As the NFL Draft draws closer, we will begin our first annual NFL Mock Draft. The four contributors to this blog will rotate picks as we work out way through the first round and will give a short reason why each team should pick each player. We will begin the mock draft today with the Indianapolis Colts on the clock.
INDIANAPOLIS COLTS: Andrew Luck, Stanford
With the first pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Indianapolis Colts will select Andrew Luck. There is really no debate. Anyone that speculates that the Colts will go the other way and take RGIII is simply trying to be unique or draw attention to themselves. Luck has been the pick for the Colts since they finished the season 2-14 and "earned" the top pick. Luck, according to nearly every NFL scout, is the best pro QB prospect since John Elway. You can't pass on that kind of talent, and Jim Irsay won't. He will draft Luck and hope that he is the second coming of Peyton Manning. If not better.
The Washington Redskins are now on the clock.
