Colts Will Get a Closer Look at Luck in Next Few Weeks

The Colts will soon get a more thorough look at Andrew Luck. They won’t have the same opportunity with Robert Griffin III.

General manager Ryan Grigson said Monday the Colts plan to bring Luck to Indianapolis for an individual workout during the next couple of weeks. Luck is widely expected to be the No. 1 pick in next month’s draft. Griffin is expected to go second, but Grigson said the Colts wouldn’t see the Heisman Trophy winner work out at the team complex.

“Circumstances didn’t allow us to do anything private with him (Griffin) so we did the usual pro day,” Grigson said during a conference call. “We did the best we could with that situation. We do have a private workout that we’re scheduling with Andrew in the future.”

Grigson was ill last week and could not attend Griffin’s workout in Waco, Texas, or Luck’s workout in Palo Alto, Calif., though there were Colts representatives in both places.

Team owner Jim Irsay has already said he plans to take Peyton Manning’s successor with the No. 1 pick, but nobody within the organization is saying whether they’ll take the consensus favorite, Luck, or the fast riser, Griffin.

Luck is considered the most polished quarterback to come out of college since Manning was taken No. 1 overall by the Colts in 1998.

“Obviously you want to go No. 1, who wouldn’t want to go No. 1?” Luck said after last week’s pro day workout. “I’m just trying to prepare myself for the NFL, whichever team that is. Whether it’s watching certain defenses or going out there and working on throws I’ve never done before. That’s been my focus and it hasn’t been hard to stay on that path.”

    Can’t wait! I’m anxious to find out if they sign him before the draft. We’ll need to get him as many reps as possible before the season.
