That is a tough break for the Carolina Panthers (except Jimmy Clausen).
I have always said that if you have a chance to be the #1 pick in the NFL Draft you have to go. I believe Luck should go even though I know he has different circumstances than many players coming out for the draft.
He isn’t hurting for money, enjoys college and doesn’t appear to be in a rush to get to the NFL.
Last quarterback I heard that about was Matt Leinart, but I digress.
I don’t think his draft stock will slip in 2012, he will still go high, just has to worry about injury. This makes the BCS National Championship game even more interesting.
If Cam Newton has a Vince Young type of performance there will be discussions he should go #1.
