Draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. is high on Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, who will officially join the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday as the first pick when the NFL draft commences.
It's the rest of the Colts roster that gives Kiper pause.
"Andrew Luck, you put him out there and you hope he can survive with this personnel around him."
The Colts have made the commitment to transition to Luck from Peyton Manning, who blossomed from the first overall pick in 1998 to the NFL's only four-time MVP. Similarly, the Washington Redskins believe they will finally land their quarterback of the future with the draft's No. 2 pick, Robert Griffin III.
But former Houston Texans general manager and NFL Network/CBS Sports analyst Charley Casserly offered words of caution when it comes to potential franchise quarterbacks: "It's not a one-man team."
