When asked about this year's NFL Draft, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson gives a brilliant response.

Earlier this month, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson led his team to a 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII. On Thursday, just four weeks after hoisting the Lombardi Trophy at MetLife Stadium, Wilson joined CNBC's "Fast Money" to discuss his stock strategies, the NFL draft and his involvement with the Texas Rangers.

When StockMonster's Guy Adami asked him a tough question on who he would pick first in the draft if he was a top general manager, the star player gave an epic response.

"I'll tell you this, if you want me to be a GM, great GMs don't tell," Wilson said with a chuckle.

"That is a great answer," said OptionMonster's Pete Najarian, as the traders celebrated Wilson's off-field performance.
