We’re only five months away from the 2012 NFL draft and the consensus continues to be that Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck will be the first overall pick.
Former Miami Dolphins Executive Vice President of Football OperationsBill Parcells has indicated that he’s not on the potential of Luck.
“Anyone who says that this guy is the hands down, Heisman Trophy winner or the first pick in the draft right now, I don’t think they know what they are talking about,” Parcells said. “There’s not been enough work done yet.”
I completely agree with Parcells.
In my opinion, it seems Luck’s draft stock has been going up over the past year because of ESPN constantly hyping him. When you listen to ESPN draft experts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay, they never have anything bad to say about him.
One scout I spoke with is concerned about Luck’s arm strength since he seems to prefer throwing the ball short rather then deep.
About a month ago, former NFL quarterback Phil Simms expressed his concern for his arm strength.
Luck could end up being a hall of fame quarterback, or he could end up being Ryan Leaf. Nothing is guaranteed when it comes to drafting a player in the NFL. Especially at the quarterback position.Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
