Perhaps the biggest difference between the two is that every scout and his brother calls Luck the greatest QB prospect in history in terms of the mental part of playing the position. RGIII is obviously a bright guy and everybody says he's a quick study, but there is no guarantee he'll get to Luck's level in that regard.

Is King referring to no NFL QB has done this at the collegiate level, or no QB does this at the NFL level? It doesn't seem far fetched to think NFL QB's have multiple audibles at the line of scrimmage. It is impressive to think Luck has executed this type of system at Stanford. However, I feel any NFL top 15 QB should be able to do this. Moreover, I believe RG3 will be able to execute in a NFL system similar to top NFL QB's. I try to find an edge in Luck or Griffin, but I feel strongly that I will be happy with either one.

The assistant told PK that no quarterback in the NFL does it on every single play, which is what Luck did in college.

King must be talking about QBs over the last 20 years .... but regardless....

The one that the Skins draft ..... that's the one I'm for!

In fairness to King, it was the NFL assistant who made the point.

Not that it matters, really. The fact Luck is able to handle that much at an earlier stage in his career says it all.

I had never seen a college QB so in control and it made all the comparisons with Manning seem spot on. I think he's as prepared for success as just about any QB in recent memory and if somehow Indy passed on him then we'd be silly to be upset.

That being said, I am totally enamored with RGIII's potential and think he can be a superstar.

This is the best RGIII highlight footage I've found in regards to showcasing the deep ball.

Of course, it has cheesy overly-dramatic music, so feel free to mute it and run this in the background:

WARNING: still cheesy but fits the video very well


EDIT: Start the music, and by the time you start the highlight reel and mute it, it will be synced

From Greg Cosell and his study of Luck and RG3

Basically in summary we are going to be happy either way we pick, both excel at different things, both very good at most things.

RG's scramble at 1:22 is sick!!! I'm so pumped for this kid to be a Redskin.

Impressive article by someone respected as a talent evaluator. He makes it clear who he thinks is better when he says:

"The bottom line in my 5 game film evaluation: Griffin is a superior arm talent and natural passer than Luck. Will he be a better NFL quarterback? We’ll find out soon enough."
