View Full Version : What if Luck left Stanford after his Junior Year

His decision to stay drastically altered the future of four different franchises.

Luck was touted as the consensus #1 after his junior year if I'm not mistaken. 9 out of 10 prospects leave when theyre told theyre going #1

So the Panthers grab luck at #1, We probably take Cam at #2, The Colts keep Manning and RG3 goes #1 the following season probably to a team other then the Redskins. And Von ends up on the Bills or Bengals.

Do you guys think we would have taken Cam? Do you think he would have excelled here under Fox and McCoy this season and down the road?

I think we take Miller either way.

I really think Luck is a Bronco then. We know Elway had a hard on for him and the cost to move from #2 to #1 wouldnt have been that steep. (another 1 & 2 probably) He would have made it happen.

The Panthers were absolutely definitive that they were going to take Luck and not trade the pick. They even tried to hire Harbaugh, but he wasn't having it.

Harbaugh may have been the difference maker -- maybe if he takes the Panther job, Luck goes. (I don't know, maybe Luck hates Harbaugh).

Luck did, in fact, leave Stanford after his junior season. He was a redshirt sophmore in 2010. And I highly doubt Elway would have picked Newton.

We needed Defense. Cam would have ended up in Buffalo. Even with our QB situation at the time we never showed much interest in the QBs in that class

Hmm. With Tebow at QB and the Peyton Manning deal in the future, how does Elway resist a talented Quarterback?

Luck was going #1 and Carolina was not dealing that pick with Luck on the board.

well done I guess?
Q: I know you love these, so here's a great NFL what if: What if Andrew Luck came out after his junior year? If he comes out in 2011, Carolina takes him first and Denver takes Cam second (missing out on Von Miller, and one year later, Peyton Manning). In the 2012 Draft, Indy is then faced with either picking RG III or keeping Manning (and trading the pick), If they choose RG III, Washington misses out on Black Jesus. That's 4 franchises who had their course of history changed dramatically.

Luck didn't come out so move along.

Carolina should have drafted Miller he is the better player vs the fig newton

Cam Newton was a reach when Carolina took him, and doesn't fit the mold of what Elway wants at QB. I really don't think the Broncos would've taken Newton.

Elway would not take Cam, he would have sold the farm for Luck

Denver probably would have ended up with Luck. Carolina says they weren't moving, but nothing is in stone. Elway would have cleaned house upstairs and down to get the Stanford kid on the team. And there was a lot of talent in that draft... Carolina would have made out like some serious, late 80s-Cowboys-esque bandits. At least potentially, that is.

I think you guys are crazy to say we don't take Cam. It's a bit revisionist. I know he's having a very rough sophomore year, but coming off his championship year at Auburn, we definitely take him #2 to be our QBOTF, IMO.

Assuming a trade couldn't be worked out, of course.

I'm confused. Are you saying Luck went to Carolina then we took Cam? Because there's no way in ****ing hell Elway would've chosen Cam over Luck. Ever. Even if little Jack thought Andrew had pointy knees and sharp elbows.

I agree with this. I think they take Cam if he's there. And with strong leadership personalities around him like Elway, Fox, Champ, McGahee, you never know. We saw last year that on a pure talent basis- Cam is the prototypical new age QB. A little Big Ben, a little Vick, bit of Marino, but not enough Peyton yet.

Elway said he saw Derrick Thomas all over the film when scouting Von and DT was the guy he least enjoyed playing against ... no way we pass on Von when Cam was the other option .. now if Luck was there and Manning was not yet on the radar its a different story.

Ya Elway wanted Luck soooo bad. Even pained him when Tebow started winning for the Broncos. His facial expressions were telling when they showed him right after yet another miracle win.

I half think they started TT thinking they'd lose enough to win the Luck sweepstakes.

They wouldn't have changed our offensive system if they wanted to lose.
