According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, The Indianapolis Colts have informed Stanford QB Andrew Luck that they will be selecting him with the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft. This ends a few months of speculation that the Colts might go in another direction with the pick, in drafting Baylor QB Robert Griffin III as their future successor.
Another report by Schefter indicates that the Washington Redskins will be taking Griffin with the No. 2 overall pick, now that the Colts have made their decision.
Now that the first two picks have been decided, the main points of emphasis for the draft will now be what happen with the picks after those. With Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill climbing up the draft boards as of late, other teams may want to trade up to select him.
Other plots include will the Philadelphia Eagles really trade for the No. 4 overall pick and what will the St. Louis Rams do with the No. 6 pick they received from the Redskins in their trade for the No. 2 pick? This year’s draft could be one of the most captivating ones in a while.
