Details are still emerging, but when all is said and done, the deal will see three players (Lock, Harris, and Fant) go to Seattle along with two first-round picks, two second-round picks, and a fifth-round pick. The Broncos, meanwhile, get Wilson plus a Round 4 choice

Did Seattle get a better haul than the Lions did for Stafford?  Just on the face of it, it feels like they did.

Looked up the players on pro-football-reference and none of them seem like anything major, other than Fant seems like he's had decent production at TE.  But still, 2 first and 2 second.  Unless Goff comes back as a productive QB I'd say the Seahawks scored much better in this trade.

Time will tell if Wilson ends up being a key asset for the Broncos but looking at it now they WAY overpaid imho.

Seattle absolutely got a better package for Wilson than the Lions got for Stafford.    The biggest reason why is that Stafford winning the SB in year 1 raised the bar.    When Brady won it in TB most chalked it up to he’s Tom Brady and does things nobody else can do.  When Stafford won the SB, it solidified what can happen when you add a franchise QB to a good team.    

The better debate on the subject is if Russell Wilson right now is a better than Matthew Stafford.   I say no.

That's probably a valid argument.  IIRC there were rumors that Bronco's where trying to get Stafford so there's inevitably going to be some idea that: "Holmes should have traded to Denver... look at how much more he would have gotten!"  But this obviously assumes that they would have offered anything close to this last year.
