    Barring career ending injury, Andrew Luck will have a long and generally succesful career as an NFL quarterback. He may even make a few Pro Bowls. However, it remains to be seen whether he can lead a team to an NFL championship. He did well at Stanford, but for all the hype he could not lead them to the BCS championship game. True, the academic standards for player athletes at Stanford may limit the football talent they can draw from high schools around the country, but the jury is still out as whether he can win the most imprtant games.

    I think that Andrew Luck will be a great NFL Quarterback. He did fantastic with sub-par talent  around him at Stanford. Everyone is talking about how well RG3 performed at the combine that it overshadows how great Luck performed. Not only is the guy extremely intelligent and can make all the throws with great accuracy and has good decision making ability,he ran a similar 40 yd dash time, and a BETTER vertical jump than Cam Newton in last years combine. His athletiscm is often overlooked, but he showed everyone what he is capable of at the combine. Now I'm not saying he should be the next Michael Vick, but moving around in the pocket and scrambling around and keeping plays alive is what the most successfull quarterbacks in the NFL do every game.

    He certainly has the physical and the mental tools required of a successful NFL QB.  Nobody knows for certain how he will adapt to the NFL but he does have a very good chance at being a winning QB.

    What is critical is where he goes in the draft.  If he goes to a team and is thrown into a starting role immediately he might struggle.  Not too many college QB's can take the reigns of an NFL team from day 1 and succeed.

    If he has time to absorb everything, before being thrown into games, there is no reason why he won't be good for many years.
