Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks selected Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson with the 75th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Fantasy analysis: Wilson's only notable drawback is his lack of height (5-foot-11). He draws accurate comparison to Drew Brees, and we have all seen how his height deficiency has turned out.

Seattle gave starter money to Matt Flynn, and Tarvaris Jackson remains on roster. It is entirely possible that Wilson is the third quarterback all year.

His long-term value is intriguing, but he is not draftable in any normal fantasy football format at this time.
