Andrew Luck Sweepstakes: Indianapolis Colts Clinch No. 1 Pick In 2012 NFL Draft

Well, the seemingly inevitable has happened. The Indianapolis Colts have locked up the No. 1 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft with their 19-13 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, likely signaling that they will be the winners of the Andrew Luck Draft Sweepstakes this season.

Or will they?

The Colts will undoubtedly have some teams interested in a possible trade situation to move up to the No. 1 spot, but there is still a lot of speculation as to whether Peyton Manning can return to his previous form, or play another football game at all, meaning if I were Bill Polian I would be taking the Stanford Cardinal standout without blinking an eye.

The NFL is first and foremost a business, and the Colts will have to weigh their options before making a decision on Luck, but whatever way they decide to go with it, their unfortunate 2011 season will have a lot of positive impact moving forward for the franchise.
