Legendary draft analyst Gil Brandt writes that he’s “not sure whether he or Andrew Luck should be the No. 1 overall draft pick” after watching QB Robert Griffin III at Baylor’s Pro Day.
Griffin threw 51 scripted passes on Wednesday and only 2 of them fell incomplete.
“His arm strength is very, very good; he threw the ball with ease 60 yards down the field,” Brandt writes. He even mentioned that Griffin “has excellent feet, and he’s equally good going to his right or his left.”
There’s been growing speculation that Griffin is indeed worthy of the No. 1 overall pick in recent weeks and having someone as respected as Brandt is in the scouting world behind it only helps to validate the idea.
For weeks now, Andrew Luck has been cemented as the player that the Indianapolis Colts will be taking come April. There were even some reports that suggested that the Colts asked Luck to not participate in this year’s Scouting Combine so it seems like a foregone conclusion that he’ll be playing for the “horseshoe” next season but Griffin isn’t making this as easy of a decision as it once was.
