O.k. friends its over, #1 pick by Indianapolis Colts QB – Andrew Luck and last pick #253 by same team QB Chandler Harnish. So what do we now know, that for the fifth time, quarterbacks were taken 1st and 2nd in the NFL Draft.
2012 – 1st Andrew Luck – Indy / 2nd Robert Griffin III – Washington
1999 – 1st Tim Couch – Cleveland/2nd Donovan McNabb – Philly / 3rd Akili Smith – Cincy
1998 – 1st Peyton Manning – Indy /2nd Ryan Leaf – San Diego
1993 – 1st Drew Bledsoe – New England/2nd Rick Mirer – Seattle
1971 – 1st Jim Plunkett – Boston /2nd Archie Manning – New Orleans /Dan Pastorini – Houston
So as history as shown us when QB’s are drafted in the same round and especially 1 and 2 success is limited to one of the QB’s. But history is about to be turned around both Luck & Griffin III will be able to reach the 80 games started plateau and with success!!!
