After Luck & RGIII, it's anxious time for players

NEW YORK — Andrew Luck knows exactly where he's heading and so does Robert Griffin III.

For the rest of the college stars preparing for the NFL draft Thursday, the anxiety is building.

Southern California tackle Ryan Kalil says Wednesday he'll be "sweatin' up a storm" waiting to hear his name called by Commissioner Roger Goodell at Radio City Music Hall. Many project Kalil to go third overall to Minnesota after Luck heads to Indianapolis and Griffin to Washington.

But he just hopes he doesn't have to wait too long.

At an NFL event at a Manhattan park, Griffin says he's comforted knowing where he'll start his professional career. But he adds it "does kind of rob you of that natural draftee experience" where "you're in limbo."
