The 2012 NFL Draft is still a couple of months away, but rumors are already running rampant regarding 2011 Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III from Baylor University. While it is close to a foregone conclusion that the Indianapolis Colts will select Stanford Cardinal quarterback Andrew Luck with the No. 1 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, it is Griffin that is expected to garner the most attention leading up to the draft toward the end of April.
Griffin III is a dual threat quarterback, as he can get it done through the air as well as on the ground. Think a smaller version of Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers, who was last year’s top overall draft pick. After watching him shatter so many rookie records last season, that has teams salivating over the possibility of drafting the reigning Heisman winner this year. He could be that special type of player.
The question is, which team will offer the most to move up in the draft order to put themselves in a position to select...
BEST OF MAXIM

It was last year at this time we all had Andrew Luck ready for the number one pick to the Carolina Panthers but instead, much like the man he is most compared to in Peyton Manning, he decided to stay and finish his college career. Falling short of the Heisman Trophy for the second year and also a BCS National Championship he also suffered a loss in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl in overtime...
Time to wrap up the week with one more look at one of the best games of the 2011 season. To do so we head out to the state of California, where one BCS contender stayed alive and another program showed they were up to the task to take on the best of the best.
Before we continue with a look back at the Baylor's big win, and in case you have missed any of the previous segments...

We are 70 days, 2 hours and 45 minutes from the NFL Draft, on April 26th and the Indianapolis Colts are on the clock, baby. EVERYONE and their mother expects the Colts and drunk Uncle Jimmy to RUN that card up to the commish and for him to read “AND WITH THE FIRST PICK IN THE 2012 NFL DRAFT, THE INDIANAPOLIS COLTS SELECT…….ANDREW LUCK, QUARTERBACK, STANFORD UNIVERSITY.”

Doesn’t have a cannon for an arm, but he can make all the throws. He can fit the ball into tight windows, puts nice tough on the ball when needed, and can throw on the run as well.
Luck has no issues with accuracy due to his ability to ulitize...

This idea may be in the head of the Indianapolis Colts front office, but it would be highly unlikely to happen.
In 1983 the Baltimore Colts had the first overall pick. There was another great quarterback from Stanford at that time, John Elway. The Baltimore Colts were coming off an 0-8-1 season.
After a remarkable college career, in which he set nearly every Stanford and Pacific...
Mike Mayock loves Andrew Luck but doesn't consider him a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity:
NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock is a big Andrew Luck fan. Luck is the top player on Mayock’s board, and Luck’s passion for the game reminds Mayock of Peyton Manning and Matt Ryan.
Mayock just doesn’t see Luck as some sort of “once in a lifetime” prospect like others have...
