It's late April and one of the best annual traditions in football has returned with a fervor. Far removed from all the pomp and circumstance of the NFL Draft in Kansas City, Missouri, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll is quietly putting in the final hours of preparation at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center—and playfully taking to Twitter to tease what he calls "Draft Clues".
Carroll posted the sixth and final clue, featuring the Seattle Kraken mascot Buoy, just before the first round commenced at 5:00 p.m. Is it any coincidence that Buoy is, well, a troll? Many 12s have tried for years to connect clues to prospects, both before picks are made and retroactively, and it continues to be quite the challenge.
From a trailer for Netflix's Love Is Blind to Las Vegas Aces star Kelsey Plum bombing a T-shirt into the crowd, can you make any sense of the clues? We, quite frankly, are stumped.
