Robert Griffin III
It’s hard to believe that the one thing possibly keeping Russell Wilson from being a top five draft pick was his height. Because Wilson is “only” 5-foot-11, NFL scouts including 2000 Heisman Trophy winner Chris Weinke believed that, “If (Wilson) was six-five, he’d probably be the number one pick in the draft.” Looks like he’s doing a great job of bucking conventional wisdom.
Russell Wilson has shown he has top-tier quarterback skills, well beyond his ability to run.
Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson left college together, were drafted in the same class, made the playoffs as rookies and wound up going to the Pro Bowl together.
Having an elite signal-caller who can win you the game in crunch time is essential for any NFL franchise.

The Seattle Seahawks overcame a 14-0 deficit and a poor performance in the red zone to knock off the Washington Redskins and move on to play the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday.
Washington is a lot like the San Francisco team that was blown out by Seattle two weeks ago, but the Hawks will have to stop the running game and beat Jim Haslett’s exotic blitzes.
The biggest injury to watch in Seattle’s game against Washington is Robert Griffin III’s sprained knee.
A lot is expected of a top-10 draft pick, no matter their position. See who will do what once the season kicks off.
