    I mean I know everybody is convinced that Andrew Luck is the greatest prospect in years, but I could see them making a pretty solid argument for it.

    When Mario Williams went #1 overall, everyone thought it was a foregone conclusion that Reggie would be the #1 pick overall until a few days before the draft. But neither of those two are QB's.

    Right but don't forget hometown hero Vince Young was in the mix too, some even said Matt Leinhart was a can't miss.

    Ultimately i think both these quarterbacks are gems, there won't be a Manning/ leaf scenario or the even more atrocious Carr/ Harrington one.

    Just wait till tomorrow night after seeing Luck light it up at his pro day in an ultra controlled environment like RG3 had and this talk will die back a little bit.

    It is kind of funny though that after the past month so many Redskins fans have bought into the idea of RG3 that if he were to go at #1 and Luck falls to #2 there would be a slight sense of disappointment. I know it sounds kind of ridiculous but everyone has become sold on the idea that as far as offensive schemes go RG3 is the best possible fit for the Redskins. It may be true, time will tell.

    There is no way, the Colts have visions of Manning II and Luck was hand delivered.

    Not saying he's that clear cut better but for the Colts, the image and what they do the answer is not any more simple. They were simply there doing their homework and hoping to drive someone in a frenzy in hopes another team will mortgage their next 2 years in draft picks.

    While I think Griffin may turn out to be the more difficult QB to defend, I think Luck is the least risk. I suspect Griffin will do very well but we don't know that. Luck could fail too but he seems to have all the tools including the mental part. Plus the Colts seem to already have their mind made up..

    Maybe Washington will make them an offer they can't refuse although not sure they have any ammo to do so.

    If Hodge says RG3....then the decison on who to take is simple.....go with Luck. Hodge is clueless!

    In my opinion I think Andrew Luck will have the most success in the NFL. 3 reasons why.

    1: The Size, now i know 2 inches isnt much of a difference, but in the NFL every inch can help sling it over those big lineman with more ease power and most of all Accuracy.

    2: Experience, no im not talking about NFL experience im talking about the Pro style offense and getting a little feel for the system. now the Colts system without a doubt will be way differents and complex but he has some feel for it.

    3: this reason is really just strengthening the 2nd reason... he can check in and out of plays based on the defense unlike others who check by coach or prematured audibles and really knows how to manipulate a defense. odds are he definately wont be doing that near as easy as he did in college but with
    good coaching and a few seasons under his belt he will be an elite QB i think


    The fact that Luck has done it for an extended period of time, has the prototypical body, an NFL pedigree, played in a pro-style offense? Yeah, that definitely sounds like the race card to me. Keep being a clown, it suits you well!


    what ever you want to believe

    Tony Dorsett (1), Jim Plunkett (2), Marcus Allen (1), Desmond Howard (1), Charles Woodson (1), and Reggie Bush (1) would all like a word with you. 3 of them have been Super Bowl MVPs.

    Of course RG3 looked awesome, everything he did was entirely scripted. He still doesn't take the first pick though.

    Guys consider this though about Luck, his forty time was almost identical to Cam Newton's forty time at the Combine. Luck also had a better vertical too so don't count out Luck's athletic ability.

    Why would they? I haven't made any false statements about them like you did about those other Heisman winners?

    No one is, i think both QB's will be great, but Luck is no longer thought of as the slam dunk choice.

    In other words if RG3 was picked first instead of second it wouldn't be a great surprise nor groaned about.

    He said QBs but to be fair he left off Plunkett and you had him on your list. However the others you listed were not Heisman Winning QBs who went on to win a superbowl.

    Was it RGIII's pro day or was it the pro day for the Baylor Players?

    I could see the Colts having Luck locked up and now looking for players later in the draft...say a Blake to replace a departing Saturday at center or a Kendall Wright at WR to replace Garcon should Wright fall out of the first.
