Andrew Luck Sweepstakes: Would Indianapolis Colts Keep No. 1 Pick And Trade Peyton Manning?

While Andrew Luck struggled this past weekend in the loss for the Stanford Cardinal against the Oregon Ducks, it hardly affected his draft stock as the overall number one prospect in this year's draft. And there's a clear contender for his services, as the Indianapolis Colts lost again. The Jacksonville Jaguars only needed to do the bare minimum to beat Indy as the Colts offense looks more and more anemic week-by-week. The Colts are the only winless team remaining in the NFL; moreover, they're the only team with less than two wins in the league. Indianapolis would really have to start trying to win football games this season to really blow their lead in this one.

Indianapolis should have the inside track at the number one pick now, but the big question is will they trade it?

The Colts still have Peyton Manning, but it's not clear if he'd ever return to full-strength. But if he did recover before the draft and proved that he hasn't lost any of his overall ability, then it becomes a question of selling out the present to bank on the future. You'd figure that Luck would want to immediately play whereever he went and not spend time on the bench.

Indianapolis might soon have a critical decision to make about whether to choose a quarterback they can commit to for the next decade, or stick with the quarterback they have in the twilight of his career.
