In their recap of the just-completed NFL Draft, Seahawks general manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll also touched on a couple of hot-topic subjects.
Schneider, when asked if the fact that they drafted only one defensive lineman (Pep Levingston in the seventh round) put more urgency on re-signing Brandon Mebane: “We’d like to have Brandon back anyway. It probably does, to a certain extent. I’d be lying if I told you any different. But again, we’re not a team that’s going to panic. We’re going to plow through it and see what we can accomplish.”
Schneider, when asked if the Seahawks were in a tough position because they did not draft a quarterback and Charlie Whitehurst is the only one on the roster: “No. We had a plan going in, and we still have our plan. We just can’t execute that plan right now.”
