UPoR Panthers reporter Darin Gantt is a homer that’s high on the snark factor but low on actual insight. Today, he examines what teams might be interested in drafting Andrew Luck, who is widely projected to be the best quarterback available in April’s NFL draft, should Luck decide to come out of Stanford early. About Luck being drafted by the Buffalo Bills, Gantt writes:
Would they take Luck: They’d like to, but the bigger question might be whether Luck would take the Bills.
There are already rumors within the scouting community that his coming out of school early isn’t a sure thing, and that the owner of the first pick could well impact that.
That’s a polite way of suggesting that Buffalo might not be viewed as a desirable destination. Go figure.
Hate to break this to you Darin, if Luck’s coming out early depends upon where he might end up, then the Panthers are in just as much trouble as the Bills. Why? Let’s see:
OK, the weather is nicer in Charlotte than Buffalo. But other than that, why would Andrew Luck really want to be drafted by the Panthers?
