Anyone looking for clues on whom the Seattle Seahawks will select in next year's NFL draft can skip all the analysts and go straight to the source -- coach Pete Carroll.

The Seahawks' social media savvy coach posted clues on Twitter about a handful of his team's picks this year.

Carroll's first tweet, on the day of the draft, was the following:


This video is from a classic Saturday Night Live sketch in which Chris Farley is a motivational speaker who lives in a van "down by the river." As it turned out, the Seahawks traded down with their first-round pick.

Carroll's second clue was another video:


At the 1:06 mark of this clip, comedian John. C. Reilly jokes that he wants to fight Muhammad Ali. The legendary boxer's given name was Cassius Clay. The Seahawks' fourth-round pick was UCLA defensive end Cassius Marsh. See how this works?

Ferrell, a close friend of Carroll dating back to their USC days, was the star of another one of the coach's clues.


This scene, from Old School, co-stars Sean William Scott. Seattle's sixth-round selection was Marshall offensive tackle Garrett Scott.

Jared Stanger of the Seahawks blog Field Gulls cracked these and several of Carroll's other tweets, and his detective work earned him a shoutout from the man himself.
