Nothing wrong with Andrew Luck’s arm strength

Before the 2012 NFL draft a few highly regarded (along with more than a few not-so-highly-regarded) pundits openly questioned Andrew Luck’s arm strength leading some to project Robert Griffin III as a better prospect. Luck’s camp and preseason thus far has started to answer those questions. George Bremer of the Herald Bulletin notes Adam Vinatieri has seen some of the best and he’s got no doubts about the rookie’s ability to make the throws:

“He’s impressed me with his arm strength,” said Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri, who has played in six Super Bowls alongside Drew Bledsoe, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. “He has a short little window where he throws the ball in there real pretty. He makes all the throws.”

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
