(NEW YORK) — With the 2012 NFL Draft just weeks away, the pressure is on the Indianapolis Colts to decide who they will take number one overall: quarterback Andrew Luck or quarterback Robert Griffin III. If today is any indication, it looks like Luck could be on the Colts side.
The team is holding a private workout with Luck at Stanford today. In attendance will be general manager Ryan Grigson, head coach Chuck Pagano, offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen, and VP of football operations Tom Telesco according to the Indianapolis Star.
While the paper is also reporting that owner Jim Irsay will not be in attendance, Irsay made some news of his own regarding the other quarterback the team may consider drafting. According to Irsay, the agent for Griffin has denied the team’s request to hold a private workout with the Heisman Trophy winner.
“A Luck private workout 2day..We want 2b as thorough n disciplined n process of #1 pick..we wanted 2do private with RG3, but his agent said no,” Irsay tweeted.
While it was widely assumed by draft experts that the Colts would select Luck as the top pick, some reports have come out lately that the team has considered drafting Griffin.
