Born: Houston, Texas
Weight: 235 lbs.
Suitors: Indianapolis Colts
What they’re saying
Luck is the most polished quarterback prospect to enter the league since Peyton Manning. He elevated the Cardinal to the ranks of the elite with his play, and his ability to put the program on his back suggests he is capable of thriving as a franchise quarterback in the NFL. – Bucky Brooks.
With a 71.3 completion percentage, 10,043 total yards and 80 touchdown passes, this kid is the complete package. – Mike Mayock.
“This is Terry Bradshaw, the guys back in the 70s, who call their own plays at the line of scrimmage, which is unheard of nowadays with the complexity of the defenses. Here’s a guy that reads it and decides what to do. Other systems that other people have success in, I’m happy for them. But our guy does not turn to the sideline to look for the next play.” – David Shaw.
“I just don’t see big time NFL throws. I don’t care what anybody says. I’ve watched a lot of him. He never takes it and rips it in there. And you can say what you want but, man, you’ve got to be able to crease that ball every once in a while. There’s not a lot of rotation on the ball and there’s not a tremendous amount of power. Not that you need to have that power arm. I’m not saying you’ve got to have that exclusively but, man, it sure helps when you can do that because there’s four or five plays a game it is about arm strength.” – Phil Simms.
From everything I hear, Andrew Luck would be comfortable having Manning with the Colts. They have a good relationship.
