We at Scouts Inc. have studied the college production of 20 of the top quarterbacks in the NFL, and Andrew Luck would be above average in every category.
Luck will finish with 38 career starts, slightly above the average of 35 for the players we studied, and with only the Fiesta Bowl remaining, his 70.3 completion percentage over his final two seasons is higher than any in the study. In addition, his 3.9-to-1 touchdown-interception ratio is significantly higher than the 2.5-to-1 average in the study, and Luck has done it in a pro-style system rather than a spread like leader Sam Bradford (5.4-to-1).
But in the end, it's all about wins. Luck's career winning percentage of .838 (31-6) would be among the elite in our review, and his .920 mark (23-2) over his past two seasons would tie Michael Vick for the top spot. All this is more impressive because he has done it with a pedestrian supporting cast and a lack of receiving talent this season because of injuries. -- Todd McShay
