2011 NFL Predictions: 5 Teams That Will Be in the Andrew Luck Sweepstakes

It seems like a foregone conclusion that Andrew Luck, junior QB at Stanford University, will be the first player taken during the 2012 NFL Draft.

Luck already has a storied college career with a list of accomplishments too long to list, although some highlights include being the runner-up for the 2010 Heisman Trophy and being named Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Year.

Some scouts have been calling him, "The best prospect they've ever scouted," and he has been drawing comparisons to former No.1 overall pick Peyton Manning.

Personally, the last time I ever saw as much hype about one player was back in 2005 with the Sidney Crosby sweepstakes.

Whoever finishes with the worst record in the upcoming NFL season will have the opportunity to draft Luck, and some are already predicting that certain teams will throw the season so they have the chance to draft their future franchise quarterback.

Obviously things can change before April, but here are five teams that will be in the "Suck For Luck" sweepstakes.

Side Note: I didn't include the Buffalo Bills because to me, if they get a lottery pick, they have enough holes to fill on their roster without including QB where they have the capable Ryan Fitzpatrick.
