Russell Wilson is in the QB competition in Seattle
Seahawks rookie 3rd round pick Russell Wilson made the most of the recently finished 3 day rookie camp.
By the end of it all Pete Carroll deemed Wilson ready to compete for the starting job with Matt Flynn and Tarvaris Jackson.
- "He's in the competition. That is going to tax us, as we know," Carroll said Sunday. "It was already going to be taxing with two, but he's shown us enough that we need to see where he fits in with these guys."
Wilson was groomed for three years at North Carolina State and last season at Wisconsin in a West Coast-style offense. Carroll said his preparation for the weekend camp was excellent, and estimated Wilson ran 500 plays, and threw 400 balls over the three days.
"He can do everything," Seahawks GM John Schneider said of Wilson, dubbing him one of the three best players he scouted last fall. "There's nothing he can't do. He's just short, but that's it."
Realistic or not, Wilson is in the running to start if he continues to impress the Seattle brass.
The depth chart as of now is Jackson, Flynn, Wilson, Portis. A nice dilemna.
