Andrew Luck: Stanford (6-4, 235)
In my opinion he’s the best quarterback prospect in the nation. Luck is a smart, accurate kid who possesses good confidence in the pocket, is able to quickly decipher information and gets the ball out on time. Plus, he’s a good enough athlete to buy time for himself, has a strong enough arm to make all the throws and has experience in an NFL-style offense. Now, there is some concern about taking a redshirt sophomore quarterback in the first round as history shows there hasn’t been a ton of former RS sophomores who have had a ton of success (Mike Vick, Todd Marinovich and Tommy Maddox are three that come to mind). However, what Luck has going for him is that he’s mature beyond his years and he’s a levelheaded kid who loves the game and wants to get better. His age might be a bit of a concern to some, but he will end up starting two straight seasons, will come close to 700 throws by the end of the year and seems to possess that poise and “it” factor to make it as an upper echelon NFL starting quarterback.
