Andrew Luck Says He'll Make NFL Decision After Orange Bowl

Andrew Luck says he'll make a decision about entering the NFL draft after the Orange Bowl.
Andrew Luck says he'll make a decision about entering the NFL draft after the Orange Bowl.

Andrew Luck was on the Dan Patrick show this morning and Patrick didn't waste any time asking the Stanford QB about his future plans.

Do you have your Heisman outfit picked out already?

"I do, I do. My mom gave me the go ahead to buy a new suit, so I went and did that."

Is that the same suit you'd wear to the NFL draft?

"I don't know, I don't know."

Oh, you'd get another suit for the NFL draft.

"No, uh, I still haven't made that decision."

When do you make that decision?

"After the bowl game. I'll sit down with my family and, you know, see what's best."

[Later in the interview.]

More likely to go to the NFL: you or your coach?

"[Laughter] That's a good question. I don't know, I don't know...I don't know how to answer that. I haven't given much thought to myself going to the NFL."

Ah, you're scrambling here. Come on, I'm going to track you down.

"[Laughter] Track me down? I still won't have an answer if you track me down."

All right, well, we'll just pile on you until you have one. I think you're both gone. Judging what you did this year, you seem like you need that next challenge.

"Yeah, I'm sure it'll be a challenge in the NFL and I'll figure out when that challenge begins, I guess."

Well, you know what, you don't want to have a situation like Jake Locker where you're ready to come out and then all of a sudden he had a down year. So, that has to factor in as well of jumping in when the time is right.

"Well, that's a very good point."

The entire segment is definitely worth a listen. Patrick asks if Luck would like another shot at Oregon ("Absolutely") and to state his case for the Heisman Trophy. Luck says the only tape his dad keeps in the house from his NFL playing days is "15 minutes from a game he played against the San Diego Chargers in 1984." It's a good tape to have. Playing in relief of Warren Moon, Luck was 4-for-4 for 70 yards and a touchdown in that game.
