“I don’t want to get too emotional,” Woolen said. “But I just remember sitting in front of my family [on draft day], just getting calls from different people. I was just embarrassed because I was thinking it was a team calling, because I was hearing different stuff.
“I was just seeing corners go, corners go, and I was like, ‘Dang, I’m just going to be here [waiting].’ Day 3 came, and I had met with the Seahawks at the combine. … I just remember walking in, and Coach Pete [Carroll] started smiling.”
Of course, Carroll’s Seahawks selected the UTSA product in the fifth round, with the 153rd overall pick. Twenty cornerbacks were taken before Woolen — including four in the first round and his Seattle teammate Coby Bryant in the fourth round.
