According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen the Indianapolis Colts have already decided to draft Andrew Luck first overall in the 2012 NFL draft.
According to Mort:
Colts owner Jim Irsay plans to take Andrew Luck with the draft’s first-round pick.
Sources say Irsay sees symmetry in the franchise history of draft picks and will not pass on the opportunity to complete it. In 1983, the Colts took John Elway with the No. 1 pick, only to see Irsay’s father, Bob, trade the Hall of Famer.
Fifteen years later, the Colts took Manning.
Now 14 years after that, Jim Irsay wants to draft his quarterback for the next 12 to 15 years
The Colts decision, if true, could be a boon for the St. Louis Rams who have the second pick in the draft. The Rams already have their franchise quarterback and have no need for RG3. What will the likes of the Browns, Redskins, Jets, Dolphins offer the Rams to move up to that second spot?
