Guess it depends on what you think best prospect means. I see it as the player with the highest ceiling. The one that is gifted with all the physical tools to succeed. You seem to see it as the QB most likely to succeed, the one with the lowest odds at being a bust. Luck clearly doesn't possess off the chart measurable's, he wont throw 50 yard rockets or outrun defensive backs for TDs. But so far seems like he should be able to come in and be able to learn an NFL offense pretty quickly and wont make a ton of mistakes. Most likely he will be a Matt Ryan type of player.
I see it as the one most likely to be the better NFL player. I think Luck will be that guy. Luck has amazing accuracy and I think that is the one quality that sets the great ones apart from the others. Like Tom Brady for example. Doesnt WOW you with arm strength or footspeed ( Luck is MUCH more of an athlete) but has the accruacy to be great. That is how I see Andrew Luck.
Griffen will be the more exciting player to watch though. I think he is worth a top 10 and probably top 5-6 pick in this draft. In no way am I doubting the kid,
