"Not ideal," Wayne recently told The Indianapolis Star. "You'd like to have had some time to get out there with him and work."
Reporters were treated to a taste of the on-field ability that compelled the Colts to select Luck with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. The Star marked him at 25-of-42 passing during Tuesday's 11-on-11 and seven-on-seven drills, noting his ability to weave the ball through traffic to Wayne and Austin Collie. Luck also missed on a handful of reads.
"You're talking about everything," Wayne told the newspaper. "Timing, just knowing each other. Everybody is going to run routes different. The quarterback has to get a feel for that. That takes time. As a receiver, you want to know, 'Is he going to throw a tight spiral or is he going to throw some ducks?' Just looking at him on TV, we know he can throw a college football. We don't know how good he can throw a pro football."
We expect Luck to "throw a pro football" without any issues come September. Ample time remains to develop a flow with Wayne and the offense. A little rust in June is expected.
