As Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider continue to work into the dark of night at the Seahawks headquarters in Renton, the head coach’s bliss continues to beam in reaction to today’s picks of offensive tackle Russell Okung and safety Earl Thomas.
“That was just a magnificent day for this club,” Carroll said tonight. “We absolutely love what our two picks bring to this team. John Schneider and his guys came through in a big way and they operated like an extremely experienced group.
“Now we’re really excited to see what we can do during these last two days.”
