1. Andrew Luck (2012)
The son of an NFL player. Off-the charts intelligence. Described as having a near Eidetic memory. There’s good reason that Andrew Luck was considered to be the best quarterback prospect to enter the NFL Draft since John Elway nearly a quarter century prior. In a profession that’s quick to nitpick at every single college prospect, virtually nobody had a single legitimately negative thing to say about him.
Sure, there were times that he made throws that he would’ve liked to have back, but doesn’t every quarterback? But between his football IQ, mental processing ability, physical stature (6’4 and 234 lbs), deceptive athleticism (he ran the 40-yard dash in a virtually identical time as Cam Newton), and plenty of arm strength, he was considered damn near a “perfect prospect.”
