You have the first pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. You already have one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL if he is healthy, but you have the opportunity to draft a quarterback that is billed as the most sure-thing at the position the draft has seen in years. What do you do? WHAT DO YOU DO?!
That is the situation the Indianapolis Colts are in for the 2012 NFL Draft this April, and it is a question that has been batted around for months now. Do the Colts bring Peyton Manning back and hope his neck stays in good shape as one of the all-time greats starts to wind down his career, or do they take the Stanford’s Andrew Luck and begin the transition from one franchise quarterback to another? It seems like a simple answer, yet the Colts have until late April to make the decision to draft Luck, or make an odd decision to draft another player. Trading down is always an option as well, and may not be the worst decision if they can land a guy like Robert Griffin III, your 2011 Heisman Trophy winner who is also being received well by draft analysts across the board.
