Andrew Luck's Pro Day: An Annotated Review

Nate Dunlevy@NateDunlevyGuest ColumnistMarch 22, 2012

Andrew Luck had his pro-day today in Palo Alto.

It went staggeringly well, but his prospective bosses didn't even bother to show up.

The Colts' decision to take Luck first overall in the upcoming draft is such a done-deal and no-brainier that most of the Indianapolis brass didn't even bother to make the flight out.

Luck wowed onlookers and viewers on TV with a stunning display of accuracy, capping things off with a 70-yard bomb that hit its target in stride.

At this stage, there is really no question of Luck's arm strength.

It's an eerily similar to the charge that was made about Peyton Manning coming out of college as well, but somehow it never seemed to come back to bite Manning in the pros.

Arm strength has always been something of a sucker's game when it comes to college quarterbacks. While it is certainly is nice to have, you can survive in the NFL without it.

While Luck grabbed the headlines, one of the most impressive performances of the day came from tight end Coby Fleener.

Fleener's 4.45 40-yard dash had scouts drooling and Indy fans dreaming of a second round pick that would reunite the college teammates.

No matter what the talking heads say to drum up controversy, Roger Goodell will be calling Andrew Luck's name to kick off the NFL draft.

Colts fans will be happy, and the Redskins will take home a fine consolation prize in Robert Griffin III.
