ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. on the Seahawks draft:
“I think what Pete Carroll did was he went with familiarity. He got guys that he recruited or coached against or he coached at USC when he get Anthony McCoy, he got LenDale White, several Pac-10 players. I thought he did a real good job overall of getting what he needed at a variety of positions and adding a couple veteran backs as well.”
Wide receiver Ronald Johnson said he will definitely have surgery on his wrist. He said the surgery’s been pushed back until USC completes finals. Johnson practiced Thursday but wore a yellow jersey, meaning no contact was allowed. He will not play in Saturday’s scrimmage.
Lane Kiffin sounded less certain about the status of linebacker Jordan Campbell, who is currently suspended.
“We’re still looking into the incident,” Kiffin said. “We’re told he didn’t do anything.”
Kiffin did not say what the alleged incident was.
