The Colts Authority:
Pro Football Weekly (via Paul Kuharsky) says the Colts need receivers badly:
The Colts wisely re-signed Reggie Wayne to give Luck a consistent and dependable target, but they need to add another player who can work outside the numbers. Wayne, 33, is not a deep threat at this stage of his career and a field stretcher is sorely needed to keep defenses honest. Following the release of Dallas Clark, and the free-agency departure of Jacob Tamme to Denver, the Colts are left with just 2010 fifth-rounder Brody Eldridge at tight end. When healthy — and that hasn’t been often in his first two seasons — Eldridge can be an above-average blocker, but he has totaled just 14 catches.
They're right about needing viable targets but I disagree that wideout is the biggest need. Andrew Luck wasn't blessed with great receivers at Stanford. Instead he targeted tight end Coby Fleener frequently in the deep game. Still, the point remains that it is a relatively poor idea to pick a QB first overa...

He was highly rated in high school, but no service ranked him the No. 1 quarterback in the country, let
alone the No. 1 quarterback of the last 15-plus years. As Andrew Luck started to succeed at Stanford and
NFL teams started to struggle elsewhere, however, that all changed in a hurry.

While hardly a surprise, the Indianapolis Colts are expected to take Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the first overall pick of the draft later this month.
Although Jim Irsay hasn't said as much, the Colts owner essentially showed his hand to his Twitter followers on Saturday.

We have been over why the Indianapolis Colts have the first pick in this year’s draft, and it is not just because Peyton Manning was hurt. Check that out here:
Indianapolis Colts Draft Review
Now the real question, how do they get back on top, and make sure they never have something like this year happen again?
Here is my Indianapolis Colts 2012 Mock Draft, and you already know...
Mock drafts are notoriously difficult. It’s hard for just a couple people to keep up with what’s going on with 32 teams, what all their needs are and who they’ve been visiting with. So we’ve enlisted some help.
We spent a couple months breaking down team needs with our “In Depth” posts. Now we’re again enlisting the team blogger community for help in putting together...
1. Indianapolis Colts – Andrew Luck – QB – Stanford - Scouting Report
The Colts still haven’t made their intentions known, but I just can’t see him going any other direction with this pick. Griffin is an elite prospect, but players like him come along every couple years. Luck is in another stratosphere as a prospect, and there are franchise that have waited their entire...

The biggest storyline of Stanford’s spring camp is the battle to replace Andrew Luck, and Brett Nottingham is the man at the center of that story. After redshirting his freshman year, Nottingham beat out two older players to win the backup job last season, showing flashes of brilliance whenever he came in for mop-up duty.
Following are Scott Wagner’s draft rankings for the Quarterback and Runningback positions…
