Why haven't the Seattle Seahawks attempted to trade for another quarterback? Is it because an insane elderly man is the head coach? Possibly.
Carroll says of Lock, who was the 42nd overall pick back in 2019, that he would have been the first quarterback picked in this year's draft.
From Pro Football Talk:
“I think he’d have been the first guy picked, of quarterbacks anyway. He’d have been the first guy in this draft. I don’t have any hesitation saying that,” Carroll said.
Carroll said he’s been extremely impressed with the work Lock has done since arriving in Seattle as part of the Russell Wilson trade.
“The first look at Drew, he’s really athletic, he’s really a confident athlete, you can see he’s got a lot of body control, he’s got quick feet, he’s got a quick arm, he’s got various ways he can release the football as his body’s in different positions,” Carroll said. “He’s got a real knack there. He’s got a strong arm, he can throw the ball a mile down the field. He compares to Geno, and Geno Smith has a great arm. He has a world-class arm, and all that. To match up with that, that’s saying a lot.”
It's a pretty crazy thing to say. If Lock would have been the first quarterback taken, and he's already no longer with the team that drafted him, is Carroll saying the quarterbacks in this draft are garbage? That or he's just a lunatic.
