Seattle a 6th rd pick for a developmental QB? Developmental qbs are taken in the 6th rd when a team already has a backup. if a SB contending team needs someone to step in for a few games a guy like Mallet, Osswiller, Cousins, Foles are drafted somebody in the 2nd or 3rd rd. I can see Seattle bitting on Colin Klien late but they will still need a nfl backup.
The trade makes more sense if you take the jets out of it. Minn trades a 6th and Webb for Flynn. They pay Flynn 2mill more than they would Sanchez, but get a qb that spent 3 years in their division and (against that division last year) to me a better qb at this stage in their careers.
If seattle wants a flyer on a similar qb to Wilson, Josh Johnson is a FA and suits the bill better than Webb.
While I agree that the trade makes a lot of sense for minn and seattle to do it without the jets, the rest of what you say is completely wrong.
Here is a quote from today regarding the seattle QB plans:
Pete Carroll added that the team would like to replace flynn with a more athletic QB similar to russel wilson.
Here is another quote from a breakdown of seattles offense:
What the Seahawks have also done is incorporate the zone read-option from the Pistol and traditional gun formations. Against the 49ers, they had quite a bit of success with it against the weak-side defender. In the play below, they read unblocked outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks from the shotgun set with Lynch aligned to the right of Wilson.
Lastly, the developmental QB i was thinking about for seattle is mat scott from arizona who in no way is considered a 3rd round pick in a draft this deep. He is a very mobile QB with a strong arm, who needs some time to develop, IMO the perfect player to sit behind wilson.
