round.

The Raiders lost their top three defensive tackles in free agency this offseason with the departures of Richard Seymour, Tommy Kelly and Desmond Bryant. Oakland signed Pat Sims and Vance Walker as free agents.

Michael Bowie became the 10th player in Northeastern State history to be selected in the NFL Draft when the Seattle Seahawks called his name with the 36th pick of the seventh round Saturday evening.


Bowie, a left tackle from Tulsa, played his final collegiate season as a member of the RiverHawks after transferring from Oklahoma State University. He led NSU with a team-high 47 knockdowns and did not concede a quarterback sack.


He was named a 2012 All-America Honorable Mention, and he was also selected to the All-MIAA Second Team.


Bowie is the first player from Northeastern State to be selected in the NFL Draft since Derrick Moore was taken by the Atlanta Falcons in the eighth round in 1992. Bowie was also the 242nd overall selection.
