In 2015, Russell Wilson made one of the most stunning in-season transformations in NFL history, going from an almost pure randomized sandlot-style quarterback to a refined pocket passer. The rewards were immense for Seattle’s offense. The beauty of it all: being a pocket passer doesn’t mean Wilson can’t run around and make plays when needed. It does mean Seattle can significantly expand its playbook. How Wilson builds on that late-season progress will go a long way toward shaping the age-old debate of whether a quarterback can be rewired once he reaches the pros.
