Even with the regime change and the countless new faces in town, the sting of last year's 2-14 season can still be felt by fans of the Indianapolis Colts. The team was beyond bad last year. Without Peyton Manning, individual performances suffered greatly.

The trio of Kerry Collins, Curtis Painter and Dan Orlovsky was the main factor in the Colts passing offense dropping from fifth in the league in 2010 to 27th last year.

Curtis Painter, who started eight games, had a quarterback rating of 66.6, which ranked just behind John Skelton. He had twice as many turnovers (12) as touchdowns (six).

Painter, Collins and Orlovsky combined for a 56.6 percent completion percentage. Just awful. Teams didn't have to respect the pass offense of the Indianapolis Colts.

Andrew Luck will change that. Even as a rookie he's miles ahead of where the Colts quarterbacks were last year. He will make everyone on the team better.

Here are five Colts who automatically improved when Luck was drafted.
