Pete Carroll gives credit to John Schneider for drafting Russell Wilson

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told the media today that a lot of time people tell him how fortunate he is to have been able to draft Russell Wilson.

“It’s real common for people to say, ‘Hey, we loved that guy too,’” Carroll said.

Carroll praised general manager John Schneider for pulling the trigger and drafting Wilson.

“John Schneider led the charge on this thing. John had it pegged perfectly where it happened for us. He had been sweating it out in the second round,” Carroll said.

If you don’t remember,  Carroll recently admitted that Schneider had to convince him to draft Wilson.
