Scouting The Cardinal: Andrew Luck
40 YD: 4.75
Prototype size for the position. Big league arm strength. Outstanding football intelligence. Real student of the game. Excellent overall work ethic and intangibles. Can make all the necessary throws. Very good accuracy both short and deep. Elusive in the pocket with very good run skill for a big QB. Can ad lib and make plays outside the pocket. Accurate passer.
Not many. He will force some throws into double coverage more than he should. Has a slight hitch in his delivery.
Has all the necessary ingredients to be a future NFL star. Fun to watch. Has the size and arm strength as well as major intangibles. His weaknesses can be cleaned up, like forcing some throws under pressure. The son of former Rhodes Scholar and NFL QB Oliver Luck, this kid was born to play QB and has really come into his own under the tutelage of top-notch Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh.
