And with the 185th pick overall in the NFL draft, Pete Carroll finally dipped into the talent pool at USC to select tight end Anthony McCoy in the sixth round.
Carroll, who coached the Trojans the past nine seasons, had passed on other USC players in the first five rounds.
McCoy was rated a second- or third-round prospect, but had academic and off-field issues. On the field, the 6-foot-4, 259-pound McCoy is a solid blocker and good intermediate-range receiver. He caught 22 passes for 457 yards in 10 games last season.
He joins a group that already includes incumbent starter John Carlson, free-agent addition Chris Baker and Cameron Morrah, a seventh-round draft choice last year.
