Carroll on Dan Patrick show: WR Tate a playmaker at minicamp

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll appeared on The Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday. Carroll talked about the team’s rookie draft class, possible sanctions at USC and former player Taylor Mays, among other subjects.

Carroll said that Notre Dame wide receiver Golden Tate probably made the most plays out of all the rookies during the team’s post-draft minicamp two weeks ago.

He talked about passing on his former player Taylor Mays, and the differences between quarterback Tim Tebow and Jimmy Clausen.

Carroll also said he was, “just disappointed as could be,” in finding out about his former player Brian Cushing being suspended for four games for violating the NFL’s drug policy.

Carroll told Patrick he did not expect USC to receive a harsh penalty for its role in the Reggie Bush situation. “I’d be surprised if there are,” he said.
