Luck is an outstanding prospect. Worthy of the #1 pick, for sure. But don't kid yourself, he's got a learning curve ahead of him, just like any other rookie QB.
Luck made play calls and called his own audibles last year while playing in a pro style offense. His coach, David Shaw, came out and said last year that he's never seen a college QB have such command of an offense and that offense was pretty good.
Keenum made the play calls in a spread offense and has a big learning curve coming when he gets an NFL playbook.
Yates played in a pro style offense just like Luck, but I don't recall him calling plays or anything like that.
