    And Luck was absolutely no doubtaboutit the consensus #1 last year. He's literally the best QB prospect since Peyton, hell maybe Elway depending who you ask. Right now he's a top 10ish NFL QB, he has no fault but inexperience.
    Nah, I am with P4E on this one, Painter isn't bad because Peyton is not an effective teacher, Painter is bad because he should be playing arena football right now. I'm sure I could learn a lot from Peyton but that doesn't mean I'd magically be an NFL caliber QB because of it. A teacher can only do so much with the talent given to him.
    Already stoked for 2013-2014.

    Now you're re-writing history a bit as well. Luck was not the consensus number 1 pick last fall by any stretch.
    Yes, he was.

    Edit: Been trying to find Kiper's Preseason Big Board but have been unable to locate it. Plus I think he left underclassmen out. But Luck was always right at the top.

    Painter should have never been an NFL QB. If a guy can't draw, you can't hand him to Van Gogh and say make him a famous artist.

    Last fall no. Certainly he was a top 3 prospect but last spring he defiantly was the consensus number one pick before he backed out of the draft.
    I agree with that, but he was not the consensus pick last fall. Like he is now. Things change that's all I'm saying. Someone else could separate from the pack. Or catch up to him. He could drop, flukes happen all the time.

    I'm pretty sure Nick Fairley was at the top of all the boards at the end of the season. Especially after the championship game.

    Mel Kiper had him on top after Luck backed out and I think if Luck chose to stay in the draft then Kiper or McShay would have first in Jan-April.

    Take him and keep him.

    The dude's name is Luck. Could be a sign.

    Yeah I'm not sure Peyton Manning will ever be back at his former level, sadly. I think if we got in a position to take Luck, we would have to do it and keep him. Let him learn a year or two under Manning, and hope he's willing to do it.

    It would be a no brainer. Take Luck and keep him. This guy would've been the 1st pick in the draft for about the last 12-13 drafts. Nobody is ever a sure thing, but he's about as close as you'll come to one as an NFL QB prospect.

    Not much of a choice, really. There isn't a GM in the league who would want to be known as the guy who traded away the #1 QB prospect in over a decade.

    another tidbit from the King article is that Polian and Caldwell both scouted Andy Dalton at TCU in person last season during the Colts bye week, and King speculates that if Dalton had been still on the board in round #2, he might be a Colt.

    Dalton actually looked pretty good yesterday against the Browns before he got hurt.

    Polian made the trip to Muncie to watch Nate Davis play a few different times. It could have been just because it's less than an hour trip, assuming he lives on the northside of Indy.

    I don't think it really matters what the reason is, to be frank. Polian isn't going to pass on up Luck because he didn't watch a game in person, and he isn't going to draft him because of it either.

    It makes no difference either way.
