INDIANAPOLIS -- The Colts said Monday that vice chairman Bill Polian spent Saturday watching Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck lead his team to a win at Duke.
Brooks: Notable college prospects
Everyone knows about Andrew Luck, but who are some other college players to watch this season? Bucky Brooks shares his
list of notable prospects. **More ...**
Polian's presence led to speculation that the Colts already are looking at next year's NFL draft after losing Peyton Manning, who's out while he recovers from neck surgery. Indianapolis opened the season with veteran Kerry Collins and was blown out by the Houston Texans, 34-7.
There might have been other reasons Polian was on the road Saturday. His son, Brian, is Stanford's assistant special teams coordinator, and the family's home is in Charlotte, N.C.
The Colts have scouted top college quarterbacks before. They brought in Andrew Dalton and Colin Kaepernick for workouts this spring. Both were taken in the second round of the draft before Manning had neck surgery in May.
