NFL Draft Expert Compares Carson Wentz to Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck
If you're an NFL Draft prospect, there's a handful of current NFL quarterbacks you'd love to be compared to and Indianapolis Colts signal caller Andrew Luck is one of them.
When I look at him, I see a kid that's as athletic or more athletic than Andrew Luck. He's bigger than Andrew Luck. He's got arm strength comparable to Andrew Luck. He just doesn't have the experience that Andrew Luck had at a high level coming out of college. So I see a ceiling for this kid similar to Andrew Luck. That's why I believe in this kid so much, but it's going to take a little bit of time.
Luck was the starting quarterback for the Stanford Cardinal for three seasons (2009-11) and led the team to the Fiesta Bowl in his final season. Wentz, meanwhile, was only the starter at NDSU for two season (2014-15), though he did lead the Bison to two FCS championships.
Luck was selected first overall by the Indianapolis Colts in 2012 and took the team to the playoffs each of his first three seasons.
According to NFL.com, quite a few teams could be looking at Wentz as their quarterback of the future, including the Cleveland Browns (#2 overall), who have been searching for years for stability at that position.
The NFL Draft takes place April 28th through the 30th in Chicago.
