Pete Carroll is at it again, sending out clues to the Seahawks draft plans. For 2018, Pete’s feeling a little giffy. And we love it.
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll loves to tantalize the 12s with clues during the draft. The clues at times may seem totally random, but they do make sense after the fact. Assuming Seattle actually got the guy the clue was about, anyway. So let’s see what we can figure out from these, shall we? First up, we have Will Farrell.
Hmmmm… how many Wills are in this draft, that happen to fill the Seahawks top need, offensive lineman? There’s just one Will in the top 100 of most boards. It’s so obviously Will Hernandez, I have to think the Seahawks are going with little-known Saquon Farrell, long snapper from Slippery Rock. Yeah, it’s Will Fernandez, the bulldozer from UTEP.
Next up, Pete gives us this bit of larceny. Personally, I don’t think it’s really a clue. I think Pete just likes monkeys.
Okay, there are a couple of possibilities here. Defensive back Simeon Thomas is one. Gregg Bell of the News Tribune likes him in the seventh round. If they pick this guy before the seventh, there should be riots. As Bell wrote, he’s hardly on any draft boards, so there’s no reason to take him until very, very late. The other possibility? Bob Condotta’s reply to the tweet: “The wheels are coming off?” Probably not.
Where you going? Pete’s just warming up!
Then Pete ran out this masterpiece, and basically stumped the internet.
The only thing I’ve got is Bruno Mars will perform at the Seahawks home opener. Seriously, Pete, you are a Jedi Master at this. Maybe as simple as getting down, which the Seahawks always do on draft day. Okay, on to the next masterwork.
Don't forget we are going LIVE tomorrow for the ENTIRE 2018 NFL Draft!

Who knew Matthew McConaughey could play football? Okay, he didn’t. But his dad, Jim McConaughey did play in college for Kentucky, then Houston. He was even drafted by the Green Bay Packers, although he never played in the NFL. So….in the draft day blockbuster to kill all blockbusters, the Seahawks trade Russell Wilson to the Packers for Aaron Rodgers. Yeah, I’m really holding my breath for that one. One astute 12 sees this as a reference to Arrested Development. If so, it’s brilliant, and I salute @KuhlHawkFan along with Pete. I’ll leave it up to you to figure it out.
Come on, now. I’m not even going to bother with this one. If the previous clue is on target, that makes two references to this player. So, they’ll draft him twice? I’m good with that, he’ll be worth it.
But Coach, we already have Mike Tyson. On to the next clue!
I take this as the sign of all signs that the Seahawks will trade down and wait for the guys they wanted all along. Thanks for all your great work, Pete! Oh, and your coaching is pretty good, too.
