Getting rave reviews from a starting fullback should be an encouraging sign for a rookie quarterback.

Especially when that fullback was an accomplished college quarterback.

“Russell Wilson can play,” Michael Robinson told “The Kevin Calabro Show” on Wednesday, noting how the rookie throws a “catchable ball” and shows impressive poise, which Robinson said is noticeable when Wilson deftly commands a huddle full of veterans.

“You don’t look at him as a rookie,” said Robinson, who finished fifth in Heisman voting and led Penn State to an Orange Bowl win as a senior in 2005. “You get the sense that he’s been around for a while, and I think that’s gonna help him going down the road.”

In Thursday’s Wrap Up video, Brock Huard and Mike Salk give their assessment of where Wilson stands after the Seahawks’ rookie minicamp, organized team activities and mandatory minicamp.
