On Tuesday, the Colts will get their chance for a one-on-one (or, more accurately, five-on-one) examination of the man who has been the presumptive first overall pick in the draft for more than a year, despite the efforts of owner Jim Irsay to suggest that the decision is “up in the air.” Per Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star, the workout will occur Tuesday on the Stanford campus.
Representing the team will be General Manager Ryan Grigson, head coach Chuck Pagano, offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen, and vice president of football operations Tom Telesco. Irsay won’t be present.
Luck is eager to show the Colts whatever they need to see. “I think I’ve put together a decent body of work under my belt with the [game] film and the pro day,” Luck told Chappell. “If they ask for more or need more, I’ll be happy to oblige.”
Luck would also be happy to be a Colt. “Absolutely,” Luck said. “It’s been an incredible franchise. I would love to be part of that.”
It’s unknown when, or if, the Colts will take a closer look at Griffin. If they don’t, it most likely will mean that Luck will be the pick.
The Colts remain free to sign the first overall pick in advance of the draft. Given that the rookie wage scale implemented in 2011 permits the top deals to be done in five minutes, who knows? The Colts could, in theory, show up for a workout and leave with a quarterback.
