Russell Wilson was drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the 4th Round/140th Pick.
Apparently, the Rockies love some ACC Quarterbacks as Kyle Parker was drafted earlier.
Some interesting Tweets:
MikeBart1434 played against NC State’s Russell Wilson, he is a freak athlete played 4 diff positions against us, also QB for football team #mlbdraft
grittree RT @FSUROCKER: That’s two #ACC QBs for the #Rockies. Kyle Parker first, then Russell Wilson. #MLBDRAFT
brandonmac51 Colorado is loading up on quarterbacks in the #MLBDraft.. Wait, did that make sense?
johnmanuelba Wow, stunned the Rockies pop NC State 2b/of Russell Wilson. He’s also the QB, has flashed hitting tools, but that’s a stunner #mlbdraft

Update (2:45): An hour later and GoPack.com is still silent
Update (8:00): Wilson calls Coach O’Brien to say he will be on the field in August. GoPack.com finally gets in on the action. But c’mon really? In my opinion, this is just leverage against the Rockies… I don’t think we’ll see Russell play another snap (or pitch) for the Wolfpack.
