#SeahawksDraftClues: Pete Carroll Hints At Seahawks 2019 First-Round Pick

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has taken to Twitter to provide 12s with hints on who Seattle will select in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

With another Seahawks draft just hours away, 12s on Twitter were treated to another set of #SeahawksDraftClues from Pete Carroll.

As the Seattle head coach readies for his 10th Seahawks draft alongside general manager John Schneider, he's entertaining his followers with a series of hints as to who the club will select in the first round. It's an exercise Carroll started back in 2010 during his initial draft with the Seahawks, when he tweeted out song titles from artists like Lil Wayne, 2-Pac, The Doors, James Brown, AC/DC, Pearl Jam, and Taylor Swift. Carroll's clues have evolved through the years to include GIFs, movie quotes and clips, as well as comedy sketches, but in honor of his 10th draft with Seattle, Carroll's going back to his musical roots.

"Well, it's that time of year again where we've got a chance to give you some clues about our first-round draft pick coming up," Carroll said in a video posted to Twitter that featured him sitting behind a keyboard on which he played the opening to Bill Withers' 1972 song Lean on Me. "Happens to be the 10th year anniversary, so we thought we'd go back to the music, and in particular that it's the 60th year anniversary of Motown for Berry Gordy and all that big show that was just on, we're going to stick with Motown tunes, and we think we've got a way to do it."

According to Carroll, no one correctly guessed the Seahawks' first-round pick last year, when Seattle chose San Diego State running back Rashaad Penny with the No. 27 overall selection.

"Now, last year, nobody figured out that it was Rashaad Penny. We did GIFs and that quite challenged our following that couldn't quite figure it out. I could've put Penny Lane, the Beatles on there, too. We didn't do that, we made it a little bit harder than that so you were challenged, and we're going to challenge you again this year. Let's see who can figure it out, so good luck."

Below, take a look at what coach Carroll has tweeted out so far, and take your best guess at what the Seahawks will do in round one of the 2019 NFL Draft, which begins at 5 p.m. PT (here's all the ways you can watch, listen and follow).
