Remaining Schedules for Teams in the Andrew Luck Sweepstakes

Based on these schedules, us and the Cardinals have the easiest remaining schedules, and I find it very difficult to see a game that Carolina will win -- they MIGHT beat Arizona, but that's it.

So, Carolina will probably have the #1 pick. Buffalo plays a bunch of tough games, but could win 1 - 3 games against MIN, CLE, and MIA.

ARI:
SF
STL
DEN
@CAR
DAL
@SF

Buf:
PIT
@MIN
CLE
@MIA
NE
@NYJ

CAR:
@CLE
@SEA
ATL
ARI
@PIT

CIN:
NO
@PIT
CLE
SD
@BAL

CLE:

@MIA
@BUF
@CIN
BAL
PIT

DEN:
STL
@KC
@ARI
@OAK
HOU
SD

DET:
CHI
GB
@TB
@MIA
MIN

MIN:
@WAS
BUF
NYG
CHI
@PHI
@DET

SF:
@ARI
@GB
SEA
@SD
@STL

This is good. But you can remove Denver (Tebow, Orton) and Detroit (Stafford) from this list. Even if they had the #1 overall they wouldn't take Luck.

I could, but they could trade the pick. Would you be shocked if a team like Seattle or Tennessee traded away a ton in order to get luck?
awesome Nick, great reference.

Thanks.

Based on strength of schedule, this is my prediction for order of finish -- we can trade up with Carolina...they need to rebuild their roster after throwing away so many picks on trades (they don't have a #2 this year). So, we package the #8 and our second rounder and our #1 in 2012 to move up. That's a lot of value. If Clausen doesn't improve in year two, they take a QB in 2012 (Barkley, Prior, Gabbert, Landry Jones, etc.). If Clausen plays well, they continue to build a dominant defense under Cowher.

1. CAR
2. BUF
3. CIN

5. CLE
6. ARI

8. SF
9. MIN
10. STL
How do you know he is coming pro? He's a sophmore on eligibility.

1. The way he's talked about it in interviews

2. The fact that Jake Locker lost $50 million dollars by staying in college

3. Jim Harbaugh is probably gone.

He's a redshirt sophmore, which means he's put in his 3 years and is eligible for NFL Draft.

Only way he comes out is if Harbaugh leaves Stanford, which could happen with a few big name college jobs (Michigan, Miami) and NFL jobs (CAR, DAL, SF, JAC & HOU[if they dont make playoffs]).

If Harbaugh stays, Luck will stay and that team will be thrown in with Ohio State, Oregon, Alabama, Oklahoma, and VaTech for teams in the NC talk for 2011.

I like Oklahoma's chances in 2011. Oregon and Oklahoma should enter 2011 as 1-2 in the polls.

agreed 100%, I can see us trying our damnest to get to 1 to get Luck if he comes out.

A trade is always possible, you're right. But yes, I would be shocked.

Luck would be the most undisputed #1 prospect in the last decade. So it would take a whole lot more than what the draft value chart says to get him. That would likely mean 2 firsts, a second and a player. Too much for a mediocre/poor team like the Seahawks or Titans. They, like us, have needs almost everywhere.

Carolina and Buffalo have to replenish a lot of positions -- they need to trade down. They two teams (probably) picking in the Top 10 that have only 1 or 2 needs are the Niners and Arizona. I feel Arizona may make a move on a Quarterback as well...but they may be content with Mallett.

Yep -- Vick was undisputed as well...San Diego just wagered that they had more than one need.

I agree, Oklahoma has much of their offense coming back and they always have a good defense. Only worry is the loss of Murray as their game-changer.

If Luck and Harbaugh stay though, the OL is all returning, 3-4 decent RBs in the stable, I think Baldwin is coming back, got two blue-chip freshman at WR they've been grooming as redshirts, and their defense would only have to worry about replacing 1-2 secondary players, so they will definitely be ranked top 10 as well.
