Pete Carroll likes Tebow, Eric Decker

Since we can find dozens upon dozens of outlets that are crushing the Broncos draft, how about some knowledgeable people - and there seems to be more and more of them - that like Tim Tebow, and Eric Decker for that matter.

The latest is Seattle Head Coach Pete Carroll, who gave his feelings on several prospects, Tebow and Decker included -

Regarding Tebow, Carroll was quick to give praise -

"I think anybody that got Tim Tebow had a good draft because I think he's going to surprise everybody," Carroll said. "And I think he's going to be a fantastic addition to a team. There's another guy that we would have really liked to have been able to add for the future because of what he brings. He will not let these issues about throwing motions and things be in the way. He will will his way through that if he's anything at all like I know."

Of course, the Seahawks play the Broncos this season and I'm sure Carroll wouldn't want to start the bulletin-board war already. 

He also had high-praise for Decker, who was coached by former Broncos assistant Jed Fisch at Minnesota.  Fisch is now a coach in Seattle -

"Very, very good receiver," Carroll said, "and we have a guy [previously] on that [Minnesota] staff, Jedd Fisch, who coached him and we knew all about him and really were hoping to get a chance to get him, too."

Not enlightening news, of course, but something to talk about is better than nothing!
