Got to say I haven’t seen much of Andrew Luck and what I have seen impressed with but the real steal of this years NFL Draft will be whoever trades up to get RG3 or Robert Griffin III to use his real name.
He is fighting to show what he can do and is the one that is trying to fight the “he cant read the play” tag he has been given. The reason that Luck will go to the colts as the number 1 pick is purely on name. In my view everybody says he is the next Payton Manning and the Colts liked having Payton for all those years. But RG3 have a different way of playing. They say he is a athlete playing Quarter Back but he is using the combine to prove what he is saying and that is he is a Quarter Back that is an athlete. He may not break records like Cam Newton but I think he will be a star.
The people that say he cant read an offence only assume he cant read an offence because he hasn’t have to do it in the collage. Baylor’s offensive Co-ordinator calls all the plays that they run but does that mean he hasn’t been watching defensive play or that he doesn’t watch tape. Im sure the lad has watched and learnt just as much as Luck he just hasn’t had to put it into play. I think this lad is a star in the making and he should turn out being a Vick or Newton but it may take a little while for him to being put up the kind of numbers Newton put up in his rookie season but well worth trading up for.
Im a little torn about the Ram’s trading their number 2 pick because im seeing the Rams play the Pats in London this year and I would have loved to have seen Justin Blackmon (they wouldn’t have gone for RG3 because they have Sam Bradford who they are paying a huge amount of money to and he hasn’t reached his promise yet) but this trade will probably take RG3 away from Cleveland Brown’s hands and that means we don’t have to play the guy twice every year until the guy retires. So who will trade up. There is only a few that I think will trade up. Washington Redskins and Cleveland Browns (yeah I know I said they wouldn’t get him but they could swap their number 4 pick and their 2nd round pick for the Ram’s number 2 pick and get RG3).
I know that Miami need a QB as do Jacksonville jags, Arizona Cardinals and maybe even Seattle Seahawks but I think they will fancy their chances on getting free agents Payton Manning or Matt Flynn. Payton might take his Talents to New York (Jets) as I expect Flynn to take his talents to South Beach (Miami). But Cleveland and Washington need a top young QB and both have good picks to offer St Louis and the Rams are only going to take the best deal. I think he will go to Washington if I was to guess as they seem to make offer anything to bring players in. I think the Browns will take another rubbish year and build by bringing in the running game of Trent Richardson in the Draft. This could give them a new dimension anyway but they NEED a QB more than most.
