QB | Andrew Luck | NFL Draft Prospect | Draft, Fantasy
Stanford QB Andrew Luck took part in Stanford's pro day Thursday, March 22, on an unseasonably cold and windy day. He hit 46 of his 50 passing attempts, and three of the incompletions were drops by receivers. Of the three drops, one was a 70-plus-yard spiral that was mishandled in the end zone by WR Chris Owusu. The 70-yard pass came at the request of some scouts to test his arm strength, which may be one of the few questions some had about Luck.

Luck said he is in a very unique position and should be drafted pretty high -- he is expected to be taken No. 1 overall by the Indianapolis Colts.

"Maybe a pro day is not going to hurt or help me as much as some other guys on our team. So I wanted to go out there and maybe show the strength of some of our receivers. If that means I go out there and throw a ball that I don't really want to, maybe I'll do it for those guys," Luck said.
