2. Andrew Luck, Colts
- 2014: 96.5 QB Rating, 4,761 Yards, 40 TD, 16 INT
Now we get down to the two guys who every personnel decision maker agrees are one-two in the league.
At No. 2 it’s Andrew Luck.
Only three years into his eventual wonderful NFL career, this Indianapolis Colts gem has progressed the right way along with his team.
First it was shocking the world by making his Colts a playoff team in 2012. Then they won a playoff game in 2013. Finally getting to the AFC Championship Game in 2014. With heavy veteran additions this past offseason, many are expecting Luck and the Colts to jump one more level.
What’s amazing about Luck though is how he’s done this.
In all actuality, these Colts aren’t that great of a team. It’s been Luck who’s overcome shortcomings at certain positions. For example, Luck’s offensive line is not good. The Stanford product is so aware in and around the pocket that he takes a number of 60 sacks and automatically turns it into 20.
His arm strength is great, accuracy phenomenal, and leadership abilities second to none. Unlike Robert Griffin III – the other quarterback from the 2012 draft – Luck is all football all the time. Nothing else matters in his world. It’s business.
Next up for Luck is MVP and perhaps Super Bowl.
