While Washington has two mid round prospects on their O-line. Yah Stanford's O-line is sooo much better when Washington only gave up 3 more sacks. And Chris Polk is averaging 5.5 yards behind Washington's O-line, while Stefan Taylor is only averaging 4.9. Some of you make it sound as if Washington has a bad OL or something.
Lets also keep in mind that Stanford's defense is horrible and doesn't give that much help to Luck either.
washington got mid-round prospects in their o-line? walterfootball says no and cbs mention seniors only. could u give me your source plz.

I "learned reading" years ago, thank you. I suggest you look at the numbers and realize what you're saying is asinine. Locker is digressing in his new offensive style. Which style do you suggest he WOULD work in? And Luck hardly struggled for a first year quarterback in a pro style offense, without a ton of help. The talent at Stanford is not amazing. Name a draftable player on their offense other than Luck.
Colt McCoy benefited from a gimmicky, spread-option offense. Andrew Luck is in a pro style WCO, often taking snaps under center (which he does very well). And plus, Colt McCoy had a GREAT D, Earl Thomas, Sergio Kindle, Lamar Houston and other younger prospects who WILL get drafted, not to mention Jordan Shipley (great slot receiver), Adam Ulatoski (who's not great ,but was draftable and better than the guys at Stanford) and plus underclassmen who have more talent than Stanford can dream of. I could be wrong but I can't see anyone else on Stanford who will be anything but a late round-udfa.
Colt McCoy benefitted greatly from his scheme and the talent around him. The talent around Andrew Luck benefits greatly from his skill as a QB. Big difference there buddy.
