    Re: Ravens should draft Russel Wilson with 1st round pick

    It just doesn't make sense to use a draft pick on a guy that you don't envision as a contributor in the future.

    Now, if he goes undrafted and is invited to Baltimore to try out for the team as a UDFA, then cool.

    Wilson by far is the most NFL ready QB in this draft. He has the footwork of a Drew Brees and the escapibility of a young McNabb. His pocket awareness is almost Manning like. A born leader like Ray Lewis and plays with a chip on his shoulder like Tom Brady. He has the arm and the touch to make every throw. He can maneuver in the pocket, make throws on the run , extend plays, and he protects the ball. All this is overlook because he is 511 in stature, 3 inches shorter that RG3 and 5 inches shorter than Luck. But outweighs them both in skills. Not only did throw for over 8,500 yards in 3yrs (2 1/2yrs as starter) at NC State but pass for 76 TDs. Of course rewards and records followed him during his time there. In 2010 he was drafted by the Colorado Rockies to play 2nd base. Second Base and shortstop is the most athletic positions in baseball I remind you.

    Even after all his success he still wanted to play football and live his dream of being a NFL quarterback. On June 27th 2011 he was released from his football scholarship from NC State and transferred to Wisconsin. In one month time he learned the playbook and got the starting position. He threw for over 3,100 yards and 33 TDs with only 4 ints with a 191.8 passer rating (76%completion). Wisconsin was 2nd behind Stanford in red zone offense. These mean he does not turn the ball over and makes smart decisions inside the red zone and scores TDs.(Wisconsin 95%, Stanford 98%). He led Wisconsin to a Big Ten Championship. Still not impressed yet? Or is his height still a concern for you? His starting offensive line average height was 65 which is on par with NFL lineman. Any NFL scout who perfected his craft will see that Wilson is the best QB available in this draft. If any team drafts RG3 or Luck before him it is simply because of a few INCHES in height not how they play the game. For each team that will pass on him they will regret it deeply i.e.; Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady. He has a GOD given skill set and athletics to become one of the new breed of QBs the NFL has not yet seen. Coming from a family of lawyers his knowledge and IQ are superb and is not in question. He is a baller, he does not know anything else.

    Anybody that actually knows football and the QB position can look at tape of Russel Wilson and see that he does and knows stuff that Joe Flacco still does not know how to do. Or is still learning how to do. Like pocket awareness, learning when to throw ball away, when to take a sack, how to extend plays in pocket. Granted Flacco had succes in the leauge so far. i will pin more on the Baltimore raven Team for his success than his individual performence.

    PS- He ran a 4.55 40yard dash for those who like to look at numbers.

    AWARDS AND RECORDS:
    2008- ACC Rookie of year
    2008- 1st team All ACC
    2009-(NCAA RECORD) Most passing attempts without throwing a INT(389)
    2010- 2nd team all ACC
    2010-11-(NCAA RECORD) Most consecutive game with TD pass(38)
    2011- Big 10 QB of the year
    2011- Big 10 Championship game MVP
    2011-(NCAA RECORD) Pass Efficiency for single season (191.8)
    You are either his agent or dating his sister but to suggest that he should be first round material when everybody else has him rated 4th round or worse is a bit of a stretch.
    So he has some success at the collegiate level but let me ask you the question. If he's the most NFL bound QB would you adivse the Colts to take him #1 overall? You're fascination with Wilson seems to suggest that the's going to take the league by storm and you're suggestion that the Ravens should select him in the first round clearly shows you don't have a good pulse on the team's needs.

    I like Wilson, had great college career. He will find a job somewhere. His height is what won't make him a high pick. I see some team taking him later in the draft. He is a pretty accurate passer. Height can be overrated, but no team will give up more than a 5th rounder for him, IMO. Good player, smart player, though. Ravens won't take him, they have other needs and Tyrod Taylor will a similar skillset.

    Tom Brady was a 6th round draft choice, you're wrong about that, and wrong about drafting Wilson in the 1st round. This thread just goes to prove that anyone can start one... Bc

    5th round sounds about right to me too. Wilson is a good leader too which is also something that teams will pick up on. I heard an interview with him a week ago and the first question was about his poor start of the Senior Bowl. He wasn't able to excuse it but he was able to at least explain it. That's a good sign for his interviews.

    If wilson was 6'4 he would be the number 1 pick in the draft. No question ask. His heights scares people. But any scout will look at how tall wilson o-line was at wisconsin. Can anybody tell me how and why is Luck or RG3 a better QB than Wilson will besides height?

    Well in your opinion would you be absolutely shock if he doesn't go in the first round then?

    Wilson should get drafted so we'll see what he can in the NFL. His height though is a huge issue with NFL teams. They have always given taller quarterback prospects more points than shorter ones.

    Re: Ravens should draft Russel Wilson with 1st round pick

    I've never seen anyone play quarterback in the NFL on stilts before - and it would be kind of interesting to watch. Given his 5'10" height advantage he could change out his stilts to adjust to game situations.

    i know he is not going to go in the 1st round unless some team swims upstream and goes outside the box. He is projected as a late pick. I understand that. But on my own personal draft board i value him as the #1 QB in the draft. Definetly the most overlook or undervalued player.

    Again i will ask any one to go look at Wisconsin o-linemen height from last year. I make it easy and do one for you, PETER KONZ, ravens fav. He is 6'5.

    Hey may not be the #1 pick in the draft, but he certainly would be in round 1 discussion.
