Are the Colts being coy, or does RG3 actually have a chance to go #1 overall?
According to Colts owner Jim Irsay, it's still not a sure thing.
Some would say that he's doing this so as to not show his hand, but when you have the #1 overall pick and have no intention of trading it, there's really no reason to do that.
Teams often decide who their pick will be and even have a contract in place weeks before the draft. Technically, since the Colts have the top pick, they're already on the clock. They can talk to any potential draft pick they want, and can start negotiating a contract whenever they'd like.
At this point, there really isn't much else to see from Luck or Griffin. They've both made their appearances at the Combine, they've both had their Pro Days, and they've both been available for interviews with any team who calls, particularly the Colts.
Irsay says it could come down to contract negotiations, but with the new rookie salary rules, it won't be anywhere as big a deal as it would have been few years ago, when rookies were getting some of the most lucrative salaries in the league.
Is Irsay full of it, or is it true that the Colts really haven't decided yet?
