funny you mention the 1999 draft because luck reminds me greatly of the number 3 pick that year, Akili Smith.

That might be the worst comparison I've ever seen.

I've seen them. His pro highlights too (but they're much harder to find online these days).

Among the people comparing Luck to Peyton Manning you'll find professional NFL scouts, coaches and analysts who have been watching and/or working in the game for decades.

Among those comparing Luck to Akili Smith...

Well...nobody, except you (if you're serious).

Luck's college career arc reminds me of a Manning - but it's Eli.
