Washington State QB Luke Falk among NFL.com's top 15 juniors

COUGAR QUARTERBACK Luke Falk is only halfway through his college career. But that isn't stopping pundits from talking about his NFL prospects.

NFL.com draft analyst Lance Zierlein lists Falk as No. 14 on his list as of the best juniors in college football.

"Maybe you are surprised by Falk's inclusion on this list, and I have to admit that I was surprised while watching his tape," writes  Zierlein. "Throwing for 4,561 yards and 38 touchdowns doesn't necessarily get me excited when we are talking about an 'Air Raid' quarterback, but quarterbacks with his combination of size, compact release and pocket poise do.

"Falk will stand in and take the hit to deliver a strike, and he has mobility outside the pocket as well. Maybe I'll be proved wrong, but I don't see Falk as a system quarterback ... I see him as a future NFL starter."
