If you remove Russel Wilson from the Seahawks roster and put him into the 2013 draft, he'd probably be projected and the #1.
So the fact is, that Russel Wilson last year wasn't projected as someone who would likely be a successful NFL starter.
What? No one wanted Wilson, other than the Seahawks, due to his height.
There's no ****ing way that would have changed this year. Now, it might make some teams question that philosophy in the future, due to Russell's success in spite of being 5'11.
But there is no ****ing way he'd be the clear #1 option at QB in 2013.
