There is no way the Niners are going to be able to trade up for Andrew Luck. Even with these off games he is going to go #1 most likely. At worst, he would go top 3 and it would cost a kings ransom to go from where the Niners will be drafting to the top 3.

What's the magic number for the Colts to clinch Luck?
The magic number is still five at this point, as the Panthers are two games behind them, at 2-8, and have the worse opponent winning percentage, which is the tiebreaker. However, based on opponent's winning percentage right now, they hold a three game advantage over the 2-8 Vikings and 2-8 Rams.
I have a hard time seeing the Colts winning more than one game, but at the same time have a hard time seeing the Panthers losing out. More than likely, in about two weeks, this should pretty much be a lock.
He made a good point about Eli and Luck but I think Luck will be under more pressure with all the hype he's gotten over the last 2 years. I'm not saying Luck will bust but he may not ever win over everybody, he might be like LeBron great player but never does enough to satisfy anyone. He could also be like Alex Smith where he was part of an underdog(at one point) team experiences success then he starts from scratch with a team that is depleted or old and he's expected to turn it around alone. Lets see what happens because he's getting tons of hype in college but the pressure will really begin once he's drafted and signed.
