Each Rookie QB, Luck, RG3 and Tannehill, have had a week of Rookie Minicamp and have each made impacts on their respected teams. All 3 of them have been happy with what they have gotten done and are happy to see the progress they have been making.
Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts:
Luck has been happy with the reps he has been getting at camp. He most enjoys working in the red zone, especially after he heard a very important stat from his coach, Bruce Arians. “Most games in the NFL are won or lost by an average of 4 points, and that is the difference between a field goal and a TD.” Luck has emphasized that he is excited to be throwing some touchdowns in camp and not throwing many interceptions. He believes he has made leaps and bounds, progress wise, and believes the most important thing is the amount of practice reps he has been getting.
I believe Luck is going to make a huge impact in his first year with the Colts. He has all the tools to be a great QB in the NFL, and I believe he will be able to do great things. Luck’s potential is through the roof, we just need to see if he will fulfill the potential.
Robert Griffin III, Washington Redskins:
Griffin stressed how much he loved working with the team. Griffin said he had some fun learning the offense, but in a week when he gets to play with the rest of the team, that’s what he is really looking forward to. He is excited to be working with all the players that the Redskins drafted. He loved working on the “Go” routes with the receivers. Overall, Griffin didn’t speak much about what he really felt about the minicamp. He is just preparing and getting ready for this season. RG3, even said it himself, “They drafted me for a reason and I plan on going out and doing what I’m supposed to do.”
RG3 has the potential to be an unbelievable QB. In this past years draft, you had 2 QB’s who have the ability to change their organizations. RG3 is going to be a breath of fresh air for Redskins fans and they should be very excited to watch him play.
Ryan Tannehill, Miami Dolphins:
Tannehill has had a great first week in minicamp. The GM of the Dolphins even said, that he wouldn’t be surprised if Tannehill was now truly competing for the starting job. He already knows about 80% of the offense because his offensive coordinator was his college coach. He is a little ahead, knowledge wise, of David Garrard and Matt Moore. But the Dolphins want to take it slow with Tannehill and understand that they truly want to develop him into a star QB. Tannehill has been saying he is enjoying getting out there and getting some good reps in. He likes the offense and feels comfortable after only a week, which is a good sign.
Tannehill has the size and arm strength to make an impact in this league. I don’t disagree with what the Dolphins are doing though, I think they should develop him behind Matt Moore and David Garrard, two experienced QB’s, and see what they can get out of him.
