There are guarantees at the QB position, but they're few and far between. The key is being competent enough to spot them when they come along... (i.e. Peyton Manning, Matt Ryan, etc... and Andrew Luck)
Prospects like Manning, Matt Ryan and Andrew Luck are low risk/high reward because they have high "floors" as prospects...the complete opposite of 95% of QB prospects that have ever entered the draft. Most of them are high risk/high reward.
He's not Marino though, it's also a bad comparison. Luck's release isn't anywhere near that quick. Nobody's is.
Besides, Marino had a substantial amount of risk with him too.... he had a horrible Senior season.
