Wilson Previews "QB2QB"

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has big shoes to fill on ESPN following the departure of now-Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden, which ended his "Gruden's QB Camp" series.

But Wilson is certainly up for the challenge as ESPN prepares to air his replacement series, "QB2QB," starting April 17 which features the Seahawks quarterback mentoring four top prospects ahead of the 2018 NFL Draft: Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, Ohio State's J.T. Barrett, Penn State's Saquon Barkley and Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph. In each episode Wilson talks with each player about football and life.

"I can't wait for this. It's gold," Wilson told Sam Farmer of The Los Angeles Times. "It's just a special show where you really get to see who these young men are, and what they're going to become. They really get raw and honest and just truthful about their experiences in life."

Added Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll: "I think it's unusual for anybody other than Gruden to do it," Carroll said. "Jon's been such a fixture. It's something that's dear to Russell's heart, the whole quarterbacking and the art of it. I think he's really going to have fun with it. Get a chance to meet some guys and share some stuff. I don't think it's any big deal."
