How Russell Wilson Could've Had A Pro Baseball Career

Updated: May 18, 2023

Russell Wilson will most likely be introduced into the NFL Hall of Fame once he retires. A current career record of 107-58-1 with multiple playoff appearances along with 299 career touchdown passes marks a small portion of what is an extremely impressive resume of the Denver Broncos QB1.

Wilson’s career could have been very different, in fact he may not have even been well known if it wasn’t for a critical choice that he made back in 2010. Russell Wilson was drafted by the Colorado Rockies as the 140th pick in the 2010 MLB Draft to play baseball in the rocky mountain state.

That 140th overall pick put Wilson higher than Jacob deGrom (272nd by NYM), Kris Bryant (546th by TOR), and Aaron Judge (935th by NYY). All three of those players will be future hall of fame candidates and yet they were all drafted outside the top 200 as Wilson got a top 150 pick.

Wilson would end up putting his name in the 2012 NFL Draft where he would be drafted in the third round with the 75th pick made by the Seattle Seahawks.
