The difference between Luck and Griffin

Paul Kuharsky points out a couple of draftnik takes on Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin’s strengths and weaknesses. 

Todd McShay loved Luck’s ability to place the ball into the right spot:

For example, on a rollout toward the sideline to his left, Luck threw a ball to TE Coby Fleener that was low and away, forcing Fleener to go down and get it, and that was no accident. In live action it would have been away from a trailing defender in a place where only Fleener could make the catch.

K.C. Joyner says that Griffin was better when throwing to someone other than his top receiver Kendall Wright. He had higher YPA than Luck did when targeting someone other than Coby Fleener.

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.
