Any idea when the colts announced they would be taking Luck last year (1 Viewer)

Seemed about a week before the draft:

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Colts have informed Stanford QB Andrew Luck that he'll be the No. 1 pick in the draft.
The Colts tried to work out Robert Griffin before the draft, but he politely declined and is headed to the Redskins after a blockbuster trade up with the Rams. "(Luck) is the first pick in any draft I have been a part of," one 20-year veteran NFL scout told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "He might have been picked ahead of (Peyton) Manning. He's not a (John) Elway arm. Neither was Manning. If you were just taking him and Peyton out of college they have very similar characteristics and careers. Luck would have been faster and stronger than Peyton."

Colts selected Stanford QB Andrew Luck with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.
Surprise. It's a selection that's been in the making for nearly two years, though the notion that a player some consider to be the top quarterback prospect since Peyton Manning would end up in Indianapolis seemed absurd until last fall. Refurbishing the house that Manning built will be no easy task, but Luck has the arm strength, athleticism and intangibles to make it a quick rebuild. He won't be as dynamic of a fantasy player as Cam Newton was as a rookie, but his dynasty league potential is through the roof.

They didn't sign him until after the draft though.

@AdamSchefter: Colts announced Andrew Luck as No. 1 pick the Tues before draft. Chiefs not ready to make any announcement, likely to wait until Thurs night
