Pete Carroll on not drafting Tariq Woolen earlier: “We didn’t have to”

New York Giants v Seattle Seahawks

The Jets got defensive rookie of the year candidate Sauce Gardner with the fourth pick in the draft. The Seahawks snared defensive rookie of the year candidate Tariq Woolen nearly 150 picks later, in round five.

So why didn’t Seattle take Tariq Woolen sooner?

“We didn’t have to,” coach Pete Carroll told reporters on Friday. “That’s exactly the same thing [Richard Sherman] used to say. He was always pissed at us for taking him in the fifth round. Well, nobody else took you. Because of the work and assessment and the personnel guys, [G.M.] John [Schneider] had that figured out, and we were fortunately in a position that got him, and he’s been an awesome pick for us.”

It’s part of the broader game when it comes to the draft. A team may highly value a given player. But if no one else does, why take him sooner when he’ll be there later?

Of course, the risk is that he won’t be. For the Seahawks, Woolen was.

This weekend, Woolen will be tested by receiver Davante Adams. Fortunately for Woolen, he has already crossed paths with the likes of Mike Williams, Mike Evans, and DeAndre Hopkins.

“Going in, he knew all of those guys are big name guys, and he understood that, and tried to play his game the best he could, and not overreact to the personality of the other guy, and he’s done that,” Carroll said. “He’s going to try to do the same thing again. Davante is as good as anybody that we have played. He’s a fantastic player, and it’s a great challenge for both our guys, and for the guys that play outside. I think wherever [Woolen] is placed, he has handled it well. I think he is ready to do this again. We’ll see how it goes.”

The Seahawks, at 6-4, are in a battle with the 49ers for first place in the NFC West. San Francisco got the win in round one. The rematch is looming, on Thursday, December 15.

  1. What a stupid question to ask.

    So they should have not drafted Cross (he definitely wouldn’t have been available) so they could draft Woolen early.

  2. It’s not a “stupid question to ask.”

    Believe it or not, there are a lot of GMs who say they just pick the best player left on the board and not risk losing him. All it takes is one GM to share the same opinion of Woolen and draft him before Seattle does.

    Unless Seattle has spies on 31 teams and know exactly their draft boards…

  3. That’s a disingenuous response.
    If you know a player is very good you would draft them.
    If you know the next Tom Brady will last the 6th round are you really going to wait to draft him?
    I’m going to take him in the first.

  4. Woolen was a consensus projected 2 or 3. So asking why they didn’t take him there is fair game.

    The Seahawks scouting and intel team took a gamble by waiting and it paid off. It doesn’t always work, but this time it did. But leave it to Pete to say “we knew he’d be there in the fifth all along.” Dude never misses an opportunity to be smug while virtue signaling.

  5. Priority matters too. Seahawks needed help in the secondary but the was not the highest priority in this draft. Considering Seattle took 2 OTs before any CB, OT was clearly the higher priority.

  6. Seattle could’ve made DK Metcalf a 1st round pick in 2019, they chose not to. Opted for LJ Collier at 29 (eye roll) & Marquise Blair at 47. They chose DK at 64 (last pick of 2nd round)

  7. Any time a coach/GM say “oh we knew he’d still be there”, they are lying. How would they know about other teams draft boards? Carroll is a liar too.

  8. If you don’t follow Seattle you might not know John Schneiders way of doing the draft. He would constantly trade away early draft capital and get more later picks.

    They have found some gems stars and starters with guys like Tyler Lockett, Sherman, Kam this way. I feel like there were 3 or 4 years where they lost their touch. This year looks to be one of their best drafts.

  9. HOF coach Bill Walsh drafted Joe Montana in the 3rd round because he knew most teams had him listed as a 5th or 6th rounder. He disguised his interest in Montana by pretending to be testing out a WR with Montana only there to throw to him at a combine. Even Montana wasn’t told until much later though he had some suspicion because he had to throw the full repertoire of passes, even soft ones which any WR can catch easily. That’s how Walsh turned a 2-12 team into a SB champ in his third year as HC.

  10. How funny reading comments from fans of teams who passed on Woolen, trying to make it seem that Pete made a huge mistake by actually drafting him.

    LOL

    This way Pete got two starting tackles, a starting running back, a starting defensive end and two starting CBs.

    And your team didn’t.

    LOL

  11. People sure like to flex and talk a bunch of trash about a nothing burger 7th seed team. They did not do anything special to get to the nowhere where they currently reside. This season is about being 1 game better than their ex-QB. That’s pathetic.

    While it certainly does look like a good draft, they are also starting because the Seahawks roster was bereft of decent talent. They may be depth pieces on a more talented team. Still credit to Schneider for not blowing the draft after having really bad ones for several years.

    You seem to forget that all of the “Experts” predicted that the Seahawks would finish Dead Last in the league, or close to it.

    Also, this season has never been about being “One game better than their ex QB.” This season has always been about retooling under a New QB, and a New Defensive scheme. They evened the score with their Former QB the First Game of the Season, and if you haven’t noticed the Broncos are a little further than 1 game behind the Seahawks…..smh….

  17. The best revenge is being mediocre instead of pathetic? So they get the 7th seed, lose by 17 in the playoffs and pick 6th and 21st instead of 4th and 6th. This season is not a triumph on any level. What’s next? Pay Geno 35 million a year? They are going nowhere.

  18. I’ve heard most had him as a late day 3 pick or even undrafted, they probably wanted both and figured Cobe was far more likely to go earlier.

    Mediocre?……The Seahawks are already ahead of schedule in their retooling, with one of the youngest teams in the league, and still have multiple picks in the 1st and 2nd round, (thanks to the Broncos) to continue to build..

    Also, along with the improved level of play the Rookies are showing is the fact that for the first few seasons, their Costs are very low. This will allow the Seahawks to pay Geno as much or as little as they deem fit…..

    I tend to trust Pete more than you, no offense…..

  26. I died at “one of the best drafts of all time” halfway through the season it preceded.

    It’s a pretty good draft but they still have to prove themselves over the long haul. The team performance has surprised me – primarily because Geno has done well but also I think Carroll is not that good.

    How funny reading comments from fans of teams who passed on Woolen, trying to make it seem that Pete made a huge mistake by actually drafting him.

    LOL

    This way Pete got two starting tackles, a starting running back, a starting defensive end and two starting CBs.

    And your team didn’t.

    LOL
    ————-
    While it certainly does look like a good draft, they are also starting because the Seahawks roster was bereft of decent talent. They may be depth pieces on a more talented team. Still credit to Schneider for not blowing the draft after having really bad ones for several years.
    ———————————-
    LOL…”not blowing the draft”……That Draft is Rapidly being compared to, and recognized as exceeding the “Best Drafts” of All Time in the NFL….nice try….

    —————
    Whatever makes you feel happy about your sad sack franchise! Lol!!

    The year is not even up yet and you’re calling it one of the best drafts “of all time”!! Talk about desperate for trash talk.
    ———————————-
    First off, 6-4 tied with the division leader, so I don’t need to “trash talk. I just am stating facts. Maybe you should do some research next time?….
    ————-
    Maybe you need to look at the standings- your team, the one hit wonder franchise, is second right now and last for playoffs. Lol
    ——————————-
    So what you are saying is that the Seahawks, the team that the “Experts” predicted to be one of the worst teams in the league is 6-4 and currently qualified for the Playoffs? That, along with the Denver draft picks piled up for the next draft makes the Seahawks’ future look quite nice……not so much for the Broncos though huh?……lol….
    ————
    What I’m saying is that they didn’t blow it this time, having blown several draft classes in the recent years. Isn’t that a good thing? Or you just triggered? This is what I said at the beginning.
    It’s a pretty good draft but they still have to prove themselves over the long haul. The team performance has surprised me – primarily because Geno has done well but also I think Carroll is not that good.
    —————————————————
    Well, all you have to do is look at Pete’s win/loss record to see that you ae wrong about him….smh….
    ——————-
    Maybe my standards of excellence are higher and I think Carroll blew it big time with that Super Bowl loss. I was watching that game and really thought that this was a dynasty in the making. Instead Pete took it down the drain.
    ——————————————————–
    So Wilson throwing an interception makes Pete a bad coach?……come on man, get a grip…..smh….

    Lol – good one. Are you grasping for straws?I have seen niners win 3 super bowls. I hope you were alive when hawks won their only lonely.

    To: badthing03

    Pete ok’d the dumbest call in Super Bowl history of having Wilson throw the ball when beast mode was right there to punch it in. Sorry, this is squarely on Pete. Dense bunched formation from less than 5 yards out. What could go wrong??

    If I were a Seahawks fan I’d blame Pete – yes Wilson threw it but Lockette was bumped from his route. Could happen to anyone.

    Btw: I rooted for Seahawks against the Steelers and think they got jobbed by the refs. Hawks were a lot more likable under holmgren.

    Sure you did.

    It’s been 27 years since their last win.

    The internet had barely started and was just chat rooms.
    Clinton was President.
    Windows 95 was the new operating system.
    Patrick Mahomes was born.
    Seinfeld was the most popular show.
    Amazon sold its first book.
    Ebay just started.
    Colorado was the #4 college football team.
    MC Hammer pants were popular.

    Just sit down.

  36. The Niners have ONE win against a team with a winning record.

    They have 3 losses vs teams with sub .500 records.

    LOL
