Andrew Luck cements No. 1 status

By staff

The pro day workout of Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck was exactly what we expected to see Insider from the presumptive No. 1 overall pick, write's ESPN NFL draft analyst Todd McShay. Luck was surgical in his approach, made all the throws scouts want to see, and delivered a message about his arm strength.

Luck could have shown up on what was a cool, windy day, made 25 easy throws, thanked everyone for coming and called it a day without hurting himself, but he and quarterback coach George Whitfield Jr. -- who worked with Cam Newton leading up to the 2011 draft -- put together a script of 48 passes that had a higher degree of difficulty than we see at most pro days.
