Widely projected as a high pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Luck spurned the NFL for another year in college, and Stanford fans certainly rejoiced. Luck didn’t disappoint the Cardinal faithful and, if anything, actually improved his NFL stock with another terrific season.

Trusted with some play-calling responsibilities, the fourth-year junior has freedom to change plays and protections. After throwing an interception that was returned for a TD against USC with just more than three minutes to play, he rallied his team for the tying score and the eventual win in overtime.

Luck led the Cardinal to an 11-1 season with the only blemish a 53-30 loss to Pac-12 North champion Oregon. For his part, Luck passed for 3,170 yards and 35 touchdowns.

He has led the Stanford Cardinal to back-to-back BCS bowls.
