Carroll, who scouted Tebow heavily as the head coach at USC, has a private visit with the Florida quarterback upcoming. Carroll heaped praise upon Tebow on Wednesday at the NFL Annual Meeting.
“I can’t believe a quarterback of his stature won’t be (taken in the first round),” Carroll said.
Carroll said Tebow’s qualities as a leader, a winner, a competitor and a human being make him too good to pass up. The Seahawks hold the No. 6 and No. 14 overall picks – too high for Tebow – and don’t feel compelled to take a quarterback after trading for Charlie Whitehurst, according to a team source. However, if the right quarterback fell to the Seahawks at a certain pick, it’s hardly out of the realm of possibility that they would select one.
There was a growing sense at the annual meeting that Tebow would continue to impress teams with his workouts and visits, and several executives said they anticipated him going no later than the second round.
