Seattle Seahawks select Russell Wilson, Grade B

The Seattle Seahawks needed to come away with a quarterback to develop at some point in this draft, and Russell Wilson is a solid choice. However, the 3rd round is a little too early to take a guy who projects as a career backup.

I love Wilson’s leadership and his intangibles, but he lacks the physical tools to be an elite starter at the next level. I do think he will have a long career and be an excellent backup and spot starter, but Seahawks fans should keep a realistic mindset about this selection. Wilson is not the future franchise quarterback. More realistically, he’s the next Seneca Wallace.
