Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Wednesday, July 12 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
Wilson Featured In Pro Football Focus' "Foundation Draft"
The analysts over at Pro Football Focus imagined starting the entire league over from scratch and put together their first Foundation Draft using a pool of players from across the world (NFL, college, high school and talented player's children). In this draft, nothing to the game of football changes, just team rosters.
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was the third overall selection in the Foundation Draft after quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Andrew Luck. Wilson's consistency at the position since entering the league made him an easy choice for analyst Ben Stockwell:
*Wilson has delivered consistently since he entered the NFL. A mobile quarterback he may be, but Wilson can dissect NFL defenses with his arm and has earned a PPF overall grade above 85.0 in each of his five seasons and finished above 90 three times. Under 30 years of age, Wilson's versatility, age and ability to succeed regardless of the platform and support around him makes him the ideal foundation quarterback. *
Wilson was the only Seahawks player to be selected in the first round of PFF's Foundation Draft, which you can read in full here.
