Instant starters at QB do not tend to get drafted in Rd 3 by and large.
I don't recall anyone last year riding the Russell Wilson bandwagon as being a starter in year 1 let alone from day 1 and leading a playoff charge.The very fact they spent heavily on Matt Flynn ought to tell you they drafted Wilson to learn behind Flynn for a year or two before possibly being ready to take over sometime down the line or maybe at best to fulfil some sort of Tebow/Brad Smith style wildcat/change-up option off the bench....hence he was a project.
The fact he then impressed so much that they went with him over Flynn may have been a best case scenario hope but I highly doubt that the Seahawks really felt that he was their number 1 from the off.Good for them he turned out so well although it'll be interesting to see where he is after year 4.
Would be quite a shock if Glennon dropped that far.
