1. Russell Wilson

In present day, this guy is quite a polarizing figure. Russell Wilson the Bronco is much different Russell Wilson the Seahawk ever was. But, let's talk about his days in Seattle and spare the negativity.

As a third-round pick back in 2012, the former Wisconsin Badger standout earned the starting gig as a rookie, even though the Seahawks had just paid Matt Flynn big money as a free agent. Wilson would only go on to an 11-5 record as a rookie, earning Pro Bowl honors and leaving zero doubt that he was the team's franchise quarterback.

Overall, Wilson would earn nine Pro Bowl nods and throw for over 4,000 yards on four occasions. His best season came in 2020, when Wilson threw for 4,212 yards, 40 touchdowns and just 12 picks.

However, maybe the most impressive season for Wilson, all things considered, was just his second year in the league. As a sophomore in the NFL, Wilson led the Seahawks to a Super Bowl championship when they absolutely routed the Denver Broncos, 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII.

Being known as one of the greatest deep passers in history, it might be a very long time before we see the type of accuracy on long balls we saw from Wilson.

Sitting first all-time in Seahawks passing yards, Wilson threw for 37,059 yards, 292 touchdowns and 87 interceptions.
