The third-round pick from Wisconsin won the Seahawks' starting QB job by completing 63.5% of his passes and throwing five TDs and just one interception in the preseason.
DAN PATRICK: How tall are you?
RUSSELL WILSON: Right under 5'11". Weighing in at a full 210 pounds.
DP: So you're under 5'11"?
RW: That's what people say, but I don't believe 'em.
DP: How many times did you hear, We love everything about you, but you're not tall enough?
RW: Quite often. But I wasn't going to let that discourage me. The Seattle Seahawks went against the grain and drafted me. I'm just going to keep running with the opportunity.
DP: How surprised are you that you're the starting quarterback?
