Irsay: Colts still debating draft pick

PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay said Monday that the team remains undecided on whether they'll select Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck or Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III in the NFL Draft.

The Colts own the top overall pick of the draft.

"We want to use all the time available to continue to work the process," Irsay said Monday at the NFL owners meetings at the Breakers hotel. "We have no preconceptions. We want to continue to do a detailed evaluation of each player. Robert Griffin is unbelievable. Luck is great as well.

"I don't think it's an either or thing. Both are great players. We'll continue to use the time to evaluate and really sit down and decide to do a contract early or not. That's certainly possible. We're still in the evaluation process."

Luck has been scheduled for a private workout with the Colts, according to general manager Ryan Grigson. The Colts haven't set up a private workout for Griffin yet.

The Colts attended Griffin's highly-regarded Pro Day workout at Baylor, and also attended the Stanford workout.

Irsay said he's been getting to know both blue-chip quarterbacks fairly well.

"Yeah, I really do," Irsay said. "I think they're both outstanding young men in terms of what they meant to their schools, how they conducted themselves."
