Andrew Luck vs. Notre Dame

Here are the notes I took when scouting the game tape of Andrew Luck vs. Notre Dame on 11-28-09. I don't notate every play; only the ones that I feel stand out.



1st QTR (time not noted - my bad)
Out route - ball is overthrown out of catch radius to sideline - inaccurate ball

2nd QTR (5:24)
Slant route - thrown nearly into dirt - inaccurate throw.

2nd QTR (4:17)
Quick out - Good job getting throw off (back foot) - stayed in pocket and took hit - nice accuracy

2nd Qtr (1:33)
Displays good arm strength on the post route - poor timing - ball should have come out a second earlier - needs to improve coverage read should have immediately thrown ball by reading the MIKE.

3rd Qtr (8:56)
Good decision to not force ball in coverage - decides to run and picks up 20-yard gain. Impressive pocket manuverability and solid athleticism.

Footote: Luck isn't asked to do much though he is just a redshirt freshman, Luck hands the ball off very often and isn't heavily relied upon in the passing game.

3rd Qtr (5:13)
Very impressive mobility and clearly is a fluid athlete, but don't confuse Luck for Michael Vick or Jake Locker.

3rd Qtr (4:01)
Flea flicker - good mechanics (footwork, release) - average touch on the football - solid arm - accurate pass to a wide open receiver

3rd Qtr (2:14)
Nice mechanics - great touch to tight end on out quick slant out - very good footwork and drives off back foot

Footnote: Luck gets a ton of experience under center in an NFL offense - should have a smooth transition to the NFL in this area unlike 95 percent of college quarterbacks.

4th Qtr (3:14)
7-step drop - footwork got sloppy - lost balance a bit - touch on the football is still a little wobbly - good accuracy over the middle in the stride on the hook route
