Colts focus on giving Luck offensive options on final day of draft

If there was significant doubt Luck will return to form, the Colts would have (or at least should have) taken a quarterback sixth.

He was truly one of the most complete players in this draft class and the Colts are also getting one of the most physical, nasty offensive lineman to enter the league in years.

But it's clear Irsay believes next year can be very different. "That's just the bottom line".

The guard out of Notre Dame took the call from Colts' General Manager Chris Ballard from his parent's lake house in northern in on Thursday night and said he was "still on cloud nine" when he met with the media on Friday.

"He just doesn't have any weaknesses", Irsay said.

"You could just feel it", Ballard said as he struggled to explain the sensation.

Nelson is a player that both Reich and Ballard scouted heavily.

He spoke with Ballard and offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo after his pro day on March 22 but hadn't heard from the Colts since.




Speedy North Carolina State running back Nyheim Hines - who can catch passes out of the backfield and return punts and kicks - came in the fourth round at No. 104 overall, and the fifth round brought both Northern Iowa wide receiver Daurice Fountain (159) and MS running back Jordan Wilkins (169) into the fold.

A healthy Luck could make great use of all that speed and athleticism.

The bigger question continues to be Luck, who not thrown a regulation football since returning from rehab in Europe late previous year. Luck has previously said he hopes to be throwing footballs again by the start of training camp.

"I'm as sure as a human being can be", Irsay said.

Indianapolis quickly laughed off the offer, indicating that he was not available.

The Colts moved down three spots with their third second-round selection by trading the 49th overall choice to Philadelphia in exchange for the Eagles' 52nd overall pick and a fifth-round selection, 169th overall. "And we wouldn't even think of even drifting in that direction". I've been around, I could feel when I watched Adrian Peterson come out. In 70 career starts, Luck has been sacked 156 times and taken 691 hits - the highest total in the league over that span according to the NFL.

Fans undoubtedly will be skeptical of the latest comments. No matter who the Colts pick, it will be justified due to the roster being in pieces in its current state.

Luck is still rehabbing his right shoulder, which as surgically repaired in January of 2017. But it matters in keeping one Andrew Luck upright. "There's only a few magic men, and you guys have seen them". ". They really kept it away from me".
