The Indianapolis Colts, 0-5 in the 2011 season thus far, have no doubt stumbled this year now that veteran quarterback Peyton Manning is injured and out for the year, but if you’re an Indianapolis fan, this could be a good sign for the Colts.

With a wide-variety of college quarterback prospects that are expected to enter the 2012 NFL Draft, the Colts can narrow down their quarterback problems by drafting a quarterback in the draft and letting the rookie sit and watch the future Hall-Of-Famer, Peyton Manning.

Some quarterbacks on the prospect list are Andrew Luck, Matt Barkley, Landry Jones, Nick Foles, Robert Griffin III,  Kellen Moore and Kirk Cousins. All of which are expected to be a spark in the future of the NFL.

If the Colts draft Andrew Luck, they could be in an optimistic outlook in the future of their franchise. Luck, who attends Stanford University and shows all elements of being an NFL-ready quarterback.

Last year, Luck was expected to be enter the 2011 NFL Draft but he decided to go back to college in pursuit of his degree.

Andrew Luck shows the determination of what it takes to be an NFL quarterback. He is quick off the snaps, and his play action passes are precise, something that may remind you of Peyton Manning. Also Luck has a quality many quarterbacks don’t obtain, successful passing on the run.

So even if Indianapolis qualifies in the pursuit of Andrew Luck, this maybe the only upside to the Colts’ losses.
