by | April 19, 2012 at 9:52 AM | College Football, NFL

The inevitable is reportedly inevitable. Former Stanford star Andrew Luck will be headed to the Indianapolis Colts.

From ESPN’s Adam Schefter:

“The Indianapolis Colts have told Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck that they will take him with the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft, according to a league source.

“It’s unclear precisely when the Colts informed Luck, but a league source said the team has known for weeks that Luck would be its pick. His style most closely resembles that of former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, and he is the player Indianapolis wants to rebuild around, the source said.”

Schefter also reports that the Washington Redskins will select Heisman Trophy winner and Baylor Bears standout Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick, according to league sources. Both moves will be made official in next week’s NFL Draft.

So much for surprises.
