miami prob gunna be pissed they passed on him. I wanted him...but he needs to start somewhere. wisconsin has a huge o-line ...i think he will be better than brees.

Yeah, if he doesnt win a super bowl and set the NFL record for passing yards in a season I would consider Russell Wilson a failure

Flynn gets the first chance. However, they didn't give him a franchise QB type contract, so when he struggles, and I believe he will, they will give Russell his chance to start.

Flynn: 3 years $26M $10M guaranteed. Not bad at all. Great deal if he plans out.

Seattle sure has collected a bunch of good back up QBs. I think Wilson can be good, but not in Seattle.

Is this the same Flynn that stunk up the place at LSU. LSU's best quarterback prospect was Jamarcus Russell, you can fill in the blanks.

I would agree with this. However, circumstances beyond control of the individual athlete sometimes dictate whether a guy makes it or not. Size plays a big factor in the NFL and while I know Brees is around six feet, it basically took the Chargers drafting Rivers before the light went off.

Chris Leak is another example of a guy who was weeded out of the NFL due to size.

Sometimes people come along that defy these sort of size limitations and still manage to succeed. It's not as though he was playing with a tiny OL in college, in fact most of his OL was as big or larger than your average NFL unit.

I'm a huge UNC fan but for some odd reason, I really, really, really like Russell Wilson. I hope he is able to win the job and turn that Seattle program back in the right direction so they can kick the 49ers' ass in years to come.

Instead of looking at his height, look at his success in college. He was unreal at NCSU, and was in the heisman race at Wisconsin and was only there for a season.

Of the QB's that threw at the combine, I thought he had the best touch and strength of the group.

Better arm than Brees or Brady. Good mobility. The lights won't be too bright after 50 college starts.

He has everything that I would look for in a QB if I was drafting him really high, except for a few inches.

TD:INT ratio
Completion %
At least 3 years starting
Able to make every throw

Only lacking in one area, and you got him in the 3rd.
