The "Pistol" Offense

What are your opinions on the offense? Is it a potentially revolutionizing change, or just a gimmick? Does it require a superstar to run it, what type of success can you have with a guy who isn't elite (Denard Robinson?). How, if at all, is this going to effect the upcoming NFL Draft? Are teams going to be making a play at guys in the early-mid rounds who fit this style a la Russell Wilson?

Are defenses going to have this figured out by next season, or is it going to stick around because it's entirely based off of reading the play?
