Seattle Seahawks Pete Carroll dropping draft hints?

Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is supposedly dropping hints on his Twitter account today about just who his team will select in the NFL draft that starts Thursday night.

Carroll is listing song titles and telling his followers to read the clues. You can follow along here along with the coach’s current 386,000 followers. But here’s a couple clues of my own.

For starters, Carroll isn’t about to telegraph other teams who his team is interested in. Secondly, the Seahawks don’t know who will be available when they pick, so even they don’t know exactly who will be available at their turns.

And most importantly, each of Carroll’s tweets comes with a link to that song’s music video on the website. And, yes, Bing is a corporate partner of the Seahawks, who wear their logo on their practice jerseys along with other sponsor relations.

It’s also worth noting that Carroll recently hired USC blogger Ben Malcolmson to help blog and tweet for him, so it’s probably a safe guess that the coach himself isn’t spending a lot of time today pondering musical titles.

But, hey, it’s all for about entertainment, so if you want to play along, here are the song titles listed so far:

# “Freebird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd

# “Ring of fire” by Johnny Cash.

# “Today was a fairytale” by Taylor Swift.

# “Jeremy” by Pearl Jam.

# “Big Balls” by AC/DC.

# “Licking stick” by James Brown.

# “Superman’s song” by Crash Test Dummies.

# “California love” by Tupac.

# “Smooth criminal” by Michael Jackson.

# “Jump around” by House of Pain.

# “Back door man” by the Doors.

# “Let the beat build” by Lil’ Wayne.

# “Soul sacrifice” by Santana.
