Luck, Griffin won't throw at Combine

The speculation is over, the top two rated quarterbacks in the 2012 NFL draft won't be throwing passes at the Combine. 

Stanford's Andrew Luck and Baylor's Robert Griffin each made their announcements during today's media session at the Combine. Luck will do every other athletic drill at the Combine other than throw. Griffin will run. Each is saving their throwing session until they can work with their own receivers during their Pro Days. Stanford's Pro Day is March 22. Baylor's was scheduled for the same day until it was changed so that scouts could see both Luck and Griffin throw. 

While scouts would certainly love to see Luck and Griffin choose to throw this week, their decisions to push back their throwing sessions won't impact their draft stock. Highly regarded quarterbacks often choose to wait until their Pro Day workouts. Cam Newton, last year, was a notable exception.

Luck and Griffin III are NFLDraftScout.com's top two rated prospects for the 2012 draft and are projected as the first two picks in my current mock draft.
