2012 Rose Bowl: Russell Wilson Falters, Waits For NFL Draft

The 2012 Rose Bowl saw the Wisconsin Badgers fall to the Oregon Ducks, 45-38, and for Russell Wilson this means the end of his college career. While a loss is one thing, the way in which Wilson didn't even get one last play must surely be a burning memory for him. He attempted to spike the ball with just a couple of ticks left on the clock, but upon a decent length of review, it was confirmed that there was no time left on the clock once the ball hit the ground. The Ducks won the Rose Bowl.

Wilson now faces his second draft in three years. He was a fourth-round draft pick by the Colorado Rockies in the 2010 MLB Draft, but no one is quite sure what future Wilson has in the NFL. He has been knocked for his height since he comes in just below six feet tall, but he had strong season for the Badgers. He threw for over 3,000 yards and had 33 touchdown passes.

According to NFLDraftScout.com, Wilson projects as a Round 4 or 5 selection. Obviously that is not as good as being a fourth-round pick in the MLB Draft, but he would definitely be considered a quarterback to watch in camp for whichever team drafts him.
