Mayock's take: "This kid is an amazing athlete. There's no question that the Colts have themselves a franchise quarterback they can rely on for years and years to come."

Overview

Even with the late rise of Heisman Trophy-winning QB Robert Griffin III, Luck is considered one of the surest prospects in the past decade. He is a prototypical pro-style quarterback who can make all the line calls, formation shifts, pass drops, and throws necessary to be successful at the next level. He will likely be the top pick overall and start immediately.

Analysis

Strengths

Luck's intangibles are what set him apart from other talented quarterbacks. He is tough, durable and willing to step into a throw with oncoming rushers breathing down his neck. He has a deliberate set-up with no wasted motions and has developed and the ability to play from many different looks at Stanford. Luck has the size to take a hit, and the athletic ability to get outside and make plays with his feet. On the move, he makes his second and third reads with ease. He has a very compact and quick release, and can fire it out to the flats with ease off one-step drops. The most intriguing aspect of Luck's career was the scant number of mistakes he made. He rarely forces a ball into tight coverage. He won't make any mistakes off the field, either. He is a strong, natural, competitive, athletic quarterback.

Weaknesses

There are no glaring weaknesses in Luck's play, and while some could argue he isn't the athlete that RG3 is, that is simply not his game. He displays the athleticism necessary to excel as a pocket passer. There are times when Luck second-guessed passes and simply didn't see a breaking corner coming from another zone, such as the play that almost got Stanford beat toward the end of a high-energy USC game, but for the most part Luck works to identify and improve on his weaknesses.
