Andrew Luck Will Be The Indianapolis Colts No.1 Selection In The 2012 NFL Draft
It’s finally official.
Last week, I wrote an article saying that the Colts needed to make a decision as soon as possible. My prediction was them making it next week, which is now this week, so I guess you can say I was right on target!
I’m sure they hid a ton of information from the media as long as they could, to keep the drama away from the Colts organization so they can focus on other draft needs. Honestly, I think it was official back in December when the Colts completed their season.
Andrew Luck has been the most consistent quarterback in college football for over 2 seasons. Which is pretty long in college football because some players are redshirted their freshmen years, and they declare early to become pros, without obtaining a degree. Even though Luck finished his Architectural Design degree in 3 years, which is an incredible feat.
Back in 2010, Luck threw for 3,338 yards, with 32 touchdowns, and a completion percentage of 70.7. He would go on to be runner up in the Heisman Trophy Race to Cam Newton who is now the quarterback of the Carolina Panthers.
This past college football season, Luck increased his numbers in each category. Luck threw for 3,517, 37 touchdowns, and a completion percentage of 71.3. He was runner up in the Heisman for a 2nd consecutive year, losing to the projected number 2 overall pick in this year’s upcoming draft, Robert Griffin III.
I love the Colts making this news official exactly one week before the draft, because it now gives time for their future quarterback to start preparing for their team, and organization. It would have been stupid to wait until draft day because why would you want to put your quarterback under such pressure, and worry? I know if I was in Luck’s shoes and Griffin III’s, I would have wanted to know immediately where I will be playing football for my professional career.
