Andrew Luck Gets Drafted #1

Well, it’s official. I mean, it was already official, but now it is officially official. Just moments ago the Indianapolis Colts did exactly what they said they were going to do, and signed Stanford Quarterback Andrew Luck.

Luck, looking dapper in his Sunday best, shook the commissioner’s hand, tried on his new Colts hat, and in doing so made the transformation from elite prospect to NFL rookie. By now, every sports fan knows the bio on Luck: an extremely cerebral son of a former NFL quarterback, who has a big physical frame and played in a pro-style offense at Stanford. Luck’s potential has been talked about ad nauseam for the past year, and the spotlight will be shining brightly on him to see if he is as “can’t miss” as advertised.

Unlike many rookie QBs, Luck is expected to start right away for the Indianapolis Colts, who cut first ballot hall of famer Peyton Manning to make room for him. Luck, who threw for 37 TDs and only 10 interceptions last year for the Cardinal, will face his fair share of adversity in his first season, as the Colts are undergoing a complete over haul, cutting many of their offensive staples and losing others to free agency. But, for Luck, it will be a challenge he appears eager to take head on.
