For the first time since 1999, quarterbacks were the top two picks in the NFL Draft. Those two players, Andrew Luck of the Indianapolis Colts and Robert Griffin III will meet today at 4 p.m. Unless these two teams meet in the Super Bowl (unlikely), this will be the only time the two face off this season.
As expected, both have shown flashes of both brilliance and rookie mistakes through two preseason games apiece. But it's obvious why these two were the top picks in the draft. Luck's already has the calm resilience of a veteran. Griffin, of course, gets to show off his elite-level athleticism. Today may only be a preseason game, but it will be a fun one.
