Luck vs. RGIII: Taking a Mulligan on the Top 5 Picks of the 2012 NFL Draft

Josh ZerkleChief Writer IIIOctober 11, 2012

Andrew Luck vs. Robert Griffin III was the big debate in April before the 2012 NFL draft. After the first quartile of the season is in the books, it's time to check our work and see if we got it right along with the Indianapolis Colts and the Washington Redskins. 

As we all know, Luck went first overall, and he brings a veteran presence to a team that was expected to rebuild this season. But lo and behold, the Colts trade for Vontae Davis in the preseason and get a stellar game out of Reggie Wayne in Week 5 to upset the Packers, and the Colts find themselves sitting at 2-2. 

Griffin, meanwhile, went second overall, and proceeded to take the nation's capital by storm. Despite the "mild concussion" suffered by the Baylor product in Week 5, RGIII appears ready to go for Week 6. If he's able to finish the season, he'll keep the Redskins competitive in every game he plays. 

And what about the other picks from the top five of the draft? Was No. 3 too high to take Trent Richardson? Was Matt Kalil the can't-miss prospect Minnesota expected at No. 4? What should Jacksonville have done with their choice at No. 5?

National NFL Lead Writer Michael Schottey and I take a mulligan on last April's Top Five, including the choice between Luck and Griffin for Indianapolis at No. 1. Check out our thoughts in the video above and leave yours in the comments below.

As always, thanks for watching.
