    only one? hah thats easy. Andrew Luck, dude is a great passer, strong arm, mobility in the pocket, can run too when he wants. If he had to play in Auburn's offense last year Id say he wouldve put up better numbers than Newton, of course passing, but rushing as well, had almost 500 rushing yards last year 8 ypc in a pro style offense that didn't have many designed qb runs.

    one of the few designed qb run plays, zone read (which is what the Auburn offense is based off of, well variations) He could do that all day. Not surprising that when Luck does it they say "fakes out", more like out ran the entire d which is what it would be called if someone like Newton did the same play. If he didn't have above average speed there is no way that is 51 yard td, maybe a 15-20 yard gain, two of the guys in the secondary were not fooled and were after him the entire way. They say he runs a 4.8 but I doubt that, has to be faster. Dalton ran around that time, and ran many zone-read type plays, rarely had anything longer than 15 yards

    could probably play free safety as well

    I know everyone loves Andrew Luck but there's a different top pick on my radar...<div></div><div>Luke Kuechly - Linebacker - Boston College</div><div></div><div>His total tackles numbers are ridiculously high, he's an outstanding defensive playmaker and he's an intelligent, well-spoken guy who definitely could be the (defensive) face of a franchise.</div>

    I'm not sure I understand the nature of the question.

    Are we assuming that we're a NFL GM and we only have one selection in the draft (due to trades, etc.)?

    You didn't ask "Who is the first player you'd pick?"
    You asked "Who is the only player you'd pick?"

    So it's a little weird, since that situation would never actually come up.

    But, if it's a scenario where we only have one selection for the 2012 draft, and assuming that we get the first pick overall, I think everyone would take Luck. Honestly it would be stupid not to. If you only get one drafted player that year, you should take Luck #1 and then you can either use him or trade him for whatever you need.

    Ok, so with that out of the way, let's assume that we're drafting second and Luck is off the board. I'd take Matt Conrath, DE/DT from Virginia. At his size (6'7", 275) he's too fast (4.73) for the lard-asses in the NFL to defend. He would also make an excellent every-down TE.
