Indianapolis Colts Make an Official Announcement Concerning Andrew Luck
Once again, it’s no big suprise, but the Indianapolis Colts held a press conference with the media on Tuesday to announce that they will officially take quarterback Andrew Luck with the first overall pick in Thursday’s 2012 NFL Draft. After the Colts finished their first voluntary mini-camp workout, general manager Ryan Grigson showed his team’s hand in public for the first time. Grigson mentioned to the media last week that the Colts had made their decision, but he did not mention who exactly that pick was going to be until Tuesday. Finally name-dropping Luck as the official selection eliminates any further suspense of a last-minute twist with the number one pick.
“In fairness to Andrew Luck,” Grigson said. “I thought it was the right thing to do to announce that we were going to take him. I didn’t see the point in prolonging what the world already knows.”
New head coach Chuck Pagano also spoke about the quarterback who his coaching career with the Colts will be tied to. “The intangibles are off the chart, you know the skill set, you know his body of work. He’s a gym rat. He’s a football junkie. He’s a great leader in his own way. ”
Luck has been far and away the front-runner for the Colts to take first overall. There is seemingly no more of a safe bet than to take the prototypical pocket quarterback to replace Peyton Manning.
