Kevin Walsh profiles the Seattle's starting quarterback.

Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson may not frighten teams with his arm, but his scrambling ability gives cause for pause.

"You have to be careful with him in the pocket, or getting out of the pocket," says Bill Belichick. "He's active."

Listed just under 6-feet tall, Wilson is prone to batted balls.

"It's a goal to bat down the ball," says defensive end Chandler Jones. "If he's throwing low balls, definitely try to get my hands up and bat a few passes down."

Wilson has thrown five interceptions in the last two games, so whether he's throwing low, throwing picks, or scrambling outside the pocket, the Patriots defense will need to keep an eye on the mobile quarterback.
