ESPN’s Michael Wilbon went on the radio this morning and said the Indianapolis Colts are “seriously still considering” picking Robert Griffin III over Andrew Luck with the No. 1 overall pick.Science is the reason the Colts have eyes for RGIII, according to Wilbon (via DC Sports Blog):
“They have stats, they have analysis, they have information that says to them it’s Luck who is faster to leave the pocket and not be as good in the pocket. And RGIII is better in the pocket, he’s a better pocket passer, better arm. And that they are seriously still considering RGIII.”
Take this with a grain of salt. Luck has been the consensus No. 1 pick since last year. And by all accounts he’s done nothing to make anyone question his skills in the lead up to the draft.
This probably has more to do with how impressive RGIII has been than anything to do with Luck.
