Russell Wilson is among a number of quarterbacks that I consider to have shown significant skill sets that will make them starters one day, but who also have at least one glaring weakness that severely impacts their draft stock.
Brandon Weeden's stock overhang is obvious—he is 28 years old. Russell Wilson's issue is also well-known—he is only 5'11".
Ryan Tannehill also displays a good set of fundamental skills for a starter at the position, yet if there is one issue that tends to bug people about him, it is that he could not assemble good statistics or win games against better defenses in 2011.
Like Weeden and Tannehill, I expect Wilson to earn his shot at a starting job one day. Also like Weeden and Tannehill, it would not surprise me if Wilson were to develop into a high-level starter.
Let's take a look at some of his strengths and weaknesses.
