***Russell Wilson Bandwagon*** #LetRussCook in The Shark Pool (NFL Talk) Posted August 23, 2012 Is there any historical precedent for a qb under 5'11 succeeding?Here is a list of every(?) NFL quarterback under 5'11"The only 2 quarterbacks who were successful were Eddie LeBaron (4 Pro Bowls) and Doug Flutie (1 Pro Bowl).Wilson does have one thing going in his favor, however: he's not that short.He measured 5' 10 5/8" at the Senior Bowl. He is that short.He's got a high release point, huge hands, good vision, and running ability though, on top great character both on- and off-field.I legitimately believe he would have gone ahead of Tannehill in the top 10 if he'd been 6'1" or taller. Whether he can succeed at his height, as a rookie, in a Seahawks passing offense that lacks consistent playmakers? I don't know, but I think it's worth it for the Seahawks to find out.
