The Andrew Luck sweepstakes could become very interesting depending on how things unfold towards the end of this season. A number of teams have invested in young and supposedly franchise QB's in recent years. The only team with a strong chance of landing that pick that would have no drama is Miami.
Like many, I cannot get too hard on Dungy. If you're thinking smart business, you think long term and an Andrew Luck with 15+ years of runway on him is more valuable than a Peyton Manning and a potentially injury plagued 3-4 years. Luck's hype alone with draw fans. In Luck, you bridge to the face of the next generation of that franchise and that is something you may have to do earlier rather than later to get a can't miss, even if it is a tad premature. It's the PR
side that is going to get interesting. Look at the downside here - if they pass, then they could be scrambling for reaches for years and we all know what busting on a first round QB impact has on a franchise. Although maybe not quite as tough a hit with the new rookie caps.
St. Louis is also an interesting situation - they are a bad football team/banged up. What happens if they land that pick? Granted they have Bradford, but how about if that franchise sees Luck as an A+ to Bradford's A-? Bradford has also had some injury issues that you have to think about. Playing in the NFC West will likely give them a couple wins.
I still think this one is between Miami and Indy. Miami plays in a division where they likely can't win a game, here especially without Henne. They also have a lame duck coach. I'm hoping they don't land the pick, number one because it brings Luck to the division, number 2 because there is not much of a storyline. I want to see what teams do if it's not a complete logical pick and if they trade out, how many picks it takes.
