I figured this might be an interesting topic/debate.

I'd go with Wilson but that's because he's just way more ready. In three years, I might be on the Osweiler bandwagon should he pan out. The only real downside to Wilson is his height.

P

Osweiler

He is taller and has a nice arm. Disciplined D's can keep Wilson in the pocket where he can't see or use his legs.

21 vs 24. 6-7 vs 5-10 1/2. Easy call.

Osweiler because his legs are also really good for a man of his stature . yes I do like wilson and wanted us to draft him .Osweiler is not meant to be the same QB in two years.

I preface my choice based on the fact that I haven't seen the KFC meltdown yet. I was going off what I saw vs us.

See....I found this to be an interesting poll question because of the height of each QB.

Honestly, Osweiler's height concerns me almost as much as Wilson's height would concern me.

At least Osweiler is very athletic for his size and not a cement footed target back there in the pocket.

Osweiler seems to have more upside in terms of being a classic pocket passer with his arm strength and size, Wilson looks more ready right now and you can tell he has much more playing experience as a starting QB in the decisions he makes and how quickly he makes them.

The hype around Willson is getting crazy! Not just here, but everywhere

The dude looks good against vanilla defenses with no disguised fronts, shifts, stunts, etc. His running stats are going to be better. We should look back at this poll after game 4 if he starts. Will be interesting to see if he has kept it up. I picked Brock, because I like giant giraffes!

Love Russell and REALLY hope he continues to succeed and change traditional thinking, but Twilight has the full skill set.

Ozzy because of the upside.

Now, if they had to start right away, that would be a different story.

I think traditional thinking is shifting as more of these type are getting drafted with the idea of being starters and not gimmck change of pace. The change that has to happen now is to not try and cram them I to the "traditional" NFL QB mold.

Talking about his Doug Flutie height, not the athleticism mold

Adding Foles to this poll would've been interesting...

Osweiler because he's 21 and can sit for a few years. Wilson should be getting a look right away.

Foles is a pretty good pick too. I really like Brock's upside and arm strength, but Russell Wilson kinda reminds me of Doug Flutie because of his height and craftiness. So, I can't make that judgement until 3 years from now, but if I were to pick a QB to play now it would be Wilson.

The question isn't about who we should have chosen with that 2nd round pick...but what QB you would rather have on our roster.

Ozzy because you can't coach 6'7 with a laser rocket arm.

Wilson looks good but is Pete Carroll smart enough to build a team around him like Brees?

My top 2 outside of RGIII and Luck were Foles and Wilson going into the draft.

I didn't want Osweiler at all, but he has looked pretty good thus far and if I had to pick between these two it would be a super tough choice. I'll take Brock just because of stuff you can't teach. Age, height, rocket arm etc.

If we didn't have Manning then Wilson is the pick no doubt. He looks ready now.

I still might go Foles ahead of either of them though.

This looks to be one hell of a QB class.
