The first domino has finally fallen with the announcement today that Andrew Luck, the former Stanford quarterback taken first overall in the 2012 NFL Draft, has signed a four-year contract (with a fifth year option) with the Indianapolis Colts. For nearly every other team in the top 11, this means that similar deals should be close behind now that Luck has signed.
The terms were not disclosed, but Luck joins Griffin as the players atop the draft finally inked to a contract after nearly three months of waiting for fans. Many other top picks remain unsigned -- from Trent Richardson and Justin Blackmon to Ryan Tannehill and Matt Kalil -- but no one should be too concerned about any holdouts.
As for Dontari Poe, he's likely to find his own deal soon. It's interesting that Poe remains unsigned since he's been the consummate team player since he arrived and the bookends around him in the draft -- Stephon Gilmore of the Buffalo Bills and Fletcher Cox of the Philadelphia Eagles -- have already reached agreements.
Poe was the No. 11 choice in the draft for the Kansas City Chiefs.
