Naturally Andrew Luck maintained publicly that he was going to be happy, no matter which NFL team drafted him. It was the smart stance to take, but he had to be delighted Sunday that the Colts finished with the top pick.
Now let’s not hear any more talk that the Colts should trade the pick for a slew of draft picks to wrap around Peyton Manning. First, Luck is going to be a great pro; you don’t trade a player like this. Second, Manning has had three neck surgeries in a year and a half. If he can’t play at some point, then the Colts will need Luck sooner rather than later.
