The Colts Are On The Clock

Posted Apr 12, 2012

With 15 days until the first round of the NFL Draft gets underway, it's time to unveil the annual Fan Mock Draft here on, counting down one pick per day until we arrive at the 15th overall pick on the day of the draft.

There shouldn't be much debate about the first two picks, but we begin with the first overall selection, owned by the Indianapolis Colts by virtue of their 2-14 record in 2011. After parting ways with Peyton Manning earlier this offseason, the Colts are assuredly set to select a quarterback with the top selection.

The only lingering question, and it's not much of one really, is which of the top two quarterbacks they'll select: Stanford's Andrew Luck or Baylor's Robert Griffin III. Luck has been pegged as the future No. 1 overall pick for at least two years now, which is to say how impressive Griffin has been to even make this a conversation. After already swooping in to take what had been deemed Luck's likely Heisman Trophy, could Griffin once again steal the thunder? As fun as that would be, probably not.

Luck, 6-4, 234, is said to be as polished a quarterback prospect as has come along in quite some time. Blessed with an offensive knowledge well beyond his years, Luck also has the physical tools to succeed at the next level. In all likelihood, former Eagles' former vice president of player personnel Ryan Grigson will make Luck his first selection as Colts general manager come Thursday night, April 26.

But until then, it's your turn to decide: Luck or Griffin at No. 1 overall?
