The Post-HOF QB Apocalypse, and Andrew Luck

On Thursday, April 26, the Indianapolis Colts will make Andrew Luck the #1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft. In doing so, they will have completed one of the most interesting cycles the sports world has to offer us; replacing a legend. That the Colts will select Luck is not really up for debate. Shy of literal death or an unfortunate farming accident that claims Luck’s right arm, there is nothing that would sway them from this course. In fact, I would probably argue that they would select him even if he were to tear both ACL’s this very afternoon. That’s how good he is, and that’s how highly the Colts view him.
