Which Colt rookie, besides Andrew Luck, will have the biggest impact? The Colt’s 2012 Draft has plenty of candidates. The Colts have a decent team, despite last year’s 2-14 mark. The whole team played under a “No Manning Funk” last year. The Colts drafted Andrew Luck a strong supporting cast to go along with the veterans on offense.
