Notable QB’s Drafted in the MLB Draft

With the Super Bowl looming Sunday between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers I thought this would be a good time to go over the notable quarterbacks that have been drafted by, and turned down, Major League Baseball teams. The most notable on the list is recent Super Bowl winner and two-time Super Bowl leading QB Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks who was drafted by the Texas Rangers. Let’s take a look at what could have been for MLB and in one case for the New York Yankees.

Russell Wilson – Texas Rangers (Seattle Seahawks)
Johnny Manziel – San Diego Padres (Cleveland Browns)
Colin Kaepernick – Chicago Cubs (San Francisco 49ers)
Jake Locker – Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (Tennessee Titans)
Matt Moore – Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (Miami Dolphins)
Dennis Dixon – 2003 Cincinnati Reds, 2007 Atlanta Braves (Pittsburgh Steelers)
Brandon Weeden – New York Yankees (Cleveland Browns)
Michael Vick – Colorado Rockies (Atlanta Falcons)
