Neckbeard With The Arm: Colts Luck Drafted 1st Overall for Pro Bowl


The Indianapolis Colts Andrew Luck is used to be taken #1 overall. He was the 1st pick in the 2012 NFL Draft and yet again, in last’s year’s Pro Bowl fantasy draft.

So when Team Carter and their Captain J.J. Watt selected, “The neckbeard with the arm,” with the 1st pick in this year’s 2015 Pro Bowl fantasy draft, was anyone really surprised?

No…not really.

Luck was projected to be the “Top Individual Player Pick” by many NFL Pro Bowl experts (is that a thing?), excluding the two teams’ respective duo of captains (Team Carter: J.J. Watt and Antonio Brown; Team Irvin: DeMarco Murray and Joe Haden).

His most recent #1 overall selection even drew the laughs of a fellow teammate in Robert Mathis:

Luck was the most exciting quarterback available in this year’s Pro Bowl quarterback class, and quite possibly the best (although a case could still be made for Drew Brees). After Luck’s selection, the Dallas Cowboys Tony Romo was taken as the 2nd overall selection, and the draft rolled on.

Overall, it was a fairly watered down quarterback group, as there were no names like Brady, Manning, or Rodgers. Instead, somehow Andy Dalton managed to make the NFL’s version of the All-Star game.

For the “Neckbeard with the arm,” he’ll take another 1st overall selection in stride, as he hopes to deliver a victory in this year’s Pro Bowl for Team Carter. Happy to be selected by J.J. Watt, and not facing against him like always.
