As you have heard, Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck has decided to forgo the draft and play his redshirt junior season for the Cardinal.
Surprised? Don't be.
Luck comes from a family who stresses that you go to college to get your degree, and if you don't, then you haven't accomplished what you were supposed to. However, this decision could come back to bite Luck. He was projected to go No. 1 overall, and with another season now before he will actually declare, anything could happen (i.e, Jake Locker).
He also is going to lose a ton of guaranteed money, even if he is the No. 1 pick next season, because the NFL is suspected to put a cap on rookie salaries, much like the NBA.
