Colts Confirm Luck Will Be No. 1 Pick
by Staff

The Indianapolis Colts confirmed Tuesday they will take Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with their first-overall draft choice.

Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson said after a voluntary minicamp session the team will select Luck, thus making it likely the Washington Redskins will claim Baylor signal-caller and Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III when they pick second overall.

"In fairness to Andrew Luck and fairness to the whole process -- the media gauntlet he's going to be enduring the next couple of days -- I thought it was the right thing to do to announce we're going to take him," Grigson told the Indianapolis Star. "I didn't see the point in prolonging what the world already knows."

The newspaper cited sources saying the Colts' management made the decision last week and had already informed the junior quarterback, who guided the Cardinal to a Fiesta Bowl appearance last season.

Indianapolis got the No. 1 pick after finishing 2-14 in the absence of all-time franchise passing leader Peyton Manning, who sat out the season with a neck injury.

Manning has since been released by the Colts and signed with the Denver Broncos. (c) UPI
