Whichever team finishes with the worst record in the NFL this season can take comfort in knowing they are in the driver’s seat to pick Andrew Luck, the most coveted quarterback prospect since Peyton Manning.

For those teams that don’t need Luck, it is said a team will be able to acquire three first-round picks by trading away the first overall slot.

This article explores what each team would do if given the first overall pick. Obviously the Green Bay Packers aren't going to get the first overall pick. Realistically, only a handful of the teams really have a shot for Luck, and at this point, it appears like the Indianapolis Colts have strong odds.

But it's for fun. What would Ted Thompson do if the Packers got the first overall pick? What would Tom Brady's future in New England be if the New England Patriots landed this selection? Would the Carolina Panthers or Cincinnati Bengals part ways with their talented rookie quarterbacks to take Luck?

Some teams are on the bubble between picking Luck and trading the top overall pick for a trifecta of first rounders. This breaks down the teams in order of how much they need Luck, starting with the teams that don’t need him the most.
