(Homer Pick) Russell Wilson as backup

This is just for fun.

I was reading up on projected draft placement for QBs, as we all know Flynn is gone. We knew it at the beginning of the year. After the NE performance, it was obvious he was going to try his hand in the market, and after the DET game, we knew someone was going to play top dollar for him. That's really neither here nor there. Wilson was predicted as a 4th or 5th round pick by some. Thompson won't draft a Brohm again. That clearly was a mistake. But picking him up later in the draft would be interesting. Obviously, the main concern is his height. I think he could see over the O-Line fairly easily, as the Badgers have one of the most comparable lines in college to the NFL. The D-Line might be a concern, but whatever. If he is a middle-round draft-pick, should he be taken as a backup if we don't have one? I know Nick Hill is on there, but that is what training camp is for.

I honestly wish McCarthy was more creative, because having him and Cobb as possible rotational QBs for some plays would get a TO out of some teams, and maybe some yards. Moreso Wilson than Cobb. I really wouldn't expect it to happen that often. I expect better results than the Jon Fox "Tebow Sneak-in" that happened against GB this year. Wilson can actually throw the ball.
