Andrew Luck, Quarterback – Indianapolis Colts
If there was a poster boy for collecting players to start NFL franchises, it would be Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. The now 24-year-old Luck has been in the collective consciousness since his freshman season at Stanford, and from the time that ESPN’s Mel Kiper anointed him as a future number one overall draft pick, Luck has been hearing a great deal of hype.
Fortunately for Indianapolis, he has been living up to the billing.
Andrew Luck’s second season saw more than a 500-yard dip in passing yardage, but he was much more efficient, completing more than 60% of his passes, and he managed to slice his interceptions in half from 18 to 9. The Colts, under Pep Hamilton, are using a fairly conservative offense that won’t keep Luck among the league leaders in passing yardage or touchdowns, but his skill set can be matched with any quarterback in the NFL, and with his incredibly young age and lack of injury history, he is probably the first pick in any “redraft” of the entire league.
