Wake up call

It was quite the scene at Seahawks headquarters at the start of the third and final day of the NFL Draft.

Outside the draft room, ’80s music was blaring from Coach Pete Carroll’s office, where assistant coaches have gathered to watch the day’s festivities on three flat-screen TVs while dining on omelets and fresh fruit.

Inside the draft room, scouts and Seahawks executives are quietly back to work. Even before commissioner Roger Goodell strolled across the stage to kick off the day, phones were ringing and conversations were rolling.

“Let the games begin!” Carroll shouted slightly after 7 a.m., clapping in excitement. “Let’s get juiced up, fellas! We’ve got to get some players!”
