First, it's Wilson looking like a Sith lord in the draft intro video. Now this:

I actually kind of liked their choice/reasoning for Wilson. Sherman made an appearance too.

Here is a guess with out looking, something based on his height? Yoda or an ewok?

Don't forget- Sherman as Boba Fett! Good choice!

One of his Twitter "followers" needs to "tweet" him this. I'd love to hear his reaction.

Some of those are awesome (Tebow as Jar Jar, Wilfork as Jabba). Others, not so much (Rodgers as Solo, Lewis as Obi-Wan).

Yeah, Ewok...Wicket specifically. But the description actually makes sense.

Yeesh, the Wicket reference is not that flattering.

On a side note, everywhere I look that is NFL related, I am bound to see a reference to Russell Wilson or Richard Sherman. It's inevitable, unavoidable, and really kinda awesome. The media is quite intently watching our every move, and it's apparent that they really, really, really like this team. Some have already come out and said we'll be the best team in football this year, others are probably thinking it but are taking the "safe" pick with the 49ers, but tipping their hat to us by offering up the #2 spot in their rankings.

Gah... Is it September yet? This is the most excited I've ever been for a football season.

Love the Sherman one. Russell's is a little backhanded, to the say the least, haha.

I don't think it fits. Sherman isn't the most overrated player in the league. Boba Fett is extremely hyped up by fans but didn't do a damn thing. All style, no substance.

Suprised there's been no Wilson - R2D2 comparisons then you reference his height and robotic-tendencies :)

Who knew Porkins liked the rapin'.

And I thought Lucas just named him that because he was the fat pilot.

Roethlisberger as Porkins was perfect.

The Tebow one made me cringe because it was brutal.

Which of course made it even funnier.

As you can see, RW as Wicket just doesn't compute. And I would have cast Sherman as Jango Fett...he MUST have been cloned...he seems to be everywhere these days! And from the first line of Wikipedia "Jango Fett is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe. He is an antagonist..."

I do find if funny that I create a picture of RW as a Jedi (or Sith if you prefer...) and then out of the blue, Adam Rank at NFL.com comes up with this. :hmmmm:
