Russell Wilson Talks About Being Drated By The Texas Rangers – VIDEO

Last Thursday, the Texas Rangers selected Russell Wilson in Major League Baseball’s Rule 5 Draft.

The Rangers selected Wilson, the 25-year old starting quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks, from the Colorado Rockies, and now retain his rights.

Wilson was selected in the 41st-round of the MLB Amateur Draft by the Baltimore Orioles in 2007, before being taken in the fourth round by the Rockies in 2010.
