I was thinking of this on the weekend watching the USC Stanford game.
If you look at Indy without Peyton Manning and look at all their blown first round picks you would have to say to get a guaranteed once in a decade going to be a Top 5 QB in the league for his entire career QB is worth more than anything in the new, no hitting no defence NFL right.
My final view was that if we had the 12th pick I would honestly give up 10 years of 1st Round Picks to move up with MIami/Indy to get Luck
My feeling is you can get elite players at just about every other position than QB or LT in later rounds of the draft or Free Agency. Unless you luck into an injury risk that pays off like the Saints did with Brees no team is letting a Franchise QB or LT walk in Free Agency, and unless its Brady its real tough to find any 2nd round or later QBs that are franchise players in the current NFL. Plus if you have an elite QB that first rounder is likely in the 20's anyway
So the question is how many years of 1st Round picks woudl you give up for Luck. my answer is 10 as long as Luck would be happy to go to a team with 10 years of no picks int he first ROund
To get Andrew Luck how many years would you accept being out of the 1st Round of the NFL Draft?
