Grigs gets wayyyyy too much credit for the 2012 draft, imo.
Luck was a no-brainer. The TEs at #2 and #3 were over-inflated due to Luck’s abilities. One could argue it hurt our defense as well. Those are some high picks to take 2 TEs back to back. The Hilton pick was good, but you can also argue he benefitted from Luck’s ability and having a pretty good #2,WR opposite him. We’ve seen TYs numbers go way down without Luck. After the first 4 picks, #1 being a no-brainer, the draft wasnt all that impressive really.
Eventhough I am a Pacers fan at heart and started watching basketball in the late 70's, my first hero was Magic Johnson. At that time I had never seen a basketball player better than him, not even close the way he could pass, score, rebound, and play all positions. I was only 8 years when he entered the NBA.
Back on topic, it is cool to see how Bert Jones has influenced so many Colts fans lives. I didn't become a Colts fan until they moved here in 1984, so I would say the first player that really stood out to me here was Eric Dickerson in 1987. Bill Brooks was good too but Dickerson was unreal.
