All speculation can go away as to who is going to be the number one pick in this years draft. Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III went #1 and #2 as expected  last night. With Peyton Manning and the Colts parting ways this off season, Luck will try to give the city something to give the city something to cheer about after the Colts worst season since 1991. The Colts were the first team to start the season 0-13, since the 2008 Detroit Lions (I love my team). Luck has already said, "I realize you don't really replace a guy like that. Those shoes to fill are huge. I'm not going to go crazy trying to do everything that Peyton did. I realize we're different personalities. So, I'll put my best foot forward and try to work hard every day. If one day I can be mentioned alongside Peyton in quarterback history, it would be a football dream come true." Manning was someone Luck looked up to growing up, now he gets to play for his former team and get the team back to the playoffs.
RG3!!! Robert Griffin the 3rd!!! The Washington Redskins have finally got themselves a starting QB. Things didnt quite work out with Donovan McNabb and Mike Shanahan, and from there it was just a sticky situation at the quaterback position for the remainder of the season. After winning the Heisman Trophy last year at Baylor, Griffin will now try to bring some of his magic to the NFL. RG3 ran a 4.41 at the NFL combine, but thats not what makes him special. The fact that he is a pocket quarterback already, will make him very dangerous once he learns the system and gets familiar with defensive schemes in the NFL. Although the Redskins traded away their 2nd round pick this year and 1st round picks in 2013 and 2014, you have to believe it was worth it. They're getting a very versatile player and coach has already said they will adjust the offense to take advantage of Griffin's skills.
