    Andrew Luck

    I guess he didn't want to go to Carolina.

    Leinart may have been the #1 pick and after staying another season, he went #10 overall.

    Jake Locker may have been the #1 pick last year and after staying another season, some people have him
    going in the 2nd round.

    With a rookie salary cap on the horizon, this is a risky move.

    Just wanted to say that. They were really getting agitated about getting him, now they will keep the Clausen experiment going I suppose. I donĀ“t like him.

    Maybe Andrew Luck really doesn't want to play for Carolina.

    Maybe he felt the possibility of a lockout and no NFL games was not worth the risk of not being able to play football for a year.

    It worked out well for Jake Locker and Matt Leinhart.

    Also means one less player to be pushed down the board to New England. :(

    Re: What the LUCK!

    Naaaahhh...just wait until ESPN has completed their full dose of hype for the next guy. Every year it's a quarterback who is in a completely different class than everyone else. Three months ago, Luck was a mid-first to early-second round pick and Locker was the best prospect since John Elway. In mid-November, it was Mallett. By April, it will be either Newton, Gabbert, or some late bloomer like Cutler or Flacco, who suddenly cannot possibly be passed on.

    Re: What the LUCK!

    I imagine this will turn Cam Newton into the flavor of the month, as long as he has a good game vs. Oregon.

    Labor dispute, wanting to get his degree...yeah, I can't blame him for staying.

    More like 50 million. If you are the #1 pick, I'm not sure how you can decide to stay in school and risk another year. All it takes is someone rolling up on your knee, or simply a slight decline. Locker was going top 5 last year. This year I'm not even sure he'll go in the first round.

    I know this has been pointed out before, but Schefter reminds via Twitter:

    "Had Peyton Manning come out early he would have been a NY Jet. Instead returned to school, became a Colt. 1 decision, 2 franchises affected"

    Dumbest decision ever

    If a rookie cap comes into play or he gets hurt he has blown a ridiculous opporunity
