Colts Owner Jim Irsay Implies Andrew Luck Will Go No. 1 In NFL Draft

The speculation has been ongoing for months, but now we may have some finality -- Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay today strongly implied, if not altogether stated, that he intends to take Stanford's Andrew Luck with the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft later this month.

Both the Colts and the Washington Redskins, who traded up to land the No. 2 pick, have been meeting regularly with both Luck and Baylor's Robert Griffin III in the weeks leading up to the start of the draft on April 26. Luck has been the presumed favorite to go No. 1 all along, but Baylor's Heisman Trophy-winning 2011 season and his fantastic pro day performance have helped to keep him in the running.

Now, it would appear, Luck has prevailed.

With Luck likely headed to Indy and Griffin going No. 2 as the consolation prize, all eyes are on the Minnesota Vikings at No. 3. It remains to be seen whether the Vikes will keep the pick or make a move as draft day draws closer.
