On Bill Polian’s radio show Monday night, the team’s vice chairman acknowledged that even if Indianapolis took a quarterback with the No. 1 draft pick, presumably Luck, the only way to turn things around next season would be with a veteran.
Polian did not specifically discuss Luck, citing NFL rules that bar team officials from commenting on underclassmen who are not officially in the draft.
“Even if we were to draft a marquee guy in the first round, he’s not going to come in and contribute immediately unless he’s a rookie running back,” Polian said. “It takes time is the point I want to make.”
