NFL Draft 2012: Andrew Luck is the "1st Pick in the 1st Round and There’s No Question About It"

NBC's Michelle Tafoya recently interviewed long-time NFL coach Tom Moore - who has been tutoring former Stanford QB Andrew Luck since the end of the 2011 college football season - and Moore didn't mince words when he was asked whether the Colts should draft Luck or go another route. There has been some hype and speculation of late that Robert Griffin III might be more worthy of the first overall pick and future as the Colts franchise quarterback, but Moore would disagree. He said:

"This kid [Luck] is the first pick in the first round and there's no question about it. I would draft him and I would never look back."

Moore has a lot of experience coaching quarterbacks, and was the Colts offensive coordinator from 1998 - 2010, overseeing Peyton Manning's illustrious career in Indy. After coaching Luck for the past few months, Moore offered his opinion on why he thinks the Colts should take the Stanford QB.

He's the real deal. If you draft him you never have to worry about anything. You know he'll be prepared. You know he'll be in shape. You know he'll study. You know he'll practice hard. You won't have to worry about anything. And you'll know he's going to go home and spend two-to-three more hours working on what you talked about.
