A source close to the Indianapolis Colts, owners of the first pick in this month's NFL Draft, has confirmed that team officials recently met with Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck for approximately three hours, in an attempt to learn more about Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill. "Yeah, that was pretty much it," the source said. "They showed Andrew a lot of video of Ryan, both in-game and just working out. Andrew is such a student of the game that the entire Colts organization was really excited to get his opinion on Ryan Tannehill."
Tannehill has almost inexplicably shot up the draft board of late, following a fairly modest college career. Once thought of as a mid-rounder, Tannehill will now most certainly be selected in the first half of the first round, possibly as soon as the first pick, if not sooner. The meeting with Luck in Indianapolis apparently did nothing to hurt Tannehill's chances.
According to reports, Luck looked on in amazement as the meeting with team brass began with Colts GM Ryan Grigson saying "Thanks for coming Andrew, do you get Fox Sports Southwest in Palo Alto?".
Be excellent to each other.
