Well, this certainly is a bit of a surprise. When the Seattle Seahawks traded Russell Wilson to the Broncos, everyone assumed that Drew Lock would take over as the team's starter. Not so fast.

That's because early on, Geno Smith appears to have the upper hand in the QB battle. Will the veteran signal-caller end up winning the job?

Lock is former first-round pick, but he never lived up to the hype. The same can be said for Smith, as he struggled at times last year running the O for Seattle when Wilson was injured. This will definitely be a QB battle to watch, though.
