Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III no longer having dueling pro days

NFL scouts will be able to attend the pro days of both Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck and Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III after all.

Baylor’s pro day workout has been moved to March 21, one day before Stanford’s, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. Luck and Griffin were initially scheduled to have their pro days simultaneously.

The schedule change just makes sense: The point of pro days is to give prospects an opportunity to show their stuff to every scout or coach or personnel executive who’s interested, and if the top two quarterbacks (and maybe the top two overall prospects regardless of position) are working out on the same day, then scouts and coaches and personnel executives will have to choose to watch one or the other.

On the other hand, the Colts are the only one team that has to choose between Luck and Griffin. The Colts will draft one of them first overall as the heir apparent to Peyton Manning, and for other teams the biggest question is how much they’d be willing to give up in a trade to the Rams to move into the No. 2 slot to select the quarterback the Colts don’t take. So the Colts are the only team that will have a choice between Luck and Griffin. But now no team will have to choose between their pro days.

  1. Glad they have different pro days. What would we have ever done? Hopefully one day we have the technology to record such days and have some sort of device we can talk people when they are out of the homes and business.

  2. I think it will interesting to see how things turn out with the 2012 QB draft, to see if perhaps a late round QB could be the dude, and not the first 2 or 3 picks, another Tom Brady, I remember 1983 when the Dolphins drafted Danny boy, I thought that all the good ones were already pick, like Jim Kelly from the U, I didn’t know about Danny from Pitt, knew about Payton because I was living in Asheville, NC, so there is hope a late pick will surprise the so call experts.

  3. sounds like bobbyyyd has a little fear in his voice. Remember, the Colts will not draft EJ; then they did.

  4. The Colts will take Luck. But everyone seems convinced someone will trade with the Rams to get RGIII with the number two pick. I can’t imagine the Rams letting either Kalil or Blackmon get away. I think the Vikings are the team that will trade down. As much as they could use either Kalil or Blackmon (whoever the Rams don’t take), they have to many holes to fill and need the draft picks. If the Vike’s play their cards right, they should be able to drop down no more than to around the 15 pick and pick up a 2nd round pick in return.

  5. @ ammarradhi

    Teams might as well start scouting him and looking for tendencies and weaknesses now, huh!?!

  6. That’s good. At least RG3 will get to do SOMEthing before Luck.

    you mean besides winning the Heisman

  7. Aren’t there other players featured at these Colleges’ Pro Days? One would think the schools would want to help them be seen by not having a conflict in schedule.

  8. Why either of these 2 would lift one finger before the draft is beyond me.

    It can only *harm*

    Can not *help*

    They should refer scouts to the existing videotape and say “draft me or don’t, I really don’t care”

    That’s exactly right. Stanford has three first rounders with Luck, DeCastro, and Martin. And Fleener could go pretty high too. And I’d guess thats probably why Baylor was the one that changed their schedule…more scouts headed to Stanford.

  10. Thank goodness. At first I didn’t know how my life could go on, but now I can breath again.
