At least three teams, and quite possibly more, planned to draft Wisconsin's Wilson shortly after the Seahawks selected him with the 75th overall pick in the third round of April's draft, according to league sources.
The Philadelphia Eagles
intended to draft Wilson 13 slots after Seattle's pick, at No. 88 overall, to back up Michael Vick
but wound up drafting Arizona quarterback Nick Foles
instead.The Indianapolis Colts
planned to pick Wilson with the 92nd overall selection in the third round to back up Luck before taking Florida International wide receiver T.Y. Hilton
And even the Washington Redskins
would have grabbed Wilson with the 102nd overall pick in the fourth round to back up Griffin, but when he was gone, they picked Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins
