Donald Stephenson is NOT Russell Wilson

New, comments

The Chiefs offensive tackle was selected one spot ahead of Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in the 2012 NFL Draft. After Wilson's playoffs performance, Stephenson is catching some flack from fans.

You know who may not be feeling all that good about the way Russell Wilson helped lead the Seattle Seahawks to victory on Sunday night?

Donald Stephenson.

Indeed, the Chiefs offensive tackle is catching some flack from fans after Wilson's big game.

Back in April, the Chiefs used the 74th overall pick on Stephenson, the offensive tackle out of Oklahoma. With the very next pick, the Seahawks selected Wilson.

So ... yeah. That stings.

Apparently, Stephenson is hearing about this from some Chiefs fans.

Such is life in the NFL ... and that's why the NFL is so great. We CAN judge whether the correct pick was made. And if it wasn't, we will talk about it for years and years.

Just ask Todd Blackledge.
