Andrew Luck will work out again for Colts, RGIII will not

This time it’s really serious. Not that it wasn’t when Andrew Luck went to the NFL scouting combine. Or had his pro day at Stanford.

But this time, when Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck works out today for the Indianapolis Colts, the NFL Draft will be three weeks and two days away. It’s close to crunch time and ... might the Colts be thinking of taking Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III with the No. 1 pick in the April 26 NFL Draft?

The Colts still aren’t saying, but General Manager Ryan Grigson, Coach Chuck Pagano, offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen and Tom Telesco, the vice president of football operations, will watching Luck today. Colts owner Jim Irsay was not expected to attend, according to the Indianapolis Star’s Mike Chappell, is not expected to make trip.

Instead, he was revealing, via Twitter, that the Colts wanted to take another look at Griffin, too, but were rebuffed.

So the Colts are going to see Luck, who was willing to work out again. “I think I've put together a decent body of work under my belt with the [game] film and the pro day,” Luck told Chappell. ”If they ask for more or need more, I'll be happy to oblige.”

Still, it makes one wonder: Whose name will Roger Goodell call on April 26, when it’s time to announce the No. 1?
