Professional Career of Russell Wilson

Technically he was the 1,222nd overall pick. Wilson passed down the offer and elected to attend North Carolina State.

Russell went on to play football, very effectively, for North Carolina State but was never invited to the NFL’s Scouting Combine. He then astonished everyone by expressing his decision to play professional baseball.

In 2011, Russell reported springing training with the Colorado Rockies.

Over the next two summers, Russell enjoyed decent success playing minor league baseball.

He also transferred to the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he spent one more year.

In another action that startled family and friends, in January 2012, Russell said he was going to begin training for the forthcoming NFL Scouting Combine.

He entered the 2012 NFL draft as a projected middle-round pick.

The Seattle Seahawks chose Russell Wilson in the third round as the 75th pick overall.

Not exactly high honors. Despite these modest beginnings, Russell has now gone on to achieve several distinctions since joining the team, including being named Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year, PFF Offensive Rookie of the Year, and rating #51 on the NFL Top 100 of 2013. He was a 2012 Pro Bowl selection.

At the XLIX Super Bowl, Wilson and the Seahawks almost repeated as champions but were defeated 28-24 by Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

Technically he is also still available to play Minor League baseball and was recently acquired by the Texas Rangers, but those career aspirations might need to fall to the wayside.
