Report: Colts Still Looking at RG3
For much of the past two years, Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck has been the penciled-in player atop almost every NFL mock draft.
But is it as set in stone for the actual 2012 NFL Draft on April 26?
According to ESPN's Michael Wilbon, the Indianapolis Colts are still considering using the first overall selection on Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III.
Appearing on Tony Kornheiser's radio show on ESPN980 in Washington D.C., Wilbon said the following of the situation:
“By the way, I will tell you this,” Wilbon said. “It’s not like I’m following this closely, but I had the occasion over the weekend to talk to a couple of people who have intimate knowledge of what the Colts are thinking. And you and I have talked very briefly on the show about are they still considering RGIII? Tony, I’m told they are.
"And I’m told that the main reason they are is because there are people in the organization and people they consult — and now you consult all these different people about something a s important as a number one overall draft pick, a maybe once in a generation pick. And they are of the opinion, some people that are having input into this pick, that RGIII is better in the pocket.
“They have stats, they have analysis, they have information that says to them it’s Luck who is faster to leave the pocket and not be as good in the pocket. And RGIII is better in the pocket, he’s a better pocket passer, better arm. And that they are seriously still considering RGIII.”
With 24 days to go until the actual NFL Draft is here, the pick that was thought to be the easiest of this process just got a whole lot more convoluted.
