Luck will visit with David Letterman on draft day.

A trading card company has filed suit against Luck, says Matthews.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union sets up the Jaguars' draft room, running through who’s at the main table. Shad Khan has room for family members at the team’s primary table. I don’t know how many owners have family members with them in such a setting. But I know how many should: none.

More on how it’s likely to be difficult, or impossible, to trade out of No. 7, from Ganguli.

Pete Prisco of rates Melvin Ingram as the best pass-rusher in the draft. That’d make him ideal for the Jaguars if he’s there at No. 7.

Indianapolis Colts

Surpassing John Mackey humbles Dallas Clark, says Mike Chappell.

Gary Brackett is quite familiar with Ray Rice, says Phil Richards.

The Colts are missing Anthony Gonzalez, are watching Jerraud Powers gain confidence and are relentless on defense, says John Oehser.

Thirteen players missed practice Wednesday, writes Oehser.

Yes, the failures of Tony Ugoh and Mike Pollak are bad, but the Colts have been able to replace them, says Stampede Blue.

His straight, deadpan delivery makes him a good guest for Letterman, whose roots are in Indiana.
