Rookie QB Andrew Luck has finally been able to join his new team and has looked impressive on the field early on for the Indianapolis Colts. NFL rules did not allow Luck to attend any Colts offseason activities until he complete school in Stanford. Despite his absence. Luck was drawing rave reviews from teammates and coaches alike.
Rookie head coach Chuck Pagano called Luck, “off the charts” in regards to his football IQ and completed the practice without any mental errors. Rookie tight end and fellow Stanford teammate Coby Fleener told reporters that Andrew Luck “is the best I’ve ever played with. The best I’ve ever seen in person.”
On Wednesday, the Colts opened their mini-camp to fans and approximately 7,500 of the Colts faithful showed up to get a glimpse of their franchise quarterback. After the first workout for the fans, Luck seems to have made the transition from Peyton Manning to Luck a little smoother. Speaking to ESPN, 42-year old Larry Lineback was impressed. “He’s the real deal; he’s looking very sharp right now. He overthrew one and that was the only one I’ve seen.”
In the full-speed practice, Luck finished the afternoon completing 26 of 37 attempts.
Andrew Luck prepares to embark on his rookie season and enters the league with very high expectations. The Stanford signal caller has been called the most NFL ready rookie to enter the league at his position since John Elway decades ago.
