I believe the Colts are making a mistake. Luck is good and NFL ready week 1. But the next Elway or Manning? I just don't see it. He's a good QB without a terrific ceiling..
Griffin is the complete package. He throws the ball with more accuracy short, medium, long, moves around more effectively, throws the ball harder, has quicker footwork and is quicker overall. Perhaps the smartest player in the draft too. For all the Redskins gave it will end up looking like a small price to pay.
That's not true. His 40 time was still in the 4.6 range, similar to Cam Newton. Trent Dilfer's worked out with Luck and said his arm is strong enough to hit the cross bars on the field goal from 70 yards out. Luck's intellectually beyond any rookie QB potentially ever, he can already take 3 plays at the line of scrimmage and call one. That's in a PRO STYLE offense. His footwork is already fantastic, and his throwing motion is really good. His accuracy is really good. I don't see how you can say RG3 throws the ball with more accuracy short, medium, and long. RG3's footwork is better? Did you even watch Luck play? RG3 played in a spread offense, Luck played in a pro style O all 3 years. Luck is smarter than RG3, atleast on the field. RG3 is a really good prospect but there's a reason Luck is going to be taken number 1.
BTW The only reason Griffin's stats are better than Luck's is because he had Kendall Wright as a WR and played in a spread offense. Luck could've easily done the same things that Griffin did IMO. Luck played in a pro style O and took Stanford to almost win a national championship even without Harbaugh as coach. That takes skills.
