Dave Dameshek ponders what would we be looking at in this year's draft had Stanford QB Andrew Luck came out in the 2011 draft? In his bizarro world known as the N"if"L, Dameshek tries to see how the dominoes would have fallen, as Luck more than likely would have still been the top overall pick last year as well, but this time going to the Carolina Panthers instead of Cam Newton.

That means Newton would have gone to the Denver Broncos in this Twilight Zone and fast forward to this year, we'd be seeing Robert Griffin 3rd being taken by the Indianapolis Colts with their first pick in the draft. He then doesn't see Tim Tebow being traded by the Broncos to the Jets, but instead the "Chosen One" gets converted to a tight end and Denver ships Kyle Orton to New York where he ultimately takes over for Mark Sanchez, who in Dameshek's world, still sucks.
