Seattle Seahawks Pete Carroll On Sam Bradford's Pro Day: 'He Lit It Up.'

New Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll came away impressed after watching Sam Bradford’s workout, one Gil Brandt called the best he’d seen since Troy Aikman’s 21 years ago.

Seattle Seahawks, which recently traded for QB Charlie Whitehurst, owns two picks in the first round, Nos. 6 and 14.

“Just leaving OU,” Carroll wrote on his Twitter account. “Sam Bradford had a great workout at his pro day … He lit it up!”

Now, Seattle isn’t likely to get a chance to pick Bradford without moving up. He’s considered the top quarterback available with Notre Dame’s Jimmy Clausen regarded as No. 2. Bradford will be a consideration for the top overall selection, held by St. Louis.

There’s also a league-wide belief that Mike Shanahan wants a quarterback with his first pick with Washington, which holds the No. 4 overall selection.

If both Bradford and Clausen are still available when the Seahawks are on the clock at No. 6, it would mark the first time since 2000 that a quarterback was not chosen in the top five. In other words, don’t get too giddy thinking Bradford might fall.
