1. Indianapolis Colts: QB Andrew Luck, Stanford – The last time the Colts had the No. 1 pick in the draft was 1998, when they selected Peyton Manning. Luck spent his early childhood in London, England, and Frankfurt, Germany, where his father, Oliver, was the GM of two World League of American Football teams prior to becoming league president. Oliver went to high school in Houston, where he was co-valedictorian of his class.

Comment: Because the Colts are rebuilding, that should buy Luck some time. Peyton Manning was afforded the same luxury and had 28 picks as a rookie.
