Pretty bad comparison, not many people not named Mel Kiper Jr thought he's be a good NFL QB. Every scout/analyst agrees Luck is the consensus First pick. And Luck possesses way better tools than Claussen.

Matt Barkley is a lot more similar to Claussen than anyone else in this draft.

it wasn't until the combine though that Clausen's stock dropped

most had him going in the top-5, thought he would be a great QB...reasons why?

he ran a pro style offense in college and knew the system very well...alot of people thought that would translate to automatic NFL success



as most know now, what kind of offense you ran in college is pretty much meaningless in the NFL...

i agree he's overhyped but i've seen him play and he looks really poised and NFL ready. He's on the right track if there is a such a thing as a paved and golden road to be an NFL QB. watch him play more instead of reading just the hype.

Primetime is just sour cuz Luck is a better prospect than Bradford (whom I always have praised as well)

oh you watch a lot of Stanford games Duma?

I guess I should have known that everyone here spends every Saturday watching Stanford games and is busy scouting Luck and comparing him to prospects of the past...

I don't know about these other guys but I'll flip back and forth between the Stanford game and whatever other game I'm watching for at least a couple quarters specifically to watch Luck play.

This guy has more tools as a prospect than anyone I've seen in quite some time. I loved Bradford, thought he was the real deal. I think Luck has more tools than him.

I'm rooting for the right teams to be in a position to get him. Indy would be amazing although the Dungy is starting to wear off that team.

The best situation for Luck would be Miami, solid O-line, Great receiver and a promising young RB.

How is Alex Smith a bust when he is a starter for a 5-1 team?

Aaron Curry- " the safest pick in the draft" "Hard to find a flaw"

Every 'expert' before the 09 draft.
