ESPN's Adam Schefter says:
No great surprise, it's what most expected, but Colts have told Andrew Luck they will take him with the No. 1 overall pick, per NFL source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 19, 2012
New Colts GM Ryan Grigson told the media he knew who they were going to take, but that they'd announce it on April 26.
Naturally, the news got out.
Luck has long been the No. 1 prospect in the draft, and now the Washington Redskins are likely to announce that they'll select Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III at No. 2.
Had Luck entered last year's draft he would have gone No. 1 overall and unlike others before him, his decision to return did not affect his draft stock at all.
The former Stanford signal-caller will likely make his professional debut in a preseason game against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, August 12th. His first regular-season game will be in Chicago against the Bears on Sunday, September 9th.
Rejoice Colts fans, the Andrew Luck era is soon to officially be under way.
