2016 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


Over four seasons in the NFL, Wilson has a 46-18 record with a Super Bowl title. He set career highs in completions (329), pass attempts (483), passing yards (4034), and passing TDs (34). Russell gained 8.3 yards per pass attempt. His only area of decline was his value in the run game (103/553/1). Wilson had only one game with over 300 yards passing. His season was off to a slow start as far as passing TDs. In his first nine games of the year, Russell had one TD in eight different games and two TDs in his other game. Over the last seven games, Wilson was an entirely different player in TD production. He had 24 passing TDs and only one Ints over this period, which included four games with three TDs and two games with five TDs. Russell may have the best receiving corps since arriving in Seattle as long as Jimmy Graham become relevant again. Doug Baldwin was one of the best receivers in the league over the last eight games of the season, and Tyler Lockett has developing talent. Wilson's overall package rates as one of the best in the league. Here are my closing lines from his 2015 profile: I'm seeing 480 passing attempts with 300+ pass completions for 3700+ yards and 28+ passing TDs. He can't help but run for 600+ yards with a handful of rushing TDs. I expect Russell to be a top five QB in 2015. I don't like his offensive line in 2016, but Russell has enough talent to make the players around him better. Last year was somewhat of a perfect storm as far as passing TDs. This year Seattle should be more productive running the ball in close. I think 4500+ combined yards is now a reasonable bar with a chance at 35+ combined TDs.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
7.01 Benny Ricciardi - I am really high on Russ this year. I have him as QB3 this year behind Cam and Rodgers, so I loved him falling to me in round 7.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
7.09 Gridiron Experts - Jody Smith - I'm firmly onboard with the "wait on QB" strategy, but generally is a top-3 option is available towards the latter part of Round 6, value comes into play. Wilson is my No. 3 signal-caller this season, so I had to grab him here, and after doing so, several other QB's quickly went, reaffirming my decision to take an elite QB a little earlier than expected. 
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
6.07 Scout Fantasy - Mark Morales-Smith - Wilson has jumped Big Ben in my top four QBs this offseason due to issues with Bell and Bryant. I waited for the other 3 QBs to go and took the fourth that was left. It was Wilson.
