Not breaking news for anyone that watched college football last night: Andrew Luck is really, really good. Teams want him, and men want to be him.
Halfway through the early games during Week 8, the Indianapolis Colts are looking like the clear-cut favorite to win the Luck sweepstakes.
And as CBS Sports Charley Casserly reported on Sunday, they're totally OK with that.
"Barring any medical issue with Andrew Luck, if the Colts have a chance to take him next year, they're going to take him," Casserly said on The NFL Today.
Casserly also pointed out Luck, who does have one year of eligibility left at Stanford, is "unlikely" to return to school in 2012. Oh, yes, and he compares somewhat favorably in terms of how teams view him.
"First of all, talking to the Luck camp, it's highly unlikely that he would go back to Stanford," Casserly said. "Talking to general managers around the league, they say Andrew Luck will be the highest-rated quarterback coming out since the 1983 draft, which had John Elway as the first player taken."
That's ridiculously high praise, and probably a bit ironic too, considering the likelihood of Luck replacing the only guy -- Peyton Manning -- who might have left college as more of a sure thing.
