Clayton on Colts: 'Luck is as billed'

John Clayton beat me to Anderson, Ind., to look in on the Indianapolis Colts, and offered his five observations.

Some highlights from Clayon’s observations.

  • "(Andrew) Luck is as billed. He has the look of being the most complete quarterback talent to enter in the NFL in decades." Clayton can see Luck approaching 4,000 yards. If Luck averages out to 250 passing yards a game, that would mean a pretty solid rookie season. Clayton likes speedy Donnie Avery as a potential break through receiver for Luck.

  • "(Dwight) Freeney and (Robert) Mathis have a great chance to pick up sacks at Lucas Oil Stadium. The crowd can be loud, and the home schedule features a slew of young quarterbacks -- Christian Ponder, Blaine Gabbert, Brandon Weeden, possibly Jake Locker and maybe Ryan Tannehill late in the season.

  • Tight end Dwayne Allen has “a little bit of a Jermichael Finley look to him.”

I drive to Anderson Sunday, and before the end of today I’ll be piecing together a list of guys I hope to talk to while I’m up there.
