Would Every Team In The Nfl Draft Andrew Luck?

Recommended Posts

So with all the bad luck and what not that the Colts are going through, almost everybody has decided that the first pick in the draft is the Colts' to use .. Some say draft Andrew Luck, some say trade the pick away (is there even anybody saying pick somebody else with that pick?) - and that got my thinking ..

If ANY other team in the league got the first overall pick, Packers, Lions, NE, Panthers, Saints, Rams or whatever other team with top QB's or top QB prospects, and they WERE NOT able to trade the pick away, is Andrew Luck then still the 1st overall selection?

Basically, my question is .. Is Andrew Luck that much better then all the other prospects, that even a team with young, top class QB's still pick him - and then proceed to do whatever they want with him/their original QB?

I rarely follow college football other than Youtube-clips of prospects mentioned here on this forum, so maybe I'm missing somebody else good enough to shake the belief that Andrew Luck is sure to be picked #1 ..

Right, you might see that.. I'm no expert (far from it!), but all the supposed experts are pretty sure this guy is the real deal, right? They get paid to evaluate college players, so you gotta think they at least know a little bit :) !

That's not the reason they wouldn't draft him. A lot of teams wouldn't draft him because they already have a good solid quarterback and other positions that need help. The Packers, Patriots, Ravens, Eagles, Falcons, Rams, Steelers, and some other teams wouldn't take him. Saying that he's a Matt Leinart is just an opinion, but look at Cam Newton, everyone said he was a bust and look at him now.

Those experts also said that leaf was more "nfl ready" than manning.And they also predicted that couch,carr,klingler,ware,a.smith,jim drunkenmiller,harrington and russell were can't miss stars.Don't put much stock into those self proclaimed "experts".

The jury is still out on cam newton.Yes,he's been good,so far,but its a long season.Besides,andy dalton may eventually surpass him later this year.

If a team that is comfortable with their QB has a chance to draft Luck, I'd say they would not do it. There is no guarantee that Luck will become a superstar, he has the talent, but why would a team with a good QB take a risk on an unproven QB. Taking Luck would probably cause more disruption in the team. Football is perhaps the one sport where your picks must address your team needs. You can't really have two great QBs, it does not work out as running an offense with two QBs leads to more problems than solutions and that QB is not going to want to play another position unlike what you can have in another sport.

It all comes down to does the team with the draft pick need a QB.

Cam Newton won't see what it's really like until next year when teams have film on him, and a full off-season to prepare for a season. It's too early to know at this point. As someone else pointed out, Dalton is looking like a better pure QB than Newton anyway, and he was drafted much lower.

On topic: Luck will be the #1 overall pick, and no, teams with a good QB wouldn't take him. That's ridiculous. It's not like HB, DT, etc., where you need a healthy rotation of the same types of players. You don't pay for two premium QB's on the same team for any length of time. Not 4 years, not 1 year, not 3 games.

He is the most sure thing in the past draft in years at half-cost of what a QB should be making with the rookie wage implemented. he is a no-brainer #1 pick (value pick at that), even if you already have a QB he is like a glowing red-light special. You TAKE him, yes, every team would take him given the opportunity of the #1 pick. Now how they deal with keeping him or trading him is another issue.

Everyones a critic.........but I got to agree with banned. We can trade back and get more draft picks so polian can work his magic. Its not like i dont like Luck but i think the 1st or 2nd overall pick can get us probably two 2nd and 3rd round picks. Im just saying no all of our problems are to Painter.

    • I saw a good comment somebody made on YouTube They mentioned how Jacoby has shown elite traits a few times this year. Just needs to show more of it on a consistent basis. I can’t wait to get all the WR back and see what happens.  We seen a couple of deep tries Sunday which was nice. Even if you don’t connect it still makes the other team team think about it.
    • Houston's standard MO is to double the top WR/TE threat. And they're so bad we should have plenty of options regardless if TY is back or not. Of course we want TY to play, but there should be plenty of folks open regardless.
    • @Superman I see you asked for evidence of turf being a factor. I remember posting some research on it here a while ago but I cannot find it now... those posts might be archived or something. From what I remember there are several different types of artificial turf that is used in the league + the natural grass. The type of artificial turf we have is the worst for injuries with natural grass being the safest. That's not to say that any particular injury this year is attributable to the turf, but to me it's kind of obvious that different surfaces with different properties will lead to different health results over long term, big samples. I will try to find it again later but I can't promise I will be able to.    At some point I also posted about some research that tried to separate different factors for injuries outside of luck (turf, coaching, etc.) but my memories are not very fresh on this one so I cannot remember what that one found out... 
    • And the Packers as far as Rodgers takes them, and the Chiefs as far as Mahomes takes them, and the Colts as far as Brissett takes them, as we saw when Hoyer was forced to play...   You can use that narrative with every team. 
    • I really feel good about this game. Houston will be angry after losing so bad on Sunday. This will cause them to commit more penalties. Watt being out is going to be a real issue so I expect we will win a close game  14-10 Colts
