INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts have chosen their successor for four-time NFL MVP Peyton Manning.

The Colts took Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the No. 1 pick as the NFL draft began Thursday night.

The selection was no surprise. Last week, the team told Luck he was their choice over Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III.

Luck is the first player the Colts have taken No. 1 overall since Manning in 1998 and the second Stanford quarterback they've taken No. 1. The Baltimore Colts took John Elway with the first pick in 1983. Manning will now play for Elway in Denver after missing last season to recover from neck surgery.
