Wisconsin Badger quarterback Russell Wilson may face long odds to make it in
the NFL. Quarterbacks under 6-feet don’t have a history of NFL success.
Yet Wilson managed to complete 73% of his passes while throwing for 3,175 yards, 33 touchdowns and just four interceptions. Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson offered this advice on Wilson’s chances.
One thing Wilson has going for him is his experience. He’s been able to function well in Madison, trying to throw over or through one of the largest offensive lines in all of college football.
