Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll appeared on The Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday. Carroll talked about the team’s rookie draft class, possible sanctions at USC and former player Taylor Mays, among other subjects.

Carroll said that Notre Dame wide receiver Golden Tate probably made the most plays out of all the rookies during the team’s post-draft minicamp two weeks ago.

He talked about passing on his former player Taylor Mays, and the differences between quarterback Tim Tebow and Jimmy Clausen.

Carroll also said he was, “just disappointed as could be,” in finding out about his former player Brian Cushing being suspended for four games for violating the NFL’s drug policy.

Carroll told Patrick he did not expect USC to receive a harsh penalty for its role in the Reggie Bush situation. “I’d be surprised if there are,” he said.

    Eric, I’m curious if Walter Thurmond is in attendance for this OTA since he graduated last semester? And what drills is he able to participate in, if any, at this point? Thanks.

    Sando touched on that very issue yesterday:

    Even though Thurmond’s class doesn’t graduate until June he can report May 16, as he personally has graduated.

  3. Dukeshire says:

    Oh, well, there ya go. Thanks Chuck. Question 1 down.

  4. Carroll had to know that Cushing was juicing. He just can’t say anything about it.

  5. IBGoofy says:

    Has anyone seen/heard the status of Walter Thurmond? Is he fully recovered/expected to be fully recovered ?

    I assume that’s what you’re asking also, yes Duke?

  6. IBGoofy says:

    One thing that sure sticks out in the Dan Patrick audio, Pete Carroll sure can talk with the media… He’s darn good! That’s such a great change from last year…. even when he can’t answer the question, he says so….

  7. Lord knows we need more playmakers too!
