Irsay pretty much confirms that Luck is the pick


When Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Thursday that the Colts have informed quarterback Andrew Luck that he’ll be the first pick in the draft, I immediately checked (and re-checked) the Twitter page of Colts owner Jim Irsay for anything that would suggest otherwise, including but not limited to an allegation that Schefter is a “false rumor monger.”

Irsay didn’t dispute it, and now he has essentially confirmed it.

In his latest Twitter contest, Irsay offers $200 and a football signed by Andrew Luck.

For inclusion in the “Abby’s hatpick!” drawing, the Twitter user must name by 5:00 p.m. ET the college that had the most players drafted in the first two rounds in 2011.

The correct answer is North Carolina and Alabama, with four each.
