Think about all the QBs you wanted before we got RW

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Here is a list of the quarterbacks I wanted us to draft before we got Wilson. Some of these I was skeptical about, but I know I would have been happy if we had drafted them. I'm including the ones we had a shot at but not the #1 overall guys that we never had a shot at.

    Mark Sanchez
    Josh Freeman
    Jimmy Clausen HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
    Jake Locker
    Blaine Gabbert
    Andy Dalton
    Colin Kaepernick
    Ryan Mallett
    Ryan Tannehill
    Brock Osweiler

    I see one guy on that list that I think we would be really happy with (Kaepernick) and three guys we would probably be satisfied with but not doing backflips (Freeman, Dalton, Tannehill). As is, we got some superstar players (Okung, Thomas, Wagner) without ever SACRIFICING to get a GREAT QB.
    We want the ball and we're gonna score.

  • Out of all those the only one I was mildly interested in was Kaepernick. While the Tjoke era was painful and I mean painful, it was worth it if it got us Wilson.

    I've seen enough of those QBs in college to know that Kaep and Dalton would be pretty good and the rest would be long road development guys. I can't believe Clausen.....lol what a joke that was.

    Maybe Sanchez will go to Oakland to be with the other bust USC quarterbacks.

  • I'm ashamed to admit that I thought Gabbert would be a good NFL QB.

  • Tannehill and Dalton were the only ones I felt worthy (other than the obvious 1st round choices!).

  • I still would have liked to see Mallett in Seattle. Very happy with what they found in Wilson, but of the guys on that list he may have the highest up side as either Brady's successor, or learning under Brady and becoming a free agent in the next few years.

  • It pains me to admit that I thought Mark Sanchez would be a very good NFL quarterback.
    I thought he was a better choice at four than Aaron Curry, so I was wrong no matter how that came out.

    Felt that both Dalton and Kaepernick were first round worthy at the place we picked.
    Josh Freeman was the other guy I liked quite a lot.

    Mallett looked like the worst of character risks but he has been quiet in New England.
    I think Tannehill will always be "big show", no matter what he does on the field.

    I Really enjoyed watching Locker from high school all the way through UW but didn't really want him to be a Seahawk.
    Like Tebow, he might be a better running back than quarterback.

  • I was hoping for Manning but was stoked with the Flynn signing. Draft wise, was looking at either Couples or Foles (late). I'll take RW over all of them, with hindsight being 20/20. Phone ringing off the hook this morning with distant friends asking "what got into the Seahawks". ;)

  • Honestly?, We had a chance to take Kaepernick in that draft, and that's who I was pulling for back then.
    Wilson wasn't even in that draft nor even on my radar,,Still cringed when SF took Kaepernick.
    As much as I dislike Harbaugh, he was smart about changing away from Smith, but dumb about preparing the way for Kaepernick.

    :th2thumbs: :th2thumbs: Wilson has turned out to be the STEAL of both those drafts combined. :th2thumbs: :th2thumbs:
