We really had to reach to find negatives for Luck. He’s probably the best Quarterback since John Elway, if not better. Presuming he doesn’t have his right arm amputated by draft day, he’ll go first overall. His dad, Oliver Luck, played quarterback in the NFL. Luck still has another year of eligibility, will he stay at Stanford for another year?
According to the Trade Value Chart the Seahawks would need to make up 1750-1800 points depending on if they end up with the 11th or 12th overall pick in order to trade for the top pick. Because the 12th pick is worth only 1200 points, such a trade would certainly involve at least a second first rounder. For some reference, even if the Seahawks traded their entire 2012 draft to the Colts they’d have nearly 1000 TVC points to make up. Chances are it would involve two firsts, two seconds, a third, and perhaps a player. It would be an ugly trade, and Luck is really good which increases the value of the pick, but is he worth that much?
