The first-overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft has capped off his rookie season by earning a place in the 2013 Pro Bowl. Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will replace New England Patriots signal-caller Tom Brady in the Pro Bowl, the team announced today.
Luck finished his rookie campaign with 4,374 passing yards, which was a rookie record.
The former Stanford Cardinal star also tallied six games with three hundred passing yards, which was also a rookie record.
Luck will join Seattle Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson in the game as the only first-year signal-callers. Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III was also voted to the game, but will miss the all-star contest while he is recovering from surgery to reconstruct his LCL and ACL.
It is great to see all of this young talent in the game and signals a bright future for the National Football League. If these young players can continue to improve and build on the momentum they built during their first year in the game the quarterback position will have some of the best talent in the league.
