After mainstay Jeff Saturday departed and the Colts gave the offensive line a drastic makeover, the question quickly became, “Can the Colts protect Andrew Luck?”
Nate Dunlevy gives you a few strategies to keep Luck in the land of the living and finds each has counterpoints in the past. In the end he thinks there is no magic bullet:
The Colts’ best bet is to draft Luck and allow him to be himself. If he’s ready to play, he should play. If he takes sacks, they should keep him from getting killed, but realize that a quarterback is who he is. If he can have a great run game or defense, that’s great, but if he doesn’t, he can still become a great player.
