A lot is expected of a top-10 draft pick, no matter their position. See who will do what once the season kicks off.
Rookie quarterbacks have been on notice for years.
Finding rookie talent is more essential in the NFL than it is in any of the other major pro sports.
Andrew Luck most certainly left his mark on the Stanford football program.
General manager Ryan Grigson decided there was no reason to delay the inevitable: Luck will become the successor to Peyton Manning as Indianapolis’ quarterback and the new face of the franchise.
A person with direct knowledge of the situation says the Indianapolis Colts are taking Stanford quarterback Andrew with the No. 1 pick in next week’s NFL draft.
Teams that love to spout that they will be looking for the best available athlete on Draft Day are just filling your ears with soupy oatmeal.
He’s about to become a multimillionaire. An entire city – heck, state – is ready to shower him with adoration. And, so far, he’s led quite the charmed life during the 22 years that he’s been living it.

One college football analyst, however, said people should be careful before they crown Luck as the best of the best.
Some have called Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck the best NFL prospect to ever play college football.
Andrew Luck is dumb. Andrew Luck left millions on the table. Andrew Luck had the chance of a lifetime handed to him and he went and threw it straight out of bounds.
I sat around after the show at a computer in the office as I often do, taking care of odds and ends. Took care of some business, some personal, emails and such; printing a few things, whatever.
