Paul Kuharsky sees more underappreciated vets with upside in the Colts' future:
Whatâ€™s next: I expect more role players like Zbikowski and McGlynn, more castoffs like Justice and Stanton and more guys who are presumed finished by a lot of teams, like Avery.Â They are all guys who didnâ€™t cost much but who have upside and can help, at least as role players.

â€śYou have two outstanding athletes, two great pure passers, two guys from families that are incredible.â€ť

Andrew Luck hasn't even been drafted, but it hasn't stopped a website for putting up images of an Indianapolis Colts jersey bearing Luck's name and college number 12.
