2012 NFL Draft:  Who Has the Ammo for the Indianapolis Colts' Pick?

Colts’ owner Jim Irsay has said publicly that the team will draft the Andrew Luck with the number one pick in April’s draft.  What the team does regarding Peyton Manning is something else altogether. 

Some people believe that the Colts couldn’t possibly let Manning go after everything that he has done for the franchise.  However – Jim Irsay is a bit eccentric.  If you don’t believe me, just follow him on twitter (@JimIrsay) for five seconds. 

This slideshow is based on Manning being healthy enough to play next year and the Colts keeping him – which is what I suspect the franchise is going to do.  For the record, the Colts cannot trade Manning because it would be too big of a cap hit.  According to Phillip B. Wilson at the Indianapolis Star and other reports regarding Manning, the Colts could take as much as a $20 million cap hit for trading Manning.  It’s either keep him and Andrew Luck or dump Manning.

So, without further ado, here are some possible suitors for the belle of the ball on draft day.
