His ascent, due in part to the increasing demand for a quarterback as free agency winds down, has put the spotlight on one of the most unique quarterback prospects in years.
NFL Network’s Mike Mayock recently broke down this offseason’s headliners and what else to look for at this week’s Combine on a conference call with reporters.
It appears that the Colts will select Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the first pick in this April’s draft, preventing the Dolphins from selecting the Heisman runner-up.
