Andrew Luck is the Colts‘ new quarterback. As expected, Luck was chosen as the number one overall pick in the NFL Draft and will begin the process to become the Colts‘ quarterback.
He says he is not worried about the expectations placed on him from people outside of the Colts organization but he has extremely high expectations for himself and he will put his quote -best foot forward.
“You can go a little crazy sometimes if you start listening too much to what everybody has to say so I have extremely high expectations for myself,” he says. “I‘m just going to go out there and try and fit in with the team, do the best I can and put my best foot forward.”
Luck says he will be at the rookie mini-camp but then he won‘t be able to be with the team until after his last final at Stanford University on June 8.
Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson says they will work within the rules to get to that point and that he‘s very happy that Luck will be able to graduate from such a prestigious university.
“We got our guy and he‘s the one we feel is going to take us to where we want to go in this thing,” Grigson says. “He lines up with all of the criteria that Coach Pagano, and I‘ve had along with Jim Irsay into what we want to build here and what we want to accomplish.
Grigson says Luck was the better option over Robert Griffin III, who was taken by the Washington Redskins with the number two overall pick. The top two picks will not have to wait long to see each other again as the Colts and Redskins face off during the preseason.
