Andrew Luck to the Colts and Robert Griffin III to the Redskins have been the worst kept secrets of the entire offseason. The Colts' release of Peyton Manning and the Redskins' trade up from No. 6 to No. 2 is basically a declaration that the Vikings are now on the clock.
We all know the NFL is a quarterback-driven league. An NFL quarterback gets more money, responsibility, blame and praise than any other player in football. League rules have been altered to enhance passing and to ensure the health of quarterbacks (and receivers).
So if the quarterback position is so important and these two players are so special, it's only natural to compare them and attempt to figure out who the better player is.
Many fans, analysts and journalists (including myself) have long thought that Luck is the best quarterback prospect in this draft, hands down. But after further investigation, it might not be such a landslide.
