Andrew Luck– Decided not to enter the draft
Yeah, I know I’ve listed six but there is not really a consensus top five, from what I can see. Everyone has Andrew Luck going to the Carolina Panthers with the first overall pick. So it’s likely one of three remaining quarterbacks, if any are available when the Vikings pick at number 12. Here’s the NFL Network’s Mike Mayock‘s take on the top quarterback prospects.
Ricky Stanzi – Iowa #12, 6’4″, 230 lbs., 4.81 40 yard dash. College Bio.
UPDATE: Andrew Luck decided not to enter the 2011 NFL draft after this post was originally published, so he no longer qualifies as one of the top five draft prospects this year. Andrew Luck, Stanford – 6’4″, 235 lbs.
