ESPN shows Washington State quarterback Luke Falk the love

WASHINGTON STATE quarterback Luke Falk has NFL written all over him, says ESPN analyst Trevor Matich. Forget about the "system quarterback" chatter, Falk makes all the NFL throws, he says.

Washington State is ready to "really make a splash this year," says Matich, and it all starts with Falk.

Physically, Falk is an NFL prototype QB, but he stands out especially for his playing smarts, notes ESPN in this video clip.
