Coming to many folks’ surprise, the Indianapolis Colts have seriously been considering quarterback Robert Griffin III as the No. 1 overall pick over Andrew Luck. However, the search could now officially be over after RGII’s agent cleared the air.
The Colts held a private workout for Luck today, but they also asked Griffin. However, it was denied.
Owner Jim Irsay has the details:
Honestly, it surprises me that they would turn down the Colts to be the No. 1 overall pick, However, Griffin’s agent probably knows what we have all known for a long time: the Colts WILL take Luck.
In fact, Griffin has already been signing autographs in Washington earlier this past week, so it looks like the first two picks of this month’s draft is already set.
Doesn’t really come to much of anyone’s surprise, though.
