Consensus among coaches, execs: Luck should go No. 1

There has been a groundswell of support in recent weeks for the Colts to at least consider Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III with the draft’s No. 1 overall pick. Many of Griffin’s backers point to game tape that is superior to Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck’s.

A perfect eight-of-eight NFL coaches and executives polled Tuesday by Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, however, believe Luck should be the pick. Largely because he is “safer.”

Luck is just a safer pick,” one AFC executive told Cole. “They are both productive, high-quality kids from great families. You can’t go wrong with either one. But if you’re asking me about whom to take, I have to go with Luck, especially if you’re Indianapolis after what they just had with Peyton [Manning] and the awful season they went through.

“Get a guy who you know can play right away. At worst, Luck is going to be a good player who can come in and run the offense from Day One.”

One AFC coach cited Luck’s pro readiness — the fact that he’s played in a pro-style offense whereas Griffin comes from a shotgun spread.

“Just think about it this way,” said the coach. “Griffin just graduated with honors. Luck is in his first year of medical school. That’s what we’re talking about.”

Toward the end of Cole’s story, he does acknowledge that “none” of the eight club officials polled said they’d be shocked if the Colts made Griffin the top pick in the draft.

    i don’t care what they all want to say luck will be the first player drafted this year. both will be great imo

    Safe Pick??? Well, that’s exciting.

  3. opinevain says: Mar 27, 2012 10:59 PM

    Luck is a safe pick? How and why? Because he’s been projected to go #1 for two years now? The nerve of them to mention Luck’s first year in Medical school is pathetic.

  4. randallflagg52 says: Mar 27, 2012 11:02 PM

    Yeah because nothing yells “I’m a winner!” than going through your entire collegeiate career with a neck beard…

    I’m no scout but Griffen looks like the better player to me, and I’m only talking about their QB skills. Griffen’s scrambling ability puts him that much higher IMO.

    Kind of surprised The Colts allowed Luck to have his Pro-Day, and will work him out in Indy…The Risk of injury continues.

    You’d think if he was the guy, that they would have signed him and moved forward…

    Luck/RG3 will suck playing for the Colts. RG3 adds spark now and Luck adds stability for the future, both will be good QB’s just not playing for the COLTS.

  9. godofwine330 says: Mar 27, 2012 11:18 PM

    Seattle drafted a linebacker #4 a few years back because he was the safest pick…and he is no longer on the team. You never pick linebackers in the top 5 picks in the draft from Wake Forest.

    Safe is what umpires call in baseball. Safe isn’t what you call an NFL draft pick.

    Well, sometimes the “safe pick” blows up in your face. JaMarcus Russell was a consensus #1 pick when he was drafted. The Rams had also had a streak of drafting “safe picks” like Jason Smith and all the other mediocre players they have drafted relatively recently. I think Luck is more polished and ready to start right away.

    But 3 years from now I think RG3 will be a better player (assuming he develops in the right system). He’s got all the tools to succeed and be an all-time great QB in this league. I love RG3 on the field and his attitude off the field, and he’ll be out to prove himself to be better than Luck. I’m just sad he has to play in Washington.

  17. thejuddstir says: Mar 27, 2012 11:32 PM

    Luck is the safer pick. Think of the many other athletic QB’s who played in the shotgun offense (J. Russell, Vince Young, M. Vick, Josh Freeman, Tavaris Jackson, etc. etc.) and never really adjusted to the pro-set. I get it that RG3 can run like a deer, throw it a mile, etc. but playing under center and reading defenses has nothing to do with “athletic ability”.

  18. brenenostler says: Mar 27, 2012 11:32 PM

    RG III = Jamarcus Russell. Buyer beware.

  23. redstar504 says: Mar 27, 2012 11:50 PM

    Why knock Griffen because he played a shotgun spread. The Saints along with a dozen or so other teams all run spread offences, more or less all under center vs. shotgun but they are still spread offences. I just don’t see how that should be a knock on RG3. I am not saying I would take him over Luck but I don’t see how you knock a guy for that in today’s game.

  24. nomesayin says: Mar 27, 2012 11:54 PM

    Hmmmm. The Colts have a horseshoe on their helmet. The guy’s name is “Luck”.

    Duh

  25. soundslikehail says: Mar 27, 2012 11:55 PM

    as a skins fan, I prefer the colts to take luck. all the game tapes are on YouTube. griffin looks spectacular, luck looks good. obviously the game changes a lot when the weakest NFL link in a defense would be a college standout.

    here is why I do agree luck is a safer bet: injury. luck has 35 pounds on griffin and seems plain thicker. griffin has had a torn acl, and by the game tapes, possibly some concussions.

    Brian Regan once said: “take luck! if you have luck, take it.” take care, good luck

  26. andyreidisfat says: Mar 28, 2012 12:04 AM

    First luck is by far the better player. Rg3 could be really good too but will probably just get killed when he goes to the skins.

    Second, we need to stop saying nfl teams don’t run a shotgun spread offense. The eagles, packers, patriots, saints all run some form of it, sure they may take a few more snaps from under center, but not many more. The eagles since Vick came on board run almost exclusively from the gun and they even had the number 2 rusher in the nfl.

    The spread gun can and is run in the nfl, heck the jets will be running the spread option by game 2 when tebow takes over as starter

    I am a Washington Redskin fan (hate the Giants anytime, anywhere) and love the excitement of RGIII potentially coming to D.C. but…..Andrew Luck might seem boring compared to the guy whose nickname sounds like a cool sports car yet the guy is pro-set ready.

    Well, sometimes the “safe pick” blows up in your face. JaMarcus Russell was a consensus #1 pick when he was drafted. The Rams had also had a streak of drafting “safe picks” like Jason Smith and all the other mediocre players they have drafted relatively recently. I think Luck is more polished and ready to start right away.
    _______
    Sorry, to aggressively burst your chops here bro, but none of those picks were actually safe. There was nothing concensus at all about JaMarcus Russell. Your getting confused because everyone knew he would be the #1 pick after Al Davis went bananas overseeing Captain Sizzurp throw a an 80 yard field goal from his knees. The thought all year, and even right up to the combine was that Brady Quinn would be the #1 pick. Russell only entered the conversation when the Raiders landed the number one spot.

    Far from being a “safe” pick, Russell was a “fast riser”: a guy who shoots up the boards in the weeks leading up to the draft, and have amazingly high bust rates. Other “fast risers” include Devin Thomas, kicked off the Redskins for telling Shanahan that he (Thomas) didn’t need to work hard in practice because if football didn’t work out for him he could always go into male modeling. Another notable “fast riser” is Jason Smith, the next guy I’m going to bust your chops about. At no point was Smith considered a safe pick. He was considered a major boom or bust prospect all year and was graded an inferior tackle to Andre Smith, Eugene Monroe, and Michael Oher until very shortly before the draft, at which point he suddenly became a big deal, was taken at #2 overall, and became a colossal bust.

    Luck is the exact opposite of a fast riser, having maintained his position on top of everyone’s draft boards for two years. Therefore, if it’s safe to call anyone a safe pick, I think it’s Andrew Luck. To stop busting your chops for a minute I do think Griffin has a higher ceiling than Luck, it’s just difficult to make the case that there’s less potential for Luck to bust than for Griffin.

    How about
    Tiebreaker: Andrew Luck spent an extra year mooching off mommy and daddy to hang out in college and butter co-eds’ muffins. Griffin is from a military family and graduated high school and college a year early.

    Also, what kind of goofy-looking, neckbeard-having church do you go to?

    P.S. not that it really matters (actually it probably does to you) but Griffin actually goes to church, Luck does not. Also Griffin is engaged, Luck is not.

    Mike Mayock once said, ” JaMarcus Russell’s pro day was the greatest he’d ever seen” How’d that experiment work out? Anyone who knows anything about football knows that a player coming from a pro style offense will do better than a player coming from any other offense especially a QB. I don’t care how gifted Griffin is, You are a complete idiot if you don’t take Luck # 1. Could Griffin turn out alright, maybe but I would’nt bet the bank on it. Last I checked JaMarcus Russell set the Raiders back 3 years at the QB postion because some idiot fell in love with upside/intangibles. A safe pick typically equals a smart pick.

  40. sasquash20 says: Mar 28, 2012 1:35 AM

    Its hard not to like both of these kids. But I would take Luck because he appears to be more traditional drop back pro style QB. Part of that for me as a Eagles fan is that I’m tired of scrambling QBs that can make plays with their feet. I want a QB that can effectively run an offense and read a defense. A QB who just knows where to go with the ball. That being said RG3 is way more accurate then most scrambling QBs, and appears by all accounts to be very intelligent. Not much more you could really ask for. It sucks the Redskins get either one of these guys.

Say what you want about RGIII on paper talking “Football facts” he is a “QB” not a “Runner” his PASSING stats are as good as Lucks and better in some areas (Total Passing Yards)..its called Google. For the Guy who ran off a list of current Black QBs and say they have struggled they don’t even come close in terms of his passing ability, then do you really want a list of failed white QBs like it matters. Then for the idiot who said how many “Athletic QBs are in the HOF Steve Young, John Elway, Aaron Rodgers and Roger Staubach were and are Athletic QBs who are in and will go to the NFL HOF. Come on give me break.

  47. descendency says: Mar 28, 2012 3:07 AM

    “Safer” is the kiss of death of a future NFL career. The “safer” guy almost never becomes much more than average.

    One such example:

    The safest player in the 2009 draft was Wake Forest Linebacker Aaron Curry. He was considered a steal at #4 overall because he was the safest prospect. 2 years later, he was traded by the Seahawks for not being anything better than a backup with a high salary. The compensation was a 2012 7th and a 2013 conditional, which will never amount to anything close to the 4th overall pick.

    And there are so many more. Safe prospects almost never become anything. I wouldn’t characterize Luck as “safe”. I’d characterize him as “special” and say that the unmeasurable tools are what separate Luck from RG3.

  48. hmbutter49 says: Mar 28, 2012 3:15 AM

    luck is better than griffin, and its not even close. luck will be a top 10 quarterback next year, griffin will be learning how to take snaps from center. being an nfl quarterback is so much more than arm strength and sprint speed, and luck is better in every area but those two. mark my words, luck will be a multiple time MVP, and this whole conversation will seem idiotic.

  49. zn0rseman says: Mar 28, 2012 4:03 AM

    As I said before, what has Robert Griffin proven at Baylor? Great arm, great athleticism… sure. But I’ve seen that same statement made about a tons of other spread system/running QB’s in the past, and almost none of those worked out. The real question to mep is, does he have the quick decision making skills to excell at the next level. Luck has shown the aptitude for that during his college career. Has Griffin? Sure, he looks great in shorts throwing scripted passes at his pro day. Yeah, he looks fast at the combine. And yeah, he put up some highlight reel footage for ESPN (a sports media organization that is very desirous that black QBs do well) with a spread system against weak defenses. The NFL requires much more from a QB and I guess I just don’t see how anyone could truly consider taking an unproven guy like Griffin over a guy who had the college accolades that Luck has. That just doesn’t make sense unless the interest of ownership is not to win football games as much as taking advantage of the Griffin hype machine in the media to sell tickets.

    I ask myself this, if I close my eyes and see Luck as black and Griffin as white would my decision be the same…

    The strange thing about this is all the reports we have recently heard about grade Griffin higher. That fact that RGIII came from nothing and Luck has had every opportunity afforded to him by way of his father (a former NFL QB and WVU Athletic Director) makes me think Griffin has a much higher ceiling where Luck is probably most ready to play as he has been groomed his entire life. I would make my pick based on which type of player I value more.

  58. qdog112 says: Mar 28, 2012 7:56 AM

    Football skills aside, where RGIII has a slight edge on Luck in most categories, of course Luck is the “safer pick”. After all, RGIII could be the victim of a drive by or worse yet get caught walking from the store in the wrong gated community. Ya gotta admit, he does look suspicious. What if he took a jog and wore a hoodie?

  59. alewatcher says: Mar 28, 2012 8:04 AM

  60. bigbalz says: Mar 28, 2012 8:04 AM

    Forget Luck being the “safer” pick, he is just the better pick. Call it racism or any other pathetic excuse that will come up but Luck is just the better QB with a longer track record. Plain and simple!

  61. cowboyhater says: Mar 28, 2012 8:37 AM

    Colt’s, please keep believing the hype and pick RG3. Shanahan would be ecstatic to get the opportunity to mentor Luck. This guy is a sure can’t miss. It’s funny that all of sudden after 2 years, that Luck has suddenly become this underwhelming QB compared to RG3. Now we’re seeing Tannehill get some press. This is great. Luck will continue to fly under the radar (if that’s possible) and slide to the skins at the 2 spot. Come on Irsay, follow your irrational heart and drive your moving van to RG3′s home and drive him to your Colt’s facility.

  62. sylar1888 says: Mar 28, 2012 8:42 AM

    I also believe Luck is the safer pick as well. For the reasons mentioned in the above article and for this one simple reason. Luck has the build of a NFL QB. RG3 is built like Michael Vick in that if he takes to many hits at the NFL level, you’ll only see him twelve games per year on average. No question about it!

    This alone is a ridiculous statement. So you’re saying that if someone was raised in a privileged environment, they would not be as motivated to do great things in the NFL? Why don’t you ask Peyton Manning if this theory holds true. Last time I checked, he sure seemed to be a pretty motivated QB to me. You’re an idiot!!

  64. bigtimeeaglesfan says: Mar 28, 2012 9:57 AM

    I really like both QB’s. Both are intelligent kids with a lot of physical talent. As an Eagles fan, I would have given just as much as Washington did for the rights to RGIII. That said, I still think that Luck is the choice. If RGIII is a potential superstar, I think Luck is a potential generational talent.

    In the discussion of the two, I think Luck’s assets get a little short-changed. He really seems to have a knack of reading the defense as the play unfolds that’s a notch above anyone that I’ve seen in the college game. He can make all of the throws and is sufficiently mobile to avoid the rush, even if he’s not RGIII. He provided what I consider the best moment in college football this year in the Southern Cal game. Right after he made a bone-headed throw with about 4 minutes to play that put his team behind, he willed his team down the field to tie and take the game to OT in what I think was the most impressive drive of the year. His poise stood out. That’s what I think will make him a great pro.

    One thing that never seems to get mentioned is that I think the Stanford coach’s run first approach held his numbers back a bit. There are a lot of coaches that would have rode that horse until it dropped and thrown on most downs. Under someone else, he probably would have had more yards, TD’s and admittedly, more INT’s. I’m guessing that he could have had the best stats in CF. Like I said, this is not at all a putdown of RGIII because I think he has a chance to be special as well.

    Luck is not in medical school. He is an architecture major and is taking summer classes to finish his undergrad. This “scout” isn’t very good at his job…

    Yep, it’s looking more and more to me like Clots will go Griffin.

    Beyond the ‘Skins giving up a little too much to get him, Luck will be a great addition.
