Will Luck and Fleener recreate the magic?

Scott Kacsmar takes a look at other quarterback and tight end combos from the same college in the NFL and discovered that this grand experiment hasn’t been attempted often and never were they selected in the first and second rounds.  33 QB/receivers combos were selected in history, 8 of those receivers were actually tight ends. None were all that successful either:

Out of the previous 32 cases, only six actually saw both the quarterback and receiver play for the team that drafted them.

Ouch! Scott lays out the specifics over at Bleacher Report.

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.
