Andrew Luck doesn’t know any more than the rest of us

Andrew Luck has officially landed in Indianapolis.

No, he’s not a member of the Colts. That will have to wait for April. But Luck is in town doing promotional work and, naturally, that led to questions about the Colts and Peyton Manning. Don Banks of interviewed the likely top pick in the draft, but he doesn’t know anything more than what the rest of us have read and watched about the future of the quarterback spot in Indy.

“I don’t live in a cave, so definitely I have [followed it],” Luck said. “I have internet and watch TV, and if I’m walking by, I’ll stop and see snippets. But I’m not completely educated on everything, and I don’t know any secrets that no one else knows. I just see what’s on TV every now and then.”

Luck, who is training for the NFL Scouting Combine, hasn’t met Colts owner Jim Irsay or any other officials from the team yet. He claims not to have heard about Irsay saying the team plans to take a quarterback and that he hasn’t given much thought to the prospect of being on the same roster with Manning. Perhaps the most interesting question from Banks was about whether or not Luck would try to leverage his position to wind up on a particular team come draft day.

“Never is a strong word. But I haven’t thought about that. There’s a ways until something like that arose. I guess it would be…. I don’t know. I guess I haven’t really thought about it.”

We’re all familiar with cases like John Elway and Eli Manning when top picks pulled strings to wind up with a team that didn’t hold the first overall pick so that’s not completely out of the question. With the Colts clearly intending to wind up with a quarterback and Manning’s future so unclear right now, it still seems like a pretty safe bet that Luck will be holding their jersey when he meets Roger Goodell in April.

  1. Maybe it is just easier for me to say because I am not in his position, but I would like to believe that if I was a lock for the number one overall pick in the NFL, I wouldn’t care where I went.

    Yeah Miami would be better to play in than Cleveland, but does it matter?

    Don’t whine about your teams location, colors, record, etc…

    Go out and let your play show why you were the number one pick and turn that organization into a place where other people actually want to come and play.
