Prospect of the Week: Andrew Luck

After going back and forth with the idea, I’ve decided for a series of featuring a different NFL prospect each week and what attributes he poses. Especially since today marks the start of the NFL Combine. Each week until the NFL Draft, beginning April 26th and ending April 28th, there will be a different prospect featured and after the draft, I’ll feature a prospect that was either drafted or not drafted, why or why not. Just to keep it interesting. So for this week I’ve decided to start it off with none other than Stanford quarterback, Andrew Luck.

Height: 6’4

Weight: 235lbs

College: Stanford

40 Time: 4.73

Luck is projected to go in the first round and possibly be the first quarterback taken, with some stiff competition from Robert Griffith, III. Last season for the Cardinals Luck completed 288 passes with 404 attempts for 3,517 yards and a passer rating of 118.0. Luck has the potential to be a great started in the league for any team in need of a quarterback like Indianapolis (possibly), Cleveland, Washington, Kansas City, and Seattle just to name a few. He has great passing ability and accuracy, but he’s not so accurate outside the pocket. Pocket precision for Luck is definitely a plus as well as the ability read defenses. This being one of the key reasons Luck stands out from the rest.

    I would also include San Francisco in the list of teams in need of a quarterback. Alex Smith had his best year under Jim Harbaugh last season, but I still saw quite a few things that worry me with Smith.
    Quarterback isn’t the most vital position the Niners need, but eventually they will need someone else.
