Luck, Griffin III declare for draft

ANDREW LUCK, Stanford Just days after leading Stanford

Just days after leading Stanford to a 12-1 record in 2010 and Orange Bowl win over Virginia Tech, Luck announced that he would return for his redshirt junior season. Luck threw for 3,338 yards and 32 touchdowns in 2010, and finished second in the Heisman Trophy voting to Auburn’s Cam Newton. In 2011, Luck led Stanford to a 10-2 record and again finished second in the Heisman voting.
NFL Draft: Luck was considered the No. 1 quarterback and a potential No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft. Same can be said for the 2012 draft.
