It’s Official–Indianapolis Colts Confirm Andrew Luck Will Be No. 1 Pick in 2012 NFL Draft
Ever since the regular season ended last January, all signs have pointed to the Indianapolis Colts selecting Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the first in the 2012 NFL Draft. While reports indicated last week that the Colts would in fact select Luck with the top pick on Thursday, it appears the news has become official.
According to Albert Breer of NFL.com, Colts general manager Ryan Grigson confirmed on Tuesday that the team will go with Luck as the first overall pick as the successor to Peyton Manning–who is now a member of the Denver Broncos. With the rise in stock of Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III since January, may wondered whether or not Indianapolis would change their minds on which player to make their new franchise quarterback, but it appears they still have their hearts set with bringing Luck on board.
Of course, the question that everybody will be anxious to know is whether or not Luck can handle the pressure of taking over Manning’s duties. Not only is Luck replacing a future Hall of Famer, but he’s replacing one of the greatest quarterbacks and leaders to ever step foot on the field in the NFL.
Still, the reviews of Luck have been nothing but phenomenal over the last couple of years and he appears to have all of the mechanics to be a successful NFL quarterback–so it should be interesting to see how he handles the pressure on his new team once he officially graduates from Stanford in June.
