NFL Draft 2012: Stanford's Andrew Luck Will Be No. 1 Pick In NFL Draft

It's official.

Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck will be the no. 1 pick in the NFL Draft on Thursday, says Indianapolis Colts general manager Ryan Grigson.

This news isn't quite the shock of the century but it's always good to finally end any inkling of speculation by publicly putting it out there that the Colts know who their guy is and that's Luck.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Luck will join the team's offseason conditioning program after he graduates on June 7.

It is widely known but not yet official that the Washington Redskins will follow the Luck pick with the selection of Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III. But after that is anybody's guess as the Minnesota Vikings could go a number of ways at no. 3.

At least for now, all Stanford Cardinal and Colts fans can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that Luck can start preparing to fill the shoes left by the departed Peyton Manning.
