It just looks a little funny that Carroll and Schneider look like schmucks flying to Denver to try to get Peyton to Seattle, while overpaying for Flynn; yet drafting Wilson is more of a score for Schneider than getting Peyton is for Elway?
It's laughable....especially when you consider that Elway traded Tebow for more than he was worth and replaced him with the best QB in the league....but Seattle gets the nod for having a good QB drop to them in a QB loaded draft? Hokay.....
If Wilson was let's say 6'3" tall he would have been a top 10 QB pick. The only thing holding him back was his height. Yes, Seattle deserves a pat on the back for draft this guy but no, it was not a huge gamble in any way as he was not drafted real high and his only perceived flaw is his height.
